Joe Miller agrees to pay legal fees

(CNN) - Joe Miller, who lost a 2010 senate bid against Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, announced he won't be appealing a court order requiring that he pay state legal fees incurred in his fight to overturn the election results.

"Given the amount at issue, it simply does not make good financial sense to move forward with the appeal," Miller said in a statement Thursday. "Pyrrhic victories are not my goal. Accordingly, this court fight ends today."

Excerpts of Palin's e-mails: 'Pray for mama's strength'

JUNEAU, Alaska (CNN) - Some highlights from the 24,000 pages of e-mails from Sarah Palin's governorship, released Friday by Alaska state officials:

"Hi again – another head's up: If all goes according to (Track's!) plans, he'll be enlisting in the US Army, active duty, tomorrow. He doesn't want any publicity on this, tho it sounds like a Seattle media person already called bc [because] it may be that there aren't many, or any, US Govs who have a son recently enlisting. I warned him that the media may make a little deal out of it, but we don't desire such a thing bc Track is enlisting for his own right reasons and he's just anxious to go serve (without any publicity). And I'm proud of him for doing so. Thanks! And pray for mama's strength through this! :)"

E-mails: Palin moved to tie oil scandal to ousted rival

"FYI - I've asked Frank Bailey to help me track down soem [sic] evidence of past administration's dealing with Bill Allen," Palin wrote on May 8, 2007, a day after Allen pleaded guilty to bribery, extortion and conspiracy.

Alaska government to release Palin emails

(CNN) - The Alaska governor’s office is set to release more than 24,000 pages of records relating to Sarah Palin’s term as governor. Requests from media organizations for the documents stem as far back as the 2008 campaign.

Members of the media, including CNN, were informed Tuesday evening in an email from the governor’s office that the release would occur soon. The notification said some of the documents will be redacted and others will be withheld due to several legal privileges that are permissible under the state’s disclosure law, including attorney-client and some executive deliberations.

Joe Miller to CNN: "I'm not going to talk about sour grapes"


(CNN)–Joe Miller is giving up, but he isn’t standing down.

He also needs Senator Lisa Murkowski’s phone number. Miller won Alaska’s Republican U.S. Senate primary, lost the general election to a write-in campaign waged by incumbent Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski, then unsuccessfully challenged the results in court. Today in Anchorage, he told supporters the time has come, " to accept the practical realities of our current legal circumstances. We shall abide by the court's decisions even if we do not agree with them."
