From Sean Cockerham in Anchorage --
Joe Miller will not appeal the court ruling that the Fairbanks North Star Borough must release his employment records today.
Miller told interviewer Steve Heimel on APRN's "Talk of Alaska" this morning that he wouldn't appeal the ruling by Fairbanks Superior Court Judge Winston Burbank. Miller, repeating what he said in Sunday's debate and an earlier interview, told Heimel he "has not been perfect."
The judge ordered the records released at 4 p.m. today unless Miller appealed to the Alaska Supreme Court. Miller indicated on "Talk of Alaska" that some information could be coming out before 4 p.m but he didn't explain what he meant.
Media organizations have been seeking Miller's borough employment records since this summer and sued to get them. The judge said about two dozen documents sought in the suit shouldn't be released for privacy and other reasons. Medical information in some documents will be blacked out.
Former Fairbanks North Star Borough Mayor Jim Whitaker said earlier this month that Miller used borough computers in a failed 2008 attempt to oust state Republican Party Chairman Randy Ruedrich. Miller first refused to answer questions from the press about it, then acknowledged he had been disciplined.
