(CNN) – Sarah Palin said Tuesday Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens should resign his Senate seat, in a statement released hours after John McCain made a similar declaration.
The comments come a day after Palin would not say what she thought the best course of action for the recently convicted senator should be.
"After being found guilty on seven felony counts, I had hoped Senator Stevens would take the opportunity to do the statesman-like thing and erase the cloud that is covering his Senate seat," she said in the statement. "He has not done so. Alaskans are grateful for his decades of public service but the time has come for him to step aside. Even if elected on Tuesday, Senator Stevens should step aside to allow a special election to give Alaskans a real choice of who will serve them in Congress."
So who is going to call Sarah Palin for her to resign?
Is she fgoing to resign as well? ABUSE OF POWER
Americans call on Sarah Palin to also resign
I cannot stand this woman!
why didn't she say that yesterday, when asked? She should have not even stepped in! What a loser!
Palin could not tell what she would recommend for the best course of action because the McCain camp had not told her what the best course of action should be. She had to what on the fax to get to her from the McCain camp. In other words, Palin not allowed to think for self!
What about the 1/2 million dollar Palin house that was built "with the help of contractor buddies'???
palin should resign first
Could we be expecting the same from Governor Palin?
So does this mean that if Palin is found guilty in the troopergate investigation that she will step down?
Yesterday she gave no comment when she was asked if SHE thought Stevens should resign; she had to wait for McCain to TELL her what to say, but considering how often she's been "off topic" on her talking points, she could have given her opinion, if she had one, when initially asked. I am so glad I already voted for the ticket where both candidates have useable, operative brains.
OBAMA/BIDEN '08 & '12 YES WE CAN!!!
will she do the same when troopergate and the information on her and hubby's dealing on their house comes to light?
I can't wait for someone to give a similar speech to her.
This is funny coming from someone who was found to have abused her authority. Duh!!!! Troopergate and lying on expense vouchers about her kids travel!!!!! Also, I hear that she has a home that received some questionable renovations also. Wonder if she will step down also once this is investigated.
You first, you were found to have abused your power before Stevens was found guilty. Walk the walk big mouth, we want to be rid of you.
Geez! Took her long enough. She couldn't have said this yesterday getting on that plane??
Sarah I think both you and John should step aside. Your rallys have been nothing but hate rallys and all your attacks are nothing but vicious and hate ful.
So Gov Palin are you going to step down because you were found guilty of abusing your power? That would be something a person of honor or Pro American would do. How about that?
Hey Sarah Palin, it looks like there will be a senate seat open for your state. Please just go home and think about running for that, and leave our country alone. You know you want to along with your husband Todd!
POT Meet Kettle...its black
Palin voting democratic . . . come on the irony is great!
Now lets go after all the corruption. Troopergate should be made open to the public so we can see how honest and fair that investigation is going. Also, what about the Navy cover up of the fatal accident at the gates of the Virgina navel base in 1964. Did he kill someone and then have it covered up – the people would like to know.
You should Pale-in to resign
Is Palin going to resign to for here ethics violation as well?
So when will she resign???
