A former senior advisor to Sen. John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign says that Sarah Palin's claim the campaign stuck her with the bill for vetting her for the vice-presidential nomination is "100 percent untrue."

According to a report Wednesday from the Associated Press, which revealed details of Palin's upcoming book Going Rogue, Palin was stuck with a $50,000 legal bill for the vetting process. The McCain campaign reportedly told her that they would have covered the bill had they won, but since they lost the election, Palin would have to foot the bill herself.

"That is 100 percent untrue," an unnamed McCain official told CNN on condition of anonymity. "All those bills are from her personal attorney Thomas Van Flein, mostly relating to the Troopergate investigation and other ethics investigations. It is not legal to pay for those investigations out of general election funds, even if the campaign was so inclined."

Complicating the matter is the fact that AP had initially reported that the legal bill was $500,000. The news service later updated its story to say that one-tenth of Palin's half-million-dollar bill was for the campaign vetting process. But the article maintained the claim that the McCain camp refused payment because their ticket lost.


If this kind of acrimony continues; the GOP will be at a distinct disadvantage in the upcoming elections. Ex Gov. Palin seems determined to tear what is left of the GOP up. you betcha.

Yeah, I saw that and thought wow. Who of the two sides is lying, I wonder.

Maybe Palin and McCain should enter an arena and duke it out.

Team McCain is gone.
He is too old.
It's time for Team Sarah to take over.

Two conservative teams? The eastcoast money and the teabag folks?

Great political stratagy.


Don't let your ideology get in the way of your common sense.

Ex. Gov. Palin does have a solid fan base but I doubt if she will ever run for political office again after her last debacle.

She will never live down the fact that she "cut and run" from Alaska. Plus she will have to run on a third party ticket as the GOP has already thrown her under the bus.

So certain are you.
You will see more clearly November 2010.
I think Team Obama is already packing their bags.

On that count, I'd say that its actually very easy to tell who is lying and who isn't. Who is willing to attach their name to an accusation and who runs away like a coward?

That tells me all I need to know.

It is very unusual for a campaign to charge a candidate for the vetting process. I'm certain it didn't happen in the Obama camp. That makes Palin's charge somewhat suspect.

McCain himself may not be the epitome of honesty, but I'm more likely to believe him than her.

Palin has been known to exaggerate, embroider and revise on many occasions, to say the least.

I wouldn't put anything past her.

This woman needs to just go away... It's the fringe sheeple-element of the Republican party that continues to feed her ego and make her think she's relevant.

If the Republican leadership had any sort of brain, they'd openly marginalize her and instead promote some STRONG female candidate like Kitty Dole.

For the sake of the Republican party- let's hope you're wrong because she's a lying piece of sh&t. And this is coming from the McCain Camp

Sarah Palin isn't going to take over nothing, she quit and let the people of Alaska down because she couldn't handle media scrutiny and said she was a lame duck. Sorry, if you can't handle that you can't handle politics. Best to keep with your books and book tour.

With far right conservatives.

She is not electable at all, only a small small portion of the country would be dumb enough to vote for her, I think she's one of the reasons McCain got stomped so bad last election.

Didn't the last person she endorsed lose?

I'm sure it was Palin's fault, the 2 guys running for governor up there declined her endorsement because they knew she would scare independents and dems away. They were right.

Do you mean like running away from an elected post like a governorship?
"Cut and running" as it were; afraid of the investigations.

Cowardly indeed.....

The McCain camp is just in damage control mode.
The truth hurts. That's why they are throwing rocks.
They are yesterdays news anyway. John McCain is too
old. It's time for him to play golf and relax.
It's Sarah Palins turn now.
Moose burgers will be cooking in the rose garden soon.

You better get used to it.
GOP + Independents = Sarah Palin in the oval office.
Look at the latest polling data.
The independents love Sarah.

Yesterday I posted the New York Times book review of "Going Rogue" in the politicians and people forum. Evidently they got an advance copy.

For anyone who's interested in the review, the link is:

Times Book Review


I confess I pre-ordered a copy of the book. My curiosity got the better of me. I don't expect a lot of it, though.

Will-do. You should also have a look:

Gallup polling data HERE

Pretty self-explanatory

She has momentum. - Check that same page at around Christmas -
Her book and interviews will only add to it.
Huckabee would make an ok V.P. but i prefer Fred Thompson.
Just say the words.
President Sarah Palin
Hope and Change we can believe in.
