Alaska Set to Release Sarah Palin Emails
The state is printing up more than 24,000 pages, which it plans to mail out to news organizations that requested them.
The state is getting set to release thousands of emails sent by Sarah Palin while she was governor of Alaska.
The emails were requested from news organizations around the country during Palin’s run for vice president in 2008.
But despite the wait, not all of the emails will be made public.
The State of Alaska Department of Law said some of the information is considered personal or exempt under the state constitution.
Other emails might be withheld because, under state statute, they were made under the deliberative process rule, meaning they were exchanged as part of a general discussion, leading up to a decision.
The state is printing up more than 24,000 pages, which it plans to put in the mail to news organizations that requested them at a cost of more than $700.
