From the Democratic side, there are calls for GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin to release e-mails sent to her husband from her private e-mail account. These demands are part of a state probe of Palin's firing of Alaska's Public Safety Commissioner. This is not dissimilar to ongoing litigation in New Jersey, where Republicans want Democratic Gov. Jon Corzine to release his personal e-mails to Carla Katz, who was the head of the state’s largest public employee union and the Governor’s girlfriend.
Corzine has refused to release the e-mails, arguing that they are personal and would violate his right to privacy. His spokesmen say that the lawsuit was politically motivated and dismissed it as a Republican tactic to embarrass the Governor for political gain.
It will be fascinating to see if Corzine comes to the defense of Palin on the e-mail issue. And it will be equally as interesting to see if GOP State Chairman Tom Wilson, who brought the suit seeking the release of Corzine’s e-mails, wants Palin to show hers.
