The verdict on Sarah Palin is in. She abused her position.
This is proof that she was John McCain's perfect running mate.
McCain understands the abuse of power. His aide, Chris Paul, intervened for McCain's friends, ViaGlobal's Frank Gren and Chuck Larsen. Paul was unsuccessful in obtaining a lucrative FBI contract, but he did succeed in temporarily derailing an internal FBI investigation.
In 2004, some FBI managers determined that the relationship between certain FBI employees and Rosetta Research and Consulting was improper. Rosetta, under the direction of Paul Wolfowitz and Donald Rumsfeld, hijacked millions of investor dollars.
The company was set up to pursue commercial ventures in risk management. Wolfowitz and Rumsfeld subverted it into a private, unprofitable, intelligence service.
McCain did the bidding of Wolfowitz and Rumsfeld when Rosetta had trouble with the FBI. Paul's influence seems to have waned, as a full scale investigation was conducted in 2006, and disciplinary action was taken against FBI employees as a result.
A McCain-Palin administration would not only ruinous for the economy, but it would also further the objectives of Wolfowitz and Rumsfeld using a tool they, and their potential financier, Dickie Scruggs, understand well: corruption.
