Taking a page from the White House book, the office of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, now the Republican vice presidential candidate, is now refusing to release e-mails to and from her advisors, claiming executive privilege. However, at least one Alaskan had already obtained some e-mail through an earlier Freedom of Information request. And Dan Fagan, a radio talk show host who is the subject of at least one-email, questioned how executive privilege could be cited when the governor’s husband was sent a copy. (9/4/08)
