But what makes this political is the rumor that Sarah Palin (the former governor) intervened with state troopers to get her daughter cleared while others were charged.
(And if you want to read something really nasty, take a look at the National Enquirer piece that skips through the booze, sex, and drugs of her three oldest children.)
All rumor, but ugly.
She's never going to be President.
(And, yes. If you run as a morals/"family values" politician, how you raise your kids is pertinent.)
