Alaska released a massive trove of e-mail messages from Sarah Palin's days as governor on Friday and the search for tidbits and perhaps nuggets of information has begun as a print only release has slowed the initial search for information that could shed new light on the potential 2012 Presidential candidate.
The release of 24,000 pages of e-mails which last from late 2006 until mid-2009 have been released in print form only due to Alaska's inability to redact e-mail messages electronically.
The thousands upon thousands of emails released today show a very engaged Governor Sarah Palin being the CEO of her state, said Tim Crawford, treasurer for SarahPAC, the ex-governor's political action vehicle.
The emails detail a Governor hard at work. Everyone should read them, he wrote in a released statement.
Here are some early tidbits:
A spokesperson for Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell, Palin's former deputy, said Alaska did not receive any requests from Palin's lawyer to redact or withhold any documents, ABC News reported.
Among some early tidbits are that then Gov. Palin received a call from then Vice President Dick Cheney when she was selected by Sen. John McCain, R-AZ as her vice presidential running mate.
I just received a call from VP Dick Cheney. He called directly from his home and asked that you give him a call. Here is his direct number, said Janice Mason, a scheduler for Palin in an e-mail written at 12:00 p..m. on August 29.
The same day at 4:12 p.m., Palin's communications director said she was asking all my prayer partners to intercede for you.
Palin replied: YES! Thank you-please pray for wisdom and favor and for HIS will only to be done. Thank you!!!
