Sarah Palin’s Legal Bills Need Paying

by | 5th, July 2009

sarah-palin-cartoonSARAH Palin is warning Shannyn Moore, who blogs for the Huffington Post. Sarah Palin may sue for defamation. And she may well need the money any favourable result gets:

The disclosure said only that she owed “hundreds of thousands of dollars.” On Friday in the written statement, attorney Thomas Van Flein wouldn’t give a precise number but said it was “a substantial debt.” Palin said she didn’t have an exact figure yet but “the debt is over a half a million dollars.” Van Flein represented Palin on the Troopergate controversy, which grew from her dismissal of the state’s public safety commissioner, as well as other complaints alleging ethics violations, some of which have not been publicized.

Time out to be with her book:

Gov. Sarah Palin has signed a book deal with HarperCollins Publishers for what is described as her memoir.

“There have been so many things written and said through mainstream media that have not been accurate and it will be nice through an unfiltered forum to get to speak truthfully about who we are and what we stand for and what Alaska is all about,” Palin said in an interview today in which she announced the deal.

Palin and HarperCollins would not say how much she was being paid. Asked why, the governor and former Republican nominee for vice president said she didn’t want to distract from the substance of the book.

Meanwhile, the Huffington Post’s AK Muckraker goes on the offensive:

There is an old expression which says, “In a crisis, do nothing.” Wise words indeed, which means that soon-to-be-ex-governor Sarah Palin no doubt would never heed them. She’s sort of adopted another philosophy. It’s more like, “In a crisis, fly off the handle, be reactionary and threaten to sue someone for defamation in the hopes of intimidating the entire blogosphere and all national print and televised media into not talking about something.”
