Palin’s Aides Fire Back Against New Book

Palin’s Aides Fire Back Against New Book

Frank Bailey, formerly an aide to Sarah Palin, is already facing criticism for his tell-all book about Alaska’s former Governor, and the book will not be out until Tuesday.

Describing Bailey’s “Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin” as “fiction,” several sources close to Palin told POLITICO the book is clearly biased.

“Gov. Palin suspended Bailey and refused to hire Bailey when he sought a position on her Vice Presidential campaign staff and later with SarahPAC. Mr. Bailey has an axe to grind and abandoned truth in his book. The cover of the book tells this story, two completely different photos twisted and Photoshopped to create a fraudulent image. The book belongs on the fiction shelves,” SarahPAC spokesman Tim Crawford told POLITICO, referring to the depiction of Bailey standing by Palin on the book’s cover.

“The original photo was of Palin standing next to other governors at an RGA (Republican Governors Association) event, not next to Bailey,” Crawford said in the article.

“Frank Bailey was the only member of the Palin Administration to be found to have acted unethically — twice,” Crawford said. “He is currently under investigation again by the State Attorney General. Then, as the administrator of certain email accounts, he acted unethically by appropriating account information he was entrusted to protect.”

    Sarah who? Oh her!

    I hope she runs for president so we can watch her lose. Again.

  • Moose

    Why do the liberals fear her so? Could it be that she is a straight talker with common sense ideas, is likeable and appeals to the common folk.

    • karolyn

      I fear her because she would surely take this country down the tubes!

      • bob hubscher

        From where? How much further down the tubes can we go. Odumbdunb has had us hit bottom. There is no where else to go but up. I will take Palin or any of of the other Republican candidates. They can certainly do no worse. In fact Ii would take ANY citizen off the street that has any common sense and I am sure we would all be better off than we are now. Wake up!

  • karolyn

    I saw a brief part of his interview on “The View” today; and he said that it would be a total disaster if she were to be elected. He intimated that she was not a very honest person. To be fair, he admitted his own problems; but then, he didn’t write the book about himself.

    • Jana

      And of course Karolyn, you were just all too eager to believe him.

  • jopa

    Moose: The liberals don’t fear her as much as you should fear her.If you hear a helicopter coming you better run and hide, because Sarah may blow your ass away Alaskan style.
