Andree McLeod, a 53-year-old registered Republican who has held various jobs in state government, filed a freedom of information request for emails regarding the case of a Palin-backed effort to oust the state chairman of the Alaska Republican party, Randy Ruedrich.
Palin's office provided McLeod with a 78-page list (PDF) cataloging the emails it was withholding. Many of them had been written by Palin or sent to her.
Of the withheld e-mails, at least four dozen include Todd Palin, and many of those refer either to the Public Service Employees Association, a union representing law enforcement officers in Alaska. Others including Todd Palin reference Andrew Halco, a former state lawmaker who ran as an independent against Sarah Palin in 2006. Since losing that race, he's become a blogger who frequently criticizes Palin's administration.
An authoritarian's dream... a candidate with a history of withholding communication records. Hmmm.... what do you suppose she's hiding?
