E-mails sent by Sarah Palin during her tenure as governor of Alaska will be released Friday at 9 a.m. at the state capitol in Juneau and The Fix will be there.

The messages were requested by a number of journalists and citizens during the 2008 campaign when Palin was the Republican vice presidential nominee, but the governors office under both Palin and her successor, Gov. Sean Parnell (R) has repeatedly sought to delay the release. Officials said they were simply technologically unprepared to handle the requests.

In January, after about a thousand days of delay, the Alaska attorney general declared that the e-mails had to be released by the end of May. (New requests for copies delayed the printing until now).
Some long-time Palin observers are skeptical that the release will bring anything revelatory.

A challenge is pending in the Alaska Supreme Court over whether the private e-mails about state business should be made public. When Palin was governor, she was criticized for using a private account for work-related reasons. Like some members of the Bush administration, she was accused of attempting to get around open records laws. Courts have ordered her to preserve those e-mails in case they are deemed public.

4. They'll likely expose Toad as the shadow Governor........
If they're not all blacked out , that is!
(not to mention, hopefully exposing her for the vindictive, mean, blood-thirsty bitch that she is also, too.)

plenty of time to redact and destroy....


.... more than 2,000 pages of the e-mails have been withheld for various reasons, including executive privilege and privacy, according to Mr. Parnells office. Many of the documents that are being released have had details redacted by state lawyers.
