Sorry no

It's uncertain whether she did or did not support that or even knew about it. Blame the state legislature and the then governor at the time, and stop laying the blame at Palin.

I haven't seen anything there to convince me otherwise. First of all, she hired the police chief, and his actions are her responsibility. If she didn't know about it, then it makes her negligent in her duties. Second, as Mayor, she would be required to read and sign off on the budget, so she would have direct knowledge if the budget for this expense was cut. Third, this issue has dogged her for close to two years now, if she didn't know about it she would have come forward and said something by now. Her silence is just as damning.

The facts may be circumstantial, but cases are made on circumstantial evidence all the time.

Actually one of her press people did say something. Might want to take a look at it.

No her silence isn't damning.

Thirdly the entire context of this stupid issue has been turned very salacious.

Take a look at a towns budget sometime. It may not even be in the towns budget, as they billed the insurance company.

It was the state legislature not the Police Chief, who made this practice. The Police Chief just used the tools given to him. I fail to see why the hell it is Palin's responsibility for the Chief of Police using tools given to him by the state.

Cases made on circumstantial evidence, that work, would be things like DNA, fingerprints etc. Other circumstantial evidence may or may not pass the muster for having enough proof.

This does not amount to facts. It amounts to someone trying to smear Palin with salacious news which may or may not have anything with merit in it. It's about as factual as Bush lied and People died.

Also I do remember her getting reamed for firing a Police Chief.
