    In another setback for Ms. Palin, a judge on Friday ordered the state of Alaska to preserve any government-related e-mail messages that Gov. Sarah Palin sent from private accounts.

    The ruling, by Craig Stowers of Anchorage superior court, came as the result of a lawsuit brought by a resident, Andree McLeod, against Ms. Palin, the Republican vice-presidential nominee.

    Ms. Palin has occasionally used private e-mail accounts to conduct state business, and her Yahoo accounts were hacked last month.

    The judge ordered the attorney general to contact Yahoo and other private carriers to preserve any e-mail messages sent and received on those accounts. An assistant attorney general told the court that the governor was no longer using here private e-mail accounts to conduct state business.

    Do a little research.

    Only the titles to the emails were public.

    Wrong again.

    The Associated Press

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- A judge has ordered the state of Alaska to preserve any government-related emails that Gov. Sarah Palin sent from private accounts.

    Anchorage Superior Court Judge Craig Stowers ruled Friday in the lawsuit brought by Anchorage resident Andree McLeod against Palin, the Republican vice-presidential nominee.

    Palin has occasionally used private email accounts to conduct state business, and her Yahoo accounts were hacked last month. The hacking of Palin's private account was significant because it showed that using private email accounts to conduct state business would be vulnerable to being exposed.

    It wasn't widely known that the governor and her staff were using private email accounts until McLeod filed the first of several open records requests earlier this year that yielded some of the email traffic -- much of it redacted for what were deemed privacy reasons.

    The judge ordered the attorney general to contact Yahoo and other private carriers to preserve any e-mails sent and received on those accounts. If the e-mails were destroyed when the accounts were deactivated, he directed state officials to have the companies attempt to resurrect the e-mails.

    "We shouldn't be in a position where public records have been lost because the governor didn't do what every other state employee knows to do, which is to use an official, secure state email account to conduct state business," McLeod said after the 90-minute hearing.

    "It's a dereliction of the governor and her duties," she said.

    This is how pols hide things. They use their personal accounts for government businees. The personal accounts don't have the same transparency to the public...what a slimey character Palin has turned out to be.

    You are desperately hoping so.

    I think we have one of the most honest Politicians in decades to come along and it is that that scares you.
