Palin lies with ease and conviction about abuse of power investigation

As I reported earlier, the Alaska legislature last week released their report that stated Sarah Palin violated the state’s Ethics Act by trying to get her sister’s ex-husband fired. 

Alaska reporters spoke with Palin via phone about the findings, and Sarah Palin lied repeatedly about the findings of the report.  Here is what she had to say to one reporter: “Well, I’m very, very pleased to be cleared of any legal wrongdoing … any hint of any kind of unethical activity there.” 

More recently, Palin has appeared on television repeating the same lies.  She looks straight into the camera and says the report cleared her of any unethical behavior.  But, the report concluded that she did in fact violate the state’s ethics act, and acted unethically.  Apparently in Sarah Palin’s world, if you state the opposite of the truth, perhaps the truth will become untruth. 

It is very pertinent to note in a politician their willingness and ability to lie to the public.  I’m surprised this isn’t getting more coverage in the news, because it is one of the scariest things about Sarah Palin.  She flat out lies repeatedly about her unethical behavior- unethical behavior that was proven to violate state ethics laws by a majority Republican legislature.  Click here to read more about Palin’s interview with Alaskan reporters where she lies about the abuse of power report, and read the original Anchorage Daily News story titled “Investigator: Palin abused power” here.

    Anyone who could actually accept an offer to be McCain’s running mate with a smile and apparent enthusiasm would seem to have already demonstrated their ability to lie convincingly, so this should not be any surprise……

    McCain will be remembered for the most forgettable VP since Bill Miller
