This photographer needs to sue Sarah Palin

From Salt Lake Tribune

Sarah Palin has done it again.

I wrote in 2009 about the former Republican vice presidential candidate's visit to Salt Lake City for a book signing at Costco when her team solicited an area beautician to do her hair for the event.

The woman went to Hotel Monaco in downtown Salt Lake City and, as instructed, left her car with the valet. She was taken to Palin's room and did her hair while the politician conversed with her family.

When finished, the beautician was putting her equipment away and suddenly realized everyone had left. She took the elevator to the lobby and saw Palin's party driving away.

Nobody paid her. Even worse, when she told the valet she was with the Palin party, he said nobody told him, so she had to fork over the $10 out of her own pocket.

Now, Palin is using a North Salt Lake photographer's copyright picture of a grizzly chasing a wolf in Yellowstone National Park on her Facebook page without crediting him.

Rob Daugherty, a wildlife photographer and tour guide, took the stunning photo Aug. 5, 2010. The image has been posted extensively on the Internet. Daugherty says when his credit line is missing and he informs the the Web venues that it's a copyright photo, they either take it down or add his credit line.

But earlier this week, when he pointed out that Palin's Facebook page had failed to credit him, Palin ignored him.

Instead, several of Palin's Facebook friends derided Daugherty for being petty and praised the former Alaska governor for loving America so much.

I checked on Sarah's Fecebook page and that picture is gone!  Guess she doesn't want to get sued again.  I think Rob should anyway.


  1. Sarah and her family are a bunch of freeloaders, we all remember how they selfishly spent nearly $200,000 on expensive clothing by using the campaign's money in the early days of the economic crisis of 2008.

    1. We also remember how they rampaged backstage and scooped up all the swag bags at a Hollywood event.

    2. $200,000? lol This is what was told to Newsweek when they were still trying to protect Palin:

      "One aide estimated that she spent "tens of thousands" more than the reported $150,000, and that $20,000 to $40,000 went to buy clothes for her husband. Some articles of clothing have apparently been lost. An angry aide characterized the shopping spree as "Wasilla hillbillies looting Neiman Marcus from coast to coast," and said the truth will eventually come out when the Republican Party audits its books."

      The truth is so bad it's leaked out in little bits, lest conservatives demand blood. This decision was based on how horrified the campaign aides felt over this issue after the election. Sarah was literally "stealing from the campaign." We have already been told: "Over $500,000, even over $750,000."

    3. But, but, but... $he gave it all back, didn't $he? ( /snark)

  2. Sarah loves America so much that it makes her steal other people's work and not even say thank you?

    Her fans are truly warped, I pray I never meet any of them.

  3. Typical $arah.

    No regard for anything or anyone else, except for "what's in it for me".

    Using photos, using people, all the same to a sociopathic idiot.

    Every day I look for the news to break on $arah, just like it did for Josh Duggar.

    The horrific crimes and scandals that Palin has been hiding will come out, and she will be shamed, and even more infamous that $he is now.


  4. Someone on IM said that Mr. Daugherty replied on her Facebook post that she needed to take it off and the moderator kept deleting his posts? What utter and complete assholes she has working for her. Did they take down the "orange is the new black" Hillary meme as well?

    My contempt for that bitch knows no bounds. Christian, my ass.

    "...several of Palin's Facebook friends derided Daugherty for being petty and praised the former Alaska governor for loving America so much."

    Several years ago several HUNDRED of Palin's FB friends would have BULLIED Daugherty into publicly apologizing. They would have threatened to put him out of business if he did not allow Sarah to steal from him.

    I wonder if that Utah hairdresser ever got paid? Probably not. I hope Willow gets stiffed in a similar manner one day via Karmic retribution.
