RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Library of Virginia has released more than 66,000 emails from former Gov. Tim Kaine and his some of his top aides.
They are among about 1.3 million emails the Kaine administration transferred to the library four years ago at the end of the Democrat's term. Processing of the rest of the emails continues, and another batch will be released this spring.
The library says in a news release that the emails provide an inside look into the administration's deliberations on the Fort Monroe's future, business closures and relocations, weather disasters, legislative priorities and other issues. On the advice of the attorney general, emails pertaining to the Virginia Tech shooting are being withheld until lawsuits stemming from the tragedy are resolved.
