Court: Palin was allowed to use private e-mail

(CNN) - A Superior Court judge in Alaska has ruled that former Gov. Sarah Palin was allowed to conduct official state business on a private e-mail account.

Anchorage resident Andree McLeod - who has filed multiple ethics complains against Palin - had sued the former Republican vice presidential nominee claiming that the use of private e-mails denied citizens the right to request public records.

But Judge Jack W. Smith ruled Wednesday that nothing in Alaska law prevents state officials from using private e-mail accounts.

    Who cares, Palin's e-mail correspondence was probably as stupid as she is. Count your blessings Alaska that she quit.

    I wonder how many of these complaints would have been filed if the person making them was responsible for the fees incurred during such investigations? I am betting none would have been filed.
