As the election draws near, in Governor Palins home state of Alaska the report on abuse of power by the governors office is released. The Alaska legislative investigation finds that Palin violated state laws and abused her power by trying to have her former brother-in-law fired as a state trooper. Public office is no place to conduct a personal vendetta against anyone. Once again I see reason why I feel that Palin is not ready to be Vice President, and heaven forbid, President. Even more disturbing than her?unlawful acts and abuse of power while in office is the fact that her husband Todd was leading the way in the attempt to get his ex brother in law fired. Gov. Palin knowingly “permitted Todd to use the Governor’s office and the resources of the Governor’s office, including access to state employees, to continue to contact subordinate state employees in an effort to find some way to get Trooper Wooten fired. If she is elected will he be running things in the background of her office? Using her power to conduct his own agenda while using her office to empower him? I did not think that she was ready to be President and that is the criteria that we need to think of when voting as she will be a mere moment away from being President. This only reinforces my feelings that she is not ready for the office of Vice President. The only good thing about her running for office is the hilarious skits performed on Saturday Night Live depicting her. Whats bad though is Tina Fay merely had to use the governors own words to get laughs from the audience. Its sad McCain picked such as her for his running mate. He might have made a good President but I certainly can not vote for him because of her.
