Carney confronted Mayor Palin at a City Council hearing, and was shocked by her response.
“I braced her about it,” he said. “I told her it was against the law to make such a large expenditure without the council taking a vote. She said, ‘I’m the mayor, I can do whatever I want until the courts tell me I can’t.'”
“I’ll never forget it — it’s one of the few times in my life I’ve been speechless,” Carney added. “It would have been easier for her to finesse it. She had the votes on the council by then, she controlled it. But she just pushed forward. That’s Sarah. She just has no respect for rules and regulations.”
This will somehow become yet another example of Sarah Palin being a Maverick, which means stubborn and willful to the point of illegality in this case. Doesn’t it remind you of “If the President does it, it isn’t a crime”? If the people who were so enamored, but now are not so in Love with their BFF Bushie Junior, cannnot see the same arc here that was in place with Dubya, they really do need their heads examined.
