Governor Palin’s administration won’t release hundreds of emails from her office, claiming they cover confidential policy matters. Then why do the subject lines refer to a political foe, a journalist, and non-policy topics?
What’s weirder…some of the withheld emails were CC’ed to Todd Palin, the governor’s husband. Last time I checked, Todd isn’t a state official. The fact that Palin and her aides shared these emails with a citizen outside the government undercuts the claim that they must be protected under executive privilege.
So what’s there to hide? My mommy always told me, “if you’re hiding something from me, and it’s not my birthday, there’s about a 99.9% chance it’s not a good thing.” I think the same might hold true in this case.
