I believe this was mentioned during the campaign and now it does appear that there was fire behind the smoke.
In an "exclusive", The Brad Blog is reporting that Alaskan reporter, Shannyn Moore, is now saying that federal indictments in the "iceberg scandal" may soon break "concerning use of Wasilla Sport Complex building material for Palin's home..."
Okay, I've now been able to get independent information from multiple sources that all of this precedes what are said to be possible federal indictments against Palin, concerning an embezzlement scandal related to the building of Palin's house and the Wasilla Sports Complex built during her tenure as Mayor. Both structures, it is said, feature the "same windows, same wood, same products." Federal investigators have been looking into this for some time, and indictments could be imminent, according to the Alaska sources.( Rest is under the cutCollapse )
The BRAD BLOG has not been able to receive confirm from any federal sources on this. Our information comes from local Alaskans who follow Palin, and who have been keeping an eye on this for some time, while keeping it quiet at the request of federal investigators.
This certainly lends itself to the theory that she's never getting back into politics again. My prediction is that she will make a beeline for the first major network that offers her a contract, and in the mean time, will make a shitload of money on the lecture circuit. Good thing, too, because it sounds like she's going to need the money to hire a legal defense team to keep her (and possibly Todd's?) asses out of prison.
It also explains a lot about the sudden nature of this announcement, and why she's getting the hell out of Dodge before they can throw her out. I wonder if their kids actually even know the real reason, or they've been feeding them the same happy horseshit that her speech today was full of?
Bring on the popcorn-eating GIFs.....this looks like it's going to be good.
