Anyone hoping to see thousands Sarah Palin's old e-mails from her time as governor of Alaska online as soon as the state releases them, even as soon as this week, is out of luck.
Only those willing to pay Alaska hundreds of dollars in printing costs are getting a shipment of five boxes weighing 275 pounds in total, according to the Anchorage Daily News.
The State of Alaska says it doesn't have the software to electronically redact 24,000 pages of e-mail messages from former Gov. Palin's time in office and will only make them available in printed form to anyone who will pay $725.97 in printing fees.
The total does not include shipping fees.
The documents will include 2,415 redacted pages that the state calls privileged, personal or otherwise exempt from the state's disclosure laws.
The e-mails were first requested during the 2008 Presidential election, when the former governor was running for vice president with Arizona Sen. John McCain.
As for the actual content of the e-mails, Palin says she's not worried. She told Fox News on Sunday, her current employer, that every rock has already been kicked over about her family's activities.
I don't think that there's anything private in our family now.
Palin is currently on a tour of the northeast U.S. where she visiting U.S. historical sites.
