JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) -- The treasurer of Sarah Palin's political action committee is urging everyone to read the emails being released today from her first 21 months as Alaska governor. Tim Crawford says the emails will show "a governor hard at work."
Officials today released the emails, which were first requested during her 2008 run for vice president by news organizations and citizens.
Today, reporters crowded into a small office in Juneau to pick up the six boxes of emails -- more than 24,000 pages, weighing 100 pounds.
Some of the emails show that in the months before she was named
the vice presidential nominee, she was dealing with complaints,
rumors and gossip about her family.
In several, she asks about the identity of someone who alleged that she had not buckled her son, Trig, properly into his car seat.
In another, she laments about gossip about her family and marriage.
Media outlets have been coming up with creative ways of transmitting what's in the emails. The New York Times is employing a system that enlists readers to help go through them. Others, including msnbc.com, are working to create a searchable database of the emails.
