Email Trove Reflects Scrutiny Palin Faced After Emerging as VP Pick - FoxNews.com
An early look at the trove of emails released Friday from Sarah Palin's first two years as Alaska's governor gives an idea of the sudden scrutiny she faced after she was selected as the Republicans' vice presidential nominee in 2008.
Some of the messages she received at the time were blatantly threatening. In one dated Sept. 12, 2008, the sender said Palin should "be shot," using several vulgarities to refer to her. Another email the next day, supposedly from somebody in Belgium, made the same threat.
Other emails in the trove released Friday include questions from reporters and more subdued complaints from the public. In one Sept. 13 email, a Juneau resident said she was "very angry" regarding reports that Palin's husband Todd was involved in official meetings.
