I'm sure that by now, many of you are aware of the unfounded accusations against Gov. Palin being circulated by former gubernatorial candidate Andrew Halcro. While I am confident that these accusations will be fully refuted (and are imploding even as I write this), I will be withholding comment until morning in the interest of providing a thorough and detailed response. In the meantime, I will direct you to the official response issued by Gov. Palin and call on Mr. Halcro to stop refusing interview requests from the media.
Now, regarding my comments section, I have a few housekeeping notes as a result of what I have been reading. First, for the time being, anti-Palin comments will be deleted. My first obligation is to my supporters, and I will not allow them to be harassed. This is a campaign site, not an open forum, and there are plenty of other places where you can make your voice heard. To my supporters, I would ask that you also keep your comments tasteful and respectful (i.e. no name calling, mudslinging, etc.). I have no desire to see any brawling in the comments section, and I will delete anything that I find to be overly antagonistic, regardless of who posts it. This is obviously a very sensitive issue, and I must take precautions to insure the integrity of this site.
Please feel to continue discussing how we can support Gov. Palin, and I'll be back in the morning with a full update.
