Looks like Gov, Sarah Palin’s limelight of popularity is starting to fade and facts surrounding her political career are now being judged. The Republican Party must stop to think how to handle this backslide of negative publicity and how their top pick is becoming a major PR crisis.
The AFP, points out that Republican vice presidential pick Sarah Palin faced accusations Sunday of handing jobs to friends while serving as Alaska state governor, as the presidential campaign grew increasingly negative.
Citing that The New York Times reported Palin had given a $95,000-dollar-a-year directorship of the state division of agriculture to a high school classmate name Franci Havemeister. Why? Well all because Havemeister revealed her childhood love of cows as a qualification for running the agency.
The paper conducted an investigative report that exposed Havemeister was one of at least five schoolmates Palin hired, often at salaries far exceeding their private sector wages.
Palin continues to receive negative press, even The Times writes:
“Throughout her political career, she has pursued vendettas, fired officials who crossed her and sometimes blurred the line between government and personal grievance, according to a review of public records and interviews with 60 Republican and Democratic legislators and local officials.”
In their investigation they show that in Alaska, Palin was running an administration that “puts a premium on loyalty and secrecy.”
The Times further revealed that Palin and her top aides sometimes use personal e-mail accounts for state business and dozens of e-mails obtained by The Times showed that her staff members studied whether that could allow them to beat subpoenas seeking public records.
No way around it, facts are facts. Do you think that Sarah Palin is in trouble?
