Racist Obama jokes circulating via State of Alaska e-mail

Alaska officials are investigating racist jokes about President-elect Barack Obama that have been circulating on state government e-mail accounts. One of the e-mails obtained by The AP asks what the outcome of the Democrat’s victory was after all the time and money spent, and concludes: “Another black family living in government housing!” State officials were unaware of the e-mails until asked about them. Administration Commissioner Annette Kreitzer says she alerted the office of Gov. Sarah Palin about the e-mails. Palin’s office had no immediate comment. Kreitzer says state workers involved could face discipline.
