Todd Palin: Shadow Governor?
Edited on Mon Sep-01-08 10:44 AM by Roland99
Just came across this:

http://www.andrewhalcro.com/shadow_governor

The stories started last year when Representative Ralph Samuels told me about going into a meeting, he thought would be private, with Governor Sarah Palin. Much to his surprise, Todd Palin was there and proceeded to sit through the entire meeting.

Other lawmakers have shared similar stories and were shocked at how inappropriate Todd's presence was at meetings with the governor. Yesterday on the Dan Fagan Show, Representative Jay Ramras mentioned that Todd was working lawmakers offices during the ACES debate.


Interesting.

3. He reportedly did make two inappropriate phone calls--
as part of Troopergate which struck me as very odd. Now this. Also heard her make a reference about being the governor where she said "Todd and I believe..." which also sent up a red flag, I thought. So many weird things! Maybe not the strong independent woman she said she is? I NEVER took my husband to work!

7. I don't even think Rove had a hand in this. Way too reckless of a choice.

9. Thank you for that, Caribou Barbie brings all kinds of goodies to the potluck, doesn't she?
The violation of the FOIA is hugh!!!! (sorry couldn't resist the freeper spelling there)

Seriously, this is a MAJOR issue. Check out Andrew Halcro's blog. Especially read his opinion piece on her for the NY Post, and read the comment wherein someone tells him that he should be HONEST about Palin, because the future of the Country is at stake. She is BAD news folks, and the sooner McCranky dumps her the better. We can't risk having them steal the election and being stuck with HER as president. WTF are they thinking?

10. Perhaps his wife wants him in a position......
It doesn't take much to get "experience" up there in Alaska. The entire state has the population of San Bernardino, CA. There really isn't a lot to it.

The entire situation smells bad.
