The Obama administration has rewarded a (their?) political hatchet man in Alaska who kept rumors about Governor Palin abusing her office alive and in the press:
Alaska State Sen. Kim Elton, one of the leading officials to pursue an investigation of Gov. Sarah Palin during the heat of the presidential campaign, has taken a high-level job in the Interior Department.
Palin was the target of an official investigation last year over charges she improperly dismissed a public safety commissioner who refused to fire her sisterâ€™s ex-husband, a state trooper. Elton led the legislative investigation of the incident.
The report, released in October, said Palin had the authority to fire the public safety commissioner, and the governor said it cleared her of wrongdoing.
In light of the Obama camp’s discussions with Rod Blagojevich on paybacks for favors, this smells. If any scandal could mar Obama, it would be paying off a political hit man who tried to trash Palin and her family. Sarah is still America’s top rated woman politician, and even The One would not be forgiven for being a modern day Nixon in this case.
