WTF: Superior Judge (Murkowski Friend) Orders Joe Millers Personal Records Released

Superior Court Judge Winston Burbank is doing this right before the election. This is how Barack Obama got elected as senator. A judge (Obamas friend) ordered the release of private records of his opponent Jack Ryan who was married to that Star Trek babe. The release of the records doomed Ryan and he was replaced by Alan Keyes which made Obama a winner by default without any vetting. Where were the Judges when it came to opening Obama's records? Now this judge is friends with Palin hater, candidate Lisa Murkowski, and was appointed by her dad, Governor Frank Murkowski who Palin beat in the Governors race. Superior Court Judge Winston Burbank ruled that the public's right to know about candidates outweighed Miller's right to privacy. There is a double standard going on here when it comes to Obama though. Why haven't his records been released?

FAIRBANKS -- A judge ruled today that the Fairbanks North Star Borough must release personnel records of Senate candidate Joe Miller.

In an unusual Saturday hearing, retired Superior Court Judge Winston Burbank ruled that the public's right to know about candidates outweighed Miller's right to privacy.

Burbank ordered no release until at least Tuesday, however, to allow Miller to appeal the decision to the Alaska Supreme Court. Some of the documents will be redacted, he said.

The case was brought by a group of Alaska news media organizations, who have been trying since summer to see borough documents concerning Miller's employment as a part-time borough attorney.

Miller, the Republican nominee, fought the release, arguing that any release of personnel records violated his privacy rights

Among the documents being sought are details of his resignation from the job last year, and any disciplinary actions taken against him while employed. Separate lawsuits were brought by the Alaska Dispatch and Fairbanks Daily News-Miner. The Daily News and Associated Press joined, and the suits were combined. Among the arguments for release was that the state Supreme Court, in earlier cases, has ruled that candidates for office expose their private lives to public scrutiny.

t's not correct to argue that merely by running for U.S. Senate, that somehow everything in your past: your school transcripts, your medical records, your birth certificate, or your personnel file, suddenly magically convert to public records," Van Flein said.

The things i highlighted should be released. As far as his file while working for the public as an attorney, paid for by tax dollars as long as it pertains to job performance should be released. this goes for all who are running for any office.

Thats Bullshit no Judge that was a friend of Obamas ordered Ryan to Release his records. Until after the fact. Ryan was caught in Those Clubs and that the Time was being Divorced by 7 of 9(Jerri Harris I think) She wanted the records out do to what he tried to get her to do in a nightclub. It was all in the news and the Media and long before Obama announced his intentions to run.

The other Republican retired and it was the Illinois Republicans that tanked Ryan's career but more himself.

If one touts education during campaigning, then those records had better be made public.

I don't know if he touted his or not, but the most recent records, whether it be HS or College, should be. Some don't care about education and some do. But for the ones that do it matters and can speak to the character. Stuff like medical. a big fat NO

You do realize there is a HUGE difference between personal records and personnel records don't you?

Is the title here purposely misleading?

While I disagree with the judge's decision to release Ryan's records, it's worth noting that divorce records are not medical records (like birth records).
