(Newser) – Alaska released 54 more pages of Sarah Palin's emails yesterday, but it looks like they won't be much juicier than the first 24,199 pages. A state rep says the emails, which are from Palin's first month as governor, were inadvertently left out of the first cache. Most of the newly released emails were sent from aides to Palin, with only a few coming from the governor; the messages were also heavily redacted, the AP notes.

In messages from Dec. 12, 2006, Palin describes what she wants in a new attorney general ("someone totally committed to ethical government, a less-political, unpretentious long-time Alaskan") and expresses disappointment that one of her aides was bringing up names prematurely ("I am finding my circle of confidants to be shrinking daily," she wrote). The state is currently ensuring all the emails that should have been released have indeed been released; any others from Palin's first 21 months in office that are found will be released later, along with emails from her final 10 months in office.
