Apparently, Palin fired Monegan Because He Sought More Funding To Prevent Sexual Assaults. No I’m not making this up.
The last straw, the McCain campaign said, was in July, when Monegan planned to travel to Washington to seek federal money for a plan to assign troopers, judges and prosecutors who could exclusively handle sexual assault cases — one of the state’s most intractable crime problems.
In a July 7 e-mail, John Katz, the governor’s special counsel, noted two problems with the trip: The governor hadn’t agreed the money should be sought, and the request was “out of sequence with our other appropriations requests and could put a strain on the evolving relationship between the Governor and Sen. (Ted) Stevens.”
I see. It wasn’t that you were pressuring him to fire your brother in law, you REALLY fired him because he wanted to stop sexual assault cases. Why? Because you didn’t want to upset Ted Stevens. HA! Really? That’s the best you guys have? I’m not a woman, but this would disqualify me from voting for her. Just sayin…
Umm, Obama, can we see the negative ad for this? I mean really. It writes itself.
I wonder if Palin gave assault victims the option of paying for the increased troops themselves just along with their rape kits.
