Mother Jones' David Corn reports that if you want copies of Haley Barbour's emails, it's gonna cost you. Mississippi says it will take 832 hours of human-power to retrieve the governor's emails from the archives -- plus legal review costs, and the state's asking the magazine for $58,000 up front to get started on their Public Records Act request. Barbour's Florida counterpart Rick Scott doesn't have this sort of problem.
