Palin hired lobbyist to pursue earmarks!

Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin and her supporters continue to claim she opposed the Bridge to Nowhere when in fact she supported it until it was on its deathbed.

She and John McCain claim she opposed "earmarks" when the truth is as Mayor she hired lobbyists to pursue them even as Joe Klein reports Alaska's oil revenues and federal deficits were soaring.

Palin sought $197 million in so-called "earmarks" for 2009. In the previous budget year, she asked for earmarks worth $256 million.

She claims she sold a state plane on eBay, for a profit. Neither claim is true.

The McCain Palin campaign is the most dishonest in recent memory as the attached CNN report makes clear.
