Megamouth Stapleton has had enough, quits as Palin spokesperson
Advertisements [?]

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palins senior adviser and spokeswoman, Meghan Stapleton, has resigned, POLITICO has learned.

Stapleton has been a Palin confidante since December 2006 and one of the governors most trusted aides since she was vaulted onto the national political scene by being picked as GOP presidential nominee John McCains running mate.

Stapleton said she resigned to spend more time with her husband and 2-year-old daughter, Isabella.

While it has been an honor to help Gov. Palin and her family over the last few years, I am also honored to have this incredible opportunity to stay home with my precious miracle, Isabella, Stapleton told POLITICO. " 2 years old, I have missed significant moments in her life, but I look forward with great happiness to celebrating milestones as well as mundane moments with her as I refocus my priorities. I also look forward to seeing my saint of a husband again, too!


Meg has been deeply involved in all things Palin and instrumental in Sarah's many successes, Fred Malek, a prominent Republican fundraiser and Palin friend, told POLITICO. Its hard to replace anyone so loyal, tireless and effective, but the Palin phenomenon will continue. Meg has surely earned the privilege to devote more time to her 2-year-old daughter, but I expect she will continue to render advice to her good friend on key issues.


While I had hoped to work together on so many more projects, time with my precious 2-year-old has been further minimized with the whirlwind commitments of all things Palin, she told the SarahPAC staff. I have done my best to scale back, but Isabella is now resorting to hiding my BlackBerry, and she shouldn't grow up begging for a mother to start acting like a mother.

Now, THERE'S a tell-all book waiting to happen. Interesting that Fred Malek made the announcement instead of Sarah. Trouble in Saradise?
