Todd Palin Confirms Angry Emails

Todd Palin confirms he sent angry emails about Tea Party favorite Joe Miller after the Republican senate candidate did not offer a full-throated endorsement of Sarah Palin’s presidential credentials in a TV interview. Miller’s surprising victory in the GOP primary against incumbent Lisa Murkowski was widely credited to Palin, who mentioned his name in tweets and speeches. Todd Palin sent an email to Miller, Palin’s attorney Thomas Van Flein, and SarahPAC Treasurer Tim Crawford saying, “Sarah put her ass on the line for Joe and yet he can’t answer a simple question ‘Is Sarah Palin qualified to be president.’ I DON’T KNOW IF SHE IS.” Miller reportedly responded on September 22, writing, “this is what we’re dealing with … Holy cow.” Palin says the emails resulted from a misunderstanding and criticized the press for publishing private messages.
