"It should be easy to figure out that these communications surrounding such a volitile (sic) issue should have been given to me without me having to hustle around trying to find out where they landed and to ask why they were not forwarded to me," she wrote to aides. "Again, that email/communication system has got to change so I am not the last to know."
The morning she was preparing to meet with Kopp – hours before he went before television cameras to announce his resignation – Palin wrote to aides to request some curious information. In the July 25 email titled "Troopers," Palin asked: "What are the three adjectives printed on the sides of their patrol cars?" The answer – "loyalty, integrity, courage" – showed up later, in her remarks about Kopp’s departure.
