    Judge warned Palin in 2005 to back off brother-in-law's job

    An Alaska judge warned Gov. Sarah Palin's family against trying to get her then-brother-in-law fired, according to court records.

    That warning came long before the controversy over her dismissal of the brother-in-law's boss, the state's public safety commissioner, records show.

    I heard this about the Palin woman. Unfortunate. The more I hear, the more I know this woman should never, ever be VP

    I'd be interested in knowing how many of these books Palin has personally read. How can someone want to ban books they've never read? I've read some of these, not all, but I was never offended or thought they should be taken off the shelves, well except for "The Grapes of Wrath". But it was just boring. lol
    And why on earth would anyone be offended by a dictionary? I don't get it.
    (I placed an asterik by the books I remember reading.)

    At least not yet.

    The list is a fake. Though she did apparently ask the librarian when she became mayor how she would feel about banning books certain -- no list was ever mentioned -- and the librarian told her that that would be an issue for the ACLU, and this came up according to the librarian a couple of times in their discussions.. Palin also apparently tried to fire the librarian on issues of loyalty, but failed, due to issues of public support for the librarian.

    It is still odd that you would bring up the subject in the first place.

    Damn, Palin tries to fire everybody who doesnt agree with her.

    This would be an interesting point of her management style to bring out the campaign.

    According to Factcheck.org the allegation of her asking to actually ban books is false. However, she did ask the librarian if she'd give any thought to removing any books. Also, Secessionist Sarah only pushed the librarian to quit voluntarily along with all other folks that weren't loyal to her.

    You think that Lawyer-gate was bad with Bush?

    Yeah, Caslon, I love to vilify Palin as much as the next liberal, but I don't think you had to resort to using the B word.

    Personally, I love that the mainstream media is picking up that while she was Mayor, the town of Wasilla charged victims of rape for their rape kits (either themselves or their insurance companies). The only town in Alaska to do that: Wasilla. She's a heartless conservative woman.

    Oh bitch is fine, in point of fact I think she new the likes of Calson would soon be using it, hence the "pit bull" line at the RNC. I personally want to thank Calson for setting the precedent, so that those of us who chose, might use it for an other female politician with out reproach from the always fair minded Democrats. icon_wink.gif

    Another case made for her is not being ready for the Executive office. A truly appropriate choice would have been a success in her attempts.

    Thanks caslon and you other guys who provided more of Palins history, There alsways is a certain amount of "added" information to any politicians critique by those against him/her. Hoiwever, from what I've read there is plenty of truth to these stories to cause me to influence everyone I can to vote against this creepy far right woman for VP. We better hope that if (god forbid) McSame/Palin get elected that we have a strong majority of Dems in the congress and senate or our country will be heading toward christian right fundamentalism, with a steady loss of rights and freedoms.

    Palin adviser warned that firing raised 'grave concern'

    A former ethics adviser to Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin warned in July that firing her public safety commissioner would become a "grave concern" for her administration.

    Wevley Shea, a former U.S. attorney and fellow Republican, urged Palin to apologize to former Commissioner Walt Monegan and fire anyone on her staff who discussed her former brother-in-law, state Trooper Mike Wooten, with the commissioner.

    "Your 'political advisers' have given you poor counsel; the situation is now grave," Shea wrote in a July 24 letter to the governor. "I recommend the following action 'now' to restore your credibility and Alaska's bright future with you."
