Reporters staking out Sarah Palin’s “One Nation” bus may soon have some reading material to help them kill some time.
A host of media organizations requested the records during the 2008 presidential campaign, when Palin was named as a the Republican VP nominee. But at the time state officials said they weren’t prepared to handle the requests for a number of reasons, including an antiquated electronic database system and the fact that Palin commonly used a personal Yahoo account to conduct official state business.
Among the news organizations that requested the emails: the Anchorage Daily News, Associated Press, MSNBC, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, and CNN.
Those outlets will need to pay $725.97 in copying fees, and likely hundreds of dollars more in shipping costs. All told, the records are expected to fill five boxes weighing 55 pounds each.
