Alaska Democrats fed up waiting for Palin records

The request for Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's schedules, calendars and specific e-mails was filed by the Alaska Democratic Party more than four months ago. However, the state has notified the Democrats that they won't receive the records until March, maybe later, because of the bulk of requests Palin's office is trying to sift through.

The Alaska Democratic Party says the state's repeated delays in providing public records it has asked for involving Gov. Sarah Palin are "excessive and unwarranted."

The state notified the Democrats earlier this week that it would likely need until the end of March if not longer to provide records first requested more than four months ago, on Sept. 22, during the heat of the presidential campaign when Palin was the Republican Party's vice presidential candidate.

In the request, Alaska Democratic Party chairwoman Patti Higgins sought Palin's schedules and calendars between Jan. 1, 2007, and Sept. 15, 2008.
