New Sarah Palin Emails Chronicle Turbulent Last Days As Alaska Governor (PHOTOS)

Sarah Palin's last few months as governor of Alaska were marked by financial insecurity and emotional turbulence, a batch of emails released Thursday show.

"I can't take it anymore," Palin wrote in one of the more than 17,000 emails from her final 10 months in office. "I can't afford this job," she said in a different message sent before her July 2009 resignation.

The emails also chronicle Palin's suspicions of other state lawmakers and her anger at being targeted for multiple ethics complaints.

The release follows the 24,199 pages of earlier Palin emails released last year. The most recent trove is being made public by state officials more than three years after several news organizations first requested them.

Here's a look at some of Palin's correspondence:

Palin's emails from April 2009 show her mounting frustrations with the demands of her office.

"Unflippinbelievable," she wrote to aides in an email after learning about an impending ethics complaint. "I'm sending this because you can relate to the bullcrap continuation of the hell these people put the family through."

Later that day, Palin wrote, "I can't take it anymore."
