Governor Sarah Palin prepares to sign two bills into law â€“ SB 214 and HB 326 â€“ which will benefit Alaska Guard members.
The Politico has the OPPOSITION RESEARCH file
and it is here (pdf file warning).
And Erick Erickson has perused the file
and discovered among other things that the Democrats have revealed Governor Palins social security number (less the last four digits), telephone numbers and her various home and business addresses. Flap directs you to page 60 of the file. It now appears that the complete social security number has been redacted.
But, when? Apparently after Politico received the file and a complaint was raised.
In the file, the Democrats have released Sarah Palin’s social security number minus the last four digits. Also tied to the information are her various home addresses.
Back in 2005, Democrats used Michael Steele’s social security number to get his credit record.
It is atrocious that the Democrats would not only seek out Sarah Palin’s social security number, but release it in opposition research to the press.
We need to know who did this. We also need to know what happened. We also need to know if it was used to bolster the Democrats’ opposition research.
When it happened to Michael Steele, it turns out the Democrats knew about it and did nothing.
The Democrats are a REAL CLASS act.
Is this not a social security privacy act violation and against federal or Alaska state law?
And, what in the hell are they doing with Sarah Palin’s social security number in the first place? There should and will be an investigation.

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin had no public events today but she had quite a private one.
In the photo above, Laura Bush and Cindy McCain pay a visit today on Governor Sarah Palin in Minneapolis.
And, Fred Thompson’s speech tonight will defend the selection of Sarah Palin as John McCain’s Vice Presidential running mate.
“What a breath of fresh air Governor Sarah Palin is. She is from a small town, with small town values, but that’s not good enough for those folks who are attacking her and her family. Let’s be clear, the selection of Governor Palin has the other side and their friends in the media in a state of panic. She is a courageous, successful, reformer, who is not afraid to take on the establishment.”
Anyone want to bet whether the Governor puts in an appearance at the Republican National Convention this evening?

GOP Attorney Michael Tenenbaum with former Chairwoman, Leslie Cornejo of the Ventura County Republican Central Committee
GOP Attorney and twice defeated California 24th Congressional District candidate Michael Tenenbaum has been confirmed as eligible
to represent District 6 on the State Bar Board of Governors, seven weeks after winning election.
While the ballots in that election were canvassed July 10, certification of the results was delayed because of what officials said were questions about where the winner actually practiced law.
Only 19 percent of the districtâ€™s attorneys participated in the balloting. Redlands attorney Bryan Hartnell, who was supported by all the major bar associations in the district, lost by 118 votes, while Riverside attorney A. Benjamin Aames came in third.
District 6 encompasses the Inland Empire counties of San Bernardino and Riverside, as well as the coastal counties of San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura.State Bar rules require that a governorâ€™s principal place of practice be located within the district that governor represents. When questions were raised about Tenenbaumâ€™s law practice address â€“ which is a mail receiving service â€“ the State Bar launched an investigation.
Tenenbaum has maintained that he practices from his Thousand Oaks home, and a committee appointed at the direction of the Bar of Governors has now accepted that assertion.
As Flap said before, if Tenenbaum could substantiate that he worked at home, despite his mailing address being a “The Mail Shop” he was good to go. And, he has.
Michael Tenenbaum will assume his seat on the California State Bar’s Board of Governors on September 27th.
Incoming State Bar President Holly Fujie welcomed Tenenbaum to the board in a press statement issued Friday.
â€œI am looking forward to a substantive and hardworking year with this board,â€ she said, â€œand Mr. Tenenbaum will make an important contribution to this on behalf of his District Six constituents.â€
The State Barâ€™s decision came one day after Tenenbaum had filed suit in Los Angeles County Superior Court, asking that his election be certified. In his own press statement, Tenenbaum said he would now dismiss the suit.
He also noted that the seven weeks it took the State Bar to certify him was longer than it took the Palm Beach, Fla., canvassing board, the Florida Supreme Court and the U.S. Supreme Court to certify George W. Bush as the winner of the 2000 presidential election.
â€œThatâ€™s unfortunate not only for the lawyers in this state whose dues were wasted on an unnecessary bureaucratic process,â€ he said, â€œbut also for the citizens of California who expect the Bar to use its resources more judiciously.â€

US Republican presidential candidate Senator John McCain (R-AZ) and his running mate Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, August 29, 2008
Democrats have been relentless in their belittling
of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin:
- Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL): â€œWell, my understanding is that Governor Palin’s town of Wasilla has I think 50 employees. We’ve got 2,500 in this campaign. I think their budget is maybe $12 million a year. You know, we have a budget of about three times that just for the month. So I think that our ability to manage large systems and to execute I think has been made clear over the last couple of years.â€ (CNNâ€™s â€œ360 With Anderson Cooper,â€ 9/1/08). Update: The Video of Obama’s comment is here.
- Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH): â€œSheâ€™s been mayor of a city half the size of Blue Ash and governor of a state with half the population of Hamilton County. â€¦ John McCain failed in his first big decision as a potential president. He chose somebody with no experience to be a heartbeat away from being the U.S. president.â€ (Steve Kemme, â€œAt Picnic, Brown Slams Palin,â€ The Cincinnati Enquirer, 9/2/08)
- Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE): Biden On Palin: â€œShe’s Good Looking.â€ â€œâ€˜From our perspective the whole deal is how does the government help you get back up without getting in the way?â€™ Biden asked. â€˜There’s a gigantic – gigantic — difference between John McCain and Barack Obama, and between me and I suspect my vice presidential opponent. And that is that â€“â€™ The crowd laughed. â€˜Well there’s obvious differences,â€™ Biden said, beginning to ham it up. â€˜She’s good looking,â€™ he said, laughing.â€ (Jake Tapper, â€œOh, That Joe! (Number 4 In A Series) — Biden On Difference Between Him And Palin: â€˜She’s Good Looking,â€™â€ ABC Newsâ€™ â€œPolitical Punchâ€ Blog, blogs.abcnews.com, 8/31/08)
Would you call this belittling or patronizing? This belittlement of Sarah Palin is reminiscent of Obama and his campaign attacks on Hillary Clinton which pissed off a goodly number of Democrat women voters.
Team McCain responds:
RNC Victory 2008 Chair Carly Fiorina released the following statement today in response to Democrat attacks on Governor Sarah Palin:
â€œI am appalled by the Obama campaign’s attempts to belittle Governor Sarah Palinâ€™s experience. The facts are that Sarah Palin has made more executive decisions as a Mayor and Governor than Barack Obama has made in his life. Because of Hillary Clinton’s historic run for the Presidency and the treatment she received, American women are more highly tuned than ever to recognize and decry sexism in all its forms. They will not tolerate sexist treatment of Governor Palin.â€
Sexism and patronizing women = Barack Obama and his campaign for the Presidency.
