Here Comes Another One

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin abruptly announced Friday she is resigning from office at the end of the month, a shocking move that rattled the Republican party but left open the possibility she would seek a run for the White House in 2012.


Yeah, right. More like: countdown to the latest Palin family scandal in 3..2..1..


BradBlog now suggests that Palin’s resignation was due to an upcoming Federal indictment for embezzlement. Max Blumenthal at The Daily Beast adds more details.


BradBlog is now reporting additional information received from Alaskans who follow Palin: “I’ve now been able to get independent information from multiple sources that all of this precedes what are said to be possible federal indictments against Palin, concerning an embezzlement scandal related to the building of Palin’s house and the Wasilla Sports Complex built during her tenure as Mayor. […] Federal investigators have been looking into this for some time, and indictments could be imminent, according to the Alaska sources.”


Max Blumenthal at The Daily Beast offers additional details:

One logical place to start looking is the affair that has Alaska political circles buzzing: an alleged scandal centered around a building contractor, Spenard Building Supplies, with close ties to Palin and her husband, Todd.


While serving as mayor of Wasilla, Sarah Palin blocked an initiative that would have required the public filing of building permits—thus momentarily preventing the revelation of such suspicious information.


Alaskan blogger Shannyn Moore suggested at Huffington Post that “rumors of an ‘iceberg scandal’ have been circulating” even before today’s announcement.


  Raw Story

That woman has been a crooked politician steeped in stinking ethics for a long time. She probably could have gotten away with it all had she been a little bit smart and stayed out of the McCainwreck.

Let’s just wait a few days and see what surfaces, shall we?

....but hey, do what you will anyway.
