Sarah Palin Tries to Paddle Away from Convicted Senator Ted Stevens as Fast As She Can

Saw today that Palin and McCain are calling on Stevens to stop down out of the race. Heh. Yeah, like it's going to work to try to put themselves on the OPPOSITE side of that.

Now why might she do that? Was it because her own campaign sought the endorsement of Ted Stevens?

(Of course, she did try, without success, to scrub that ad from her website. Ooops.)

And Ooops, let's not forget that she was a director of ...... Sen Ted Steven's 527 group.

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin began building clout in her state's political circles in part by serving as a director of an independent political group organized by the now embattled Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens.

Palin's name is listed on 2003 incorporation papers of the "Ted Stevens Excellence in Public Service, Inc.," a 527 group that could raise unlimited funds from corporate donors. The group was designed to serve as a political boot camp for Republican women in the state. She served as one of three directors until June 2005, when her name was replaced on state filings.

...
Palin, an anti-corruption crusader in Alaska, had called on Stevens to be open about the issues behind the investigation. But she also held a joint news conference with him in July, before he was indicted, to make clear she had not abandoned him politically.

Course now that he's been CONVICTED, she's abandoning him.

Stevens had been helpful to Palin during her run for governor, swooping in with a last moment endorsement. And the two filmed a campaign commercial together to highlight Stevens's endorsement of Palin during the 2006 race.

Shortly after Palin was announced as McCain's vice presidential pick, the ad was removed from her gubernatorial campaign web site. It remains available on YouTube.
