Sarah Palin, safety seats and the usual hypocrisy...
In a statement to Thomas Van Flein during the Troopergate fiasco, Todd Palin suggested there was bad blood between the governor and Monegan over a couple of matters. This was one of them:
• An inquiry from Monegan to the governor about whether she once failed to put her Trig, her infant, in a car seat while she was driving.
On the car seat, Monegan sent an e-mail to the governor on June 30, 12 days before he lost his job, that said: "Via a soon-to-be-retiring legislator, we received a complaint that had you driving with Trig not in an approved car seat; if this is so that would be awkward in many ways."
The governor fired back from her private e-mail account: "I've never driven Trig anywhere without a new, approved car seat. I want to know who said otherwise -- pls provide me that info now." (please note the menacing, demanding tone)
Todd Palin, in his sworn statement, said this was a "false rumor," and that the governor was a passenger in a truck, "on a private farm road without traffic at low speed." (with Trig on her lap)
Sarah Palin's twit today:
I join Auto Dealers today for kids' safety seat law/promo. NOTHING more important than safety of our babies: Life's most precious ingredient
