A former employer of Alaska Senate candidate Joe Miller is seeking answers to why thousands of e-mails went missing when he left the Fairbanks North Star Borough last year.
Borough attorney Rene Broker says about 15,000 e-mails have been recovered, though it's not clear if there are more to be found.
She's seeking an answer from Miller for why those e-mails went missing from his inbox when he resigned in 2009 and whether he has any public records in his possession.
A message left for a Miller attorney wasn't immediately returned.
Miller was an attorney for the borough for seven years. In 2008, he was disciplined for lying about using work computers for political purposes.
The investigation was first reported by the Alaska Dispatch.
