News of yet another private email account for Sarah Palin could affect the Troopergate probes by the Alaska state legislature and the state personnel board, the Washington Post reports this morning.
Palin and a close circle of aides had accounts on the “PalinForGovernor.com” domain, a privately-run domain she had used for her campaign, that paper found.
A technician described to the Post how he set up email accounts for Palin and others this spring at the direction of aide Frank Bailey. Bailey denied the account as “completely inaccurate” and told the paper “we haven’t used that domain in a long time.”
Emails have been used as important evidence as details of the Troopergate scandal have unfolded in the public eye. Palin used emails between herself and aides to argue that Walt Monegan, whose firing is at the center of the scandal, had a “rogue mentality” and refused to work within the administration’s wishes. Recently, Monegan has said he has other emails that prove otherwise.
