E-mails: Palin moved to tie oil scandal to ousted rival

Juneau, Alaska (CNN) - Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin moved quickly to link a key figure in a corruption scandal that rocked the state's political establishment to her defeated predecessor, newly released documents show.

"FYI - I've asked Frank Bailey to help me track down soem [sic] evidence of past administration's dealing with Bill Allen," Palin wrote on May 8, 2007, a day after Allen pleaded guilty to bribery, extortion and conspiracy.

    I haven't watched her porn movie but that round open mouth is probably instrumental in the film. Then again, the face that goes with it and the attitude is more of a low class 14th street hooker in DC.

    "Democrats sure would have done the same."

    Is that why Obama promised not to prosecute Bush and Cheney and blew all the deadlines for doing so? Thanks for playing, meathead.

    one thing about Sarah Palin, she is NEVER wrong and if she is it's always somebody else's fault.....usually the "lamestream media" you know with those gotcha questions they always ask her. That is why Ms Sarah will make a good president....all heer decisions will be the right ones since she's never wrong. 🙂

    This is from 2007, before we knew who Sarah Palin was! Now that we know, is anyone surprised? Never my fault, I didn't do it, blah, blah, blah. Sounds like Bart Simpson with a get even mentality. Please run Sarah!!!! It will be fun to watch you have to pack up your tent just like "the Donald". If you can't accept responsibility for anything, running for public office should never be in your sights.
