For years Sarah Palin collected thousands of dollars through donations to her PAC. She used the PAC money to finance her extravagant life style. In fact Slate reported that Palin spent more money from her PAC on travel and hotels than on political candidates. As funds and donations dried up Palin closed her PAC by the end of 2016.
Palin endorsed Donald Trump and campaigned for him whenever it was determined Alaska wasn’t too far from the campaign trail. Trump indicated that Palin would definitely be considered for a place in his administration if he won. After the election Palin indicated she’d be interested in serving in the Trump administration.
Whether because of her taste in tableshirts,
or her consistently ignorant remarks, Sarah Palin has become irrelevant. She hasn’t gendrated donations of any size, and doesn’t hold any political position,or even a job. She is at least a 5 times Grandma, four of whom were conceived out of wedlock. Todd is no longer a champion of the Iron Dog, and it is questionable if he’s even able to make money as pimp any longer. Sarah is no longer working in politics, Fox News, or as a host on any reality show. She “wrote” three books, but isn’t even promoting a new book now. Thus it seems the best way she knows how to make money now is filing suit.
Palin has filed suit against the NY Times for defamation. This is obviously different than the time McCain threatened to sue the National Enquirer for defamation arising from the story that Palin had an affair.
The original editorial is no longer available on the internet. It seems unlikely that Palin could prevail. It seems even more unlikely that she could show how this editorial could have caused her to suffer any harm.
Her reputation was ruined when she quit her job as Governor. Her reputation was ruined when it was revealed that Todd was a pimp.
Her reputation was ruined when she was involved in the family brawl.
Her reputation was ruined when she excused Track’s domestic violence on PTSD when he never served in a combat role.
I predict that Palin will try to turn this suit into another book. Now that she no longer has a podium from which to attack politicians, she is now playing the victim, and this lawsuit is just the latest attempt on her part to play the victim.
