    Here are two articles about Palin's private email accounts and that she used them for personal business. She also apparentlly cc'd Todd on a number of official mails, innappropriately (they say) as he does not hold elected office.

    I am probably even less comfortable thinking about Todd as a 'shadow VP' than Sarah because of his alaskan independence "Damn flag secede from the union" party membership. (THough, he is cute.)

    Anyway, article 1:


    washingtonpost.com

    And article 2 is more of the same PLUS an indication that Palin's polar bear stance is at complete odds with the state's scientists assessment, and that her communication with them was entirely through the private accounts:

    THis hasn't been on the news cahnnels, I don't think, but comes up when you google news with specific terms.

    I bet she could change her e-mailing behavior in a heartbeat and thinking it's enough to disqualify her from consideration is over the top--even if she has a cute hubby.

    I don't think it's enough to disqualify her either, but this part really cheeses me:

    vs:

    And she worked with the scientists thorugh the private account, which smells rotten since she lied about their findings.

    Transparency and honesty anyone? I'd go for just one of them at this point. She's got neither.

    There is so much heresay and third party claims that I would be hard pressed to take any of this information without a huge grain of salt.
    Too many people digging in obscure little corners to discredit her imho.

    I know there's not a snowball's chance in hell that you or anyone will read through this (it's too much fun bashing the abortion issue instead!) but I googled for something more beefy. There's a whole listy of environmental stuff, written up by the guy in the article above that wanted the polar bear emails. Don't read it cuz it's long and it's late! But I'll bold a few points if you feel like skimming.

    Sarah Palin's record on environment is abysmal

    Ok-- I see an article that says "blablaba is abysmal". It's already biased no matter who it's about.

    Ya and she communicated with those research scientists through private email accounts which she hoped would not be accountable..... And she misrepresented the findings .... Evidently because ES status keeps us from drilling in ANWR.

    Steiner (who brought it to the press) had to get the records from federal records, because the governors office would not comply with a records request.

    That's my understanding of it.
