From Malia Litman's blog
Senator Susan Collins is a Republican, and the senior member of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security
and Governmental Affairs. That committee has jurisdiction over the
Department of Homeland Security and is the Senate’s Chief Oversight
Committee. She is the former chairman of the committee. Wanting to
ensure that she personally knew about the scandal involving Todd Palin
and Shailey Tripp, I contacted her office this morning. I was referred
to “Jake” who is one of the staff members assigned to cover the
investigation that will be the subject of the inquiry tomorrow. Jake
confirmed that Senator Collins already knew “all about” Shailey Tripp,
Todd Palin, and David Chaney. It must be that the officer who took a
statement from Shailey, as reported yesterday,
actually gave a complete report which was evidently circulated to
members of the committee. I am assuming this dissemination of
information took place because it is my impression that the office who
took the statement from Shailey Tripp did not work directly for Senator
Collins. A little later today, I will post a link to listen to the
hearing scheduled for tomorrow. and if the video becomes available, I’ll
post a link to that as well.
My conclusion is that we are no longer dependent on Joe Leiberman to
bring attention to this matter. It appears this story is now available
to all members of the Senate Committee. If there is nothing discussed
tomorrow about the culture of corruption in Alaska, it is because of an
attempt by the members of the committee to keep this information secret.
Responsibility will be shared, for better or worse, by all members of
Malia has been working diligently to expose the Palins for their misdeeds from the tax credit they got for their unreality show to Todd's prostitution ring. Her efforts are noble. I'm afraid though the Palins will skate on this one because they are like Teflon, nothing to them sticks. They got a slap on the wrist for Troopergate, Travelgate, AFT, and Taxgate. It's obvious Bristol keeps Tripp from Levi but the judges won't do anything.
Joe Lieberman may not like Sarah, he had to restrain her from coming after President Obama back in 2009.
However he is best friends with John McCain, and Sarah was his running mate. If Sarah is exposed, she will expose John. It's funny when Sarah ran for governor back in 2006 she promised to end the corruption in AK, but it's the corruption in DC that may save her ass.
Thank you Malia for everything you have done to expose the Palins! There is a special place for you in heaven.
