Alaska investigates racist e-mails (AP Barf Alert)
AP Obama ^

Posted on 12/17/2008 8:43:39 PM PST by davek70

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Alaska officials are investigating racist jokes about President-elect Barack Obama that have been circulating on state government e-mail accounts. One of the five e-mails obtained by The Associated Press asks about the outcome of the Democrat's victory after all the time and money invested and concludes: "Another black family living in government housing!" State officials were unaware of the e-mails until asked about them by the AP. Three of the racist messages were confirmed by the state's information technology division after an electronic search of the government's e-mail system, Administration Commissioner Annette Kreitzer said Wednesday. "It's embarrassing to the state," she said. Kreitzer said she alerted the office of Gov. Sarah Palin - the failed Republican vice presidential candidate - about the e-mails. Bill McAllister, Palin's spokesman, said in an e-mail that the matter concerned individual actions taken by a handful of state employees among thousands. "My understanding is that the Department of Administration is following up on this with the individuals who took action to forward the offensive e-mails," he said. "This is, of course, a confidential personnel and disciplinary matter that has nothing to do with the governor's office." The Rev. Alonzo Patterson, state chairman of the Alaska Black Leadership Conference, encouraged Palin to address the e-mails. "They're doing that in a state setting," he said. "She should condemn it." Officials were not releasing the names or positions of workers involved. It appears the original e-mails were sent to state employees from outside the state system, but some state employees forwarded them. One e-mail, with the subject line of "Night Befo Crizzmus," was forwarded dozens of times, Kreitzer said.

Came across this on HotAir. Almost didn't waste my time posting it, but doing it to once again to point out the pathetic media... Looks like another excuse for the APO to link another negative story INDIRECTLY to Sarah. The media is unbelievable. Once again, they refer to her as "The Failed VP Candidate".

Hate to say this, but I have a feeling this goes on in many states and businesses and NEVER gets reported, so question, why is this even news? Because the idiots in the general public will see her name attached to the story and perceive it as another negative directed at her even though she has NOTHING to do with it!!! They are truly scared to death of her.

Are state officials putting as much effort into finding out who burned down her church? Presumably in the name of Peace, Truth and Justice.

She was the most succesful VP candidate in the history of this country. She almost pulled the failed candidate over the line.

It’s not funny. Another black family in government housing? Anyone using state email to send racist jokes should be dealt with. What the heck are people doing using their work email to send jokes, pictures, or anything else not work related. Use a damn yahoo or hotmail account.

Good question... I seriously doubt it. Which, BTW, when are we going to hear some more news on this story??

Demonrat operative’s plant: perhaps the same person(s) who tourched Palin’s church.

Too bad the MSM are too busy picking out their outfits for the Great Obambi Coronation.

It’s the same despicable person who wrote it in the other article.

I remember the name because I wrote an email to the paper in Alaska that printed the earlier article.

d’Oro/AP’s sleazy race-baiting to support Barack Obama

Rachel d’Oro of the Associated Press offers an extremely sleazy, disreputable, race-baiting article called “Alaska’s minorities feel ignored by Palin” (link). Articles like this show exactly how a Barack Obama presidency would operate: surrogates - assisted by the mainstream media - would attempt to racialize every decision made by Obama in an attempt to silence critics.
Alaska’s black leaders say they’re not surprised to see Gov. Sarah Palin at the center of the controversy over injecting the race issue into the presidential campaign.

This what you get with an affirmative action fraud who has gammed the legal systems all his adult life and now really believes he’s entitled to the job he demands and without having to meet the minimal Constitutional requirements. THIS fraudulent leftist is the end result of allowing affirmative action and political correctness to destory the nation and sissify our governemnt and courts.

Its a safe bet that this same joke (and others like it) have made, and are still making, the rounds on the computers of all 50 state governments, what passes for a government in Washington, DC, the computers of the staffs of all Senators and Representatives, the RNC, the DNC and the rest of the literate world.

Leftists have dead souls else they could not worship the slaughter of alive unborn babies as an empowerment. This means that they have to hate, viscerally, in order to feel alive. They feel empowered by their deep hatred and self-righteousness. In the end, they have made themselves little gods, rejecting the Creator and learning to hate anyone who acknowledges His Sovereignty.

Unfortunately, it’s not a joke. It IS a black family and they WILL be in government housing,,,

What happened to free speech, free press, free expression? We can’t get Blagovich’s emails. I’d love to see what college professors at UCLA are saying right now.

Probably not going to happen though.

Oh my! That's certainly something we have to get to the bottom of!

It's a good joke, but it's been around for a while now. I imagine it's been in a few more states than Alaska. BTW, AP, what's the latest on the arsonist who burned down Sarah Palin's church? Or are you too busy tracking down people's jokes on their computers?

"Another black family living in government housing!"

How is this racist? Obama himself has called for more Section 8 housing.

Hell, Obama himself moves into government housing in a few weeks.

I believe d ‘oreos email address is:

rdoro@ap.org

Frankly, it would be pretty awesome to see some RICO charges brought against AP. I’d pay good money to see that.

My family lived in AK for 15 years in the 50’s and 60’s and just having food for 7 i’m sure was tough enough. They keep this crap up, it will fail hard.

Well, the drive by media hasn't done much reporting about that incident - yet, and I doubt they will. I asked my wife if she'd heard about the church being set on fire - since she watches the DBM evening news most days before I get home from work. Not one word on ABC evening news...... and you think they will worry about "who done it"?
