This woman is not to be trusted. Her actions in Alaska speak for themselves. McCain is mentally unfit to run America and I sure don't want her stepping into power when something happens.

These two people would be the absolute worst choice to help the American people in this time of war and crisis.

I find it laughable that people are screaming PUBLIC TRUST, ETHICS VIOLATION, ABUSE OF POWER like Palin in the only politician to have done these things. For cryin' out loud, we have an entire Congress that has done the same, some worse than others.

I'm quite sure her abuse of office is relatively minor if compared to what some of the jackels in Congress have done.

So because other people have done these things it makes it acceptable?

Wasn't one of Palin's platforms: "Fighting corruption in her own party"?

Oh, believe me, I wouldn't vote for either one of these jokers if a gun was pointed at my head.

Never said it was acceptable. Just pointed out that these types of things seem to be the standard mode of operation for politicans.

In this case, I figure if the Investigative Committee thinks she abused her office, then it is up to the Investigative Committee to do whatever they deem necessary to punish her for that abuse. If they don't, then it's a moot point.
What's the point of finding she abused her office, if they aren't going to do anything about it? Seems kinda stupid to me.

If she abused her office it should be up to the American taxpayers and voters to send her scrawny butt and that stupid folksy, whining, nasal voice back to Alaska where she belongs; not as next in line as president
of the mightiest nation in the free world. Hockey Mom and JoeSixpack need to stay home, not wander the corridors of power with the real big dogs. If she knew that this skeleton in her closet was going to be revealed
and she didn't notify the GOP, then both she and the GOP leaders are stupid for not vetting her properly and have no business with their fingers on the red button.

She has said over and over again that she is the one to go to Washington-though- and fix what is wrong with -though- it. Well, now gee - though - she can't say that anymore now can she?

Meanwhile the desperation on the right is glaring trying to discredit the investigation..."it's Clinton's fault!"

Look for a major recall now up in Alaska. Good ridence! Throw the bumb out!

Anyone else remember the librarian incident?

Someone else was faced with losing their job, because Palin wanted to abuse her power.

What's funny is that liberals in this forum are saying " I can't wait for the backlash from this report" and conservatives protecting their party are responding that this is just old news...

What I don't understand is why do people believe solely in one party or the other? Views on how the government should be run become extremely distorted if you are on one side or the other. I get so sick of listening to conservative's and liberal's extreme party views. While in reality both party's have very good points and values. But, what really makes me mad...and really is sick and when for example liberals take extreme action and bomb certain universities because it does not follow their viewpoint or party guidelines...if anyone knows what i'm talking about even though it did happen awhile ago. Their are many acts like this that happen a lot. Maybe not as extreme, but harmful to others. For example, a group of people by a university I go to have now several times smashed an army recruitment windows center...really what's the point? It's sad and sickening. When are people going to realize their party is not solely correct?

I heard that Sarah Palin tried to mobilize the Lousiana National Guard to invade Afganistan during the New Orleans Mardi Gras season.

It's a shame really. I have been so down gosh darnit because of the economic catastrophe and all that I can't enjoy watching Sarah implode!

This incident should be enough to destroy the last ditch desperation fear mongering, race baiting hockey mom from Wasilla (meth capital of AK) and her attempt to revive the McCain campaign.

10 republicans and 4 democrats unanimously found her GUILTY as charged.
10 republicans you know it's gotta be bad for that!!

You mean like Obama and ACORN? You know, voter fraud that's under investigation?

Palin, who has denied any wrongdoing and has said she has nothing to hide, has hired private lawyers to represent her in the matter. "Sarah Palin looks terrible! Her face is like horses azz!" said one of her lawyers. I think no one will represent her.

It looked like she was the one on the far right. Cute little thing!

BT, where you been?

WASILLA -- Back in 1996, when she first became mayor, Sarah Palin asked the city librarian if she would be all right with censoring library books should she be asked to do so.

According to news coverage at the time, the librarian said she would definitely not be all right with it. A few months later, the librarian, Mary Ellen Emmons, got a letter from Palin telling her she was going to be fired. The censorship issue was not mentioned as a reason for the firing. The letter just said the new mayor felt Emmons didn’t fully support her and had to go.

Shortly after becoming mayor, former city officials and Wasilla residents said, Ms. Palin approached the town librarian about the possibility of banning some books, though she never followed through and it was unclear which books or passages were in question.

Anne Kilkenny, a Democrat who said she attended every City Council meeting in Ms. Palin’s first year in office, said Ms. Palin brought up the idea of banning some books at one meeting. “They were somehow morally or socially objectionable to her,” Ms. Kilkenny said.

The librarian, Mary Ellen Emmons, pledged to “resist all efforts at censorship,” Ms. Kilkenny recalled. Ms. Palin fired Ms. Emmons shortly after taking office but changed course after residents made a strong show of support. Ms. Emmons, who left her job and Wasilla a couple of years later, declined to comment for this article.

Just thought I'd cite a couple of sources for those who are unfamiliar with this story, as I was.

The subject of the story is at least an affront to First Amendment rights.

It's true that a city library is under the jurisdiction of local government, and that government has some authority over the catalog of a public library, but the library exists at the will of the people.

The story suggests that Palin was in favor of dictating what was in the best interests of the townspeople, rather than serving the interests of the townspeople. Palin changed her decision after firing the librarian, but that only underscores that if the public didn't protest, Palin would have let her original decision stand.

Most importantly, Palin's reversal also underscores that her firing the librarian was clearly a result of the librarian's refusal to support Palin's proposal to ban and/or censor books.

It is so blatant that this is nothing but politically motivated. Why release the findings within weeks of the Election? There was over 1,000 pages of Documentary Evidence, and the most that any of these Legislators spent going through it was roughly six hours. Who can read through and closely scrutinize 1,000 pages of Evidence, much less a Novel, in less than a day?

Not to mention that the Chairman of the Investigative Committee was overheard discussing an "October Surprise".

Also, people like to point out that Republicans were on the Committee as well, but what they conveniently fail to mention is that these are amongst the same Republicans whom Governor Palin fought against.

This is nothing more than a Kangaroo Hearing.

First the McCain people wanted this release prior to the election. They asked for it to b fast tracked.

The Legislators have their aides read it and compile it into a reports. All lawmakers do that. Even the President gets a PDB (Presidential Daily Briefing). If he had to read every law change , proposal, happening in the world he'd never have time for his awkward giggles.

Everyone is talking about an October surprise. It's water cooler talk and usually becomes water cooler talk around Spring of an election year. Every election year.

She blew it! She abused an elected office. She should be thrown out. I say that for all elected officials. Do many do it? sure! Should all that do it be thrown out of office!? ABSOLUTELY!

Democrat, Republican, Independent ..... all of them!

The safety commissioner was fired for poor performance and failing to do what he was assigned to do, and nowhere in the article, or any of the hit piece articles do they deny that the safety commissioner was not fired for legitimate reasons. Palin didn't break any laws, and there is no evidence that Palin fired the Safety commissioner because of the bad cop. Palin's husband was the person filing complaints about the guy, as is and was his right as a citizen.

Obama attends a fund raiser with a convicted terrorist, and that is ok with the Obamaphiles, but Palin's husband complains about a bad cop, and Palin has abused her power, what garbage.

Nobody is going to buy this stinking load of rotten fish.

Not to mention the rampant voter fraud being perpetrated by Obama's group. The one he said would shape his agenda when he got to the white house. Nobody cares about that though. Their busy trampling this woman over piddly bullcrap.

I have never seen the media this biased in favor of a campaign before. You would think that people would see this, and the phrase "Won't get fooled Again" might be going through their heads. Why does the corporate controlled media support this guy so blatantly. I found a rare article the other day pointing out this obvious bias, in the way the media has scrutinized every facit of Palin's life, while giving Obama a free pass throughout the entire election period. The contrast is stark, and astounding. The sheople contintue to allow themselves herded towards the edge of the cliff.

Its just as bad on these forums. Its a bunch of people who claim to "deny ignorance", yet they close their eyes when Obama gives 800,000 to a group thats is trying to steal an election for him. Can you imagine the ATS uproar if McCain had been caught doing this with a voter organization?

The fact is, the people here and in the media who claim to have moral superiority, are nothing more than hypocrites. As long as the voter fraud is being done to get their guy elected, its A-OK. Instead, they focus their rage on a corrupt cop getting fired (ironic considering the hatred for authority and cops on these forums).
