Dear Bullwinkle: Sarah Palin’s Emails Are For Sale

by | 18th, October 2008

WE lose a lot of data in the UK. And it can be valuable data.

The Government is hot on identity theft, and has set out prove how easily your identity can be stolen by losing yours in the post. This is why you need an ID card.

Over in the US of A, Sarah Palin understands more about the value of data. You can see her emails. It’ll cost you $15 million.

Sarah Palin’s office has discovered a renewable resource to bring millions of dollars into Alaska’s economy: the governor’s e-mails.

Do pictures cost more?

The office of the Republican vice-presidential nominee has quoted prices as high as $15 million for copies of state e-mails requested by news organizations and citizens. No matter what the price, most of the e-mails of Palin, her senior staff and other state employees won’t be made public until at least several weeks after the Nov. 4 presidential election, her office told on Thursday.

The cost:

When the Associated Press asked for all state e-mails sent to the governor’s husband, Todd Palin, her office said it would take up to six hours of a programmer’s time to assemble the e-mail of just a single state employee, then another two hours for “security” checks, and finally five hours to search the e-mail for whatever word or topic the requestor is seeking. At $73.87 an hour, that’s $960.31 for a single e-mail account. And there are 16,000 full-time state employees. The cost quoted to the AP: $15,364,960.

The email where she declares war on Mooseland is worth the money alone…
