JUNEAU, Alaska — E-mails obtained by The Associated Press suggest Todd Palin was intimately involved in decisions related to state government when his wife was governor of Alaska.

The e-mails show Todd Palin was included in messages on a wide range of government and political issues. Aides to then-Gov. Sarah Palin regularly sought Todd Palin's advice on such things as state board appointments.

In one e-mail, Todd Palin advocates having an Alaska newspaper removed from a press release list after Sarah Palin complained about an editor's fairness.

The e-mails, released to AP after a public records request, were accompanied by a 19-page list detailing those withheld, citing executive privilege, privacy or other reasons.
