Palin Aides Kept Scrambling

Questions About Tanning Bed in Governor's Mansion -- Sends Aides Scrambling

By RHONDA SCHWARTZ

Sept. 16, 2008

"It's vetting gone haywire," said Gov. Sarah Palin's beleaguered press secretary, Bill McAllister, as he dealt with a new round of questions about the governor -- this time about a tanning bed installed in the governor's mansion in Juneau.

In the 2 weeks since Palin was named to the GOP ticket, McAllister's phone has been ringing off the hook from national reporters who have descended on the state to look into the background of the governor.

Monday, US Weekly and a blog, NarcoNews, reported that "the former beauty queen's penchant for a bronzed body" led to the installation of a "private tanning bed" shortly after she took office.

"She paid for it herself," said McAllister from his Anchorage office. He told ABC News he had "no idea" why she had installed the machine but confirmed it was installed in the mansion.

An online search showed tanning beds for sale at a wide range of prices, starting at around $1,000 and going as high as $35,000. McAllister said he did not know what Palin had paid for her tanning bed.

Odd as it may seem, this belongs in Election 08.

Oh man, this might be it. I'm seriously thinking of voting third party now. You did well LP. Doesn't she know that the only way to "really" prevent sunburn, is to abstain from lying in a tanning bed in the first place?

I'm never running for office unless as a LIBERAL.
I could never get past the fact that I have a mountain bike and treadmill installed in my government house. :eek:The horror!:eek: Sources reveal that these items can range in price from a few hundred dollars to $8,000,00. :rolleyes:
