The Palin aide tells ABC News that in “recent days,” Palin told Trump transition officials: “I feel as though the megaphone I have been provided can be used in a productive and positive way to help those desperately in need.”
The VA is the largest government agency with over 300,000 federal employees and a budget of $182 billion for 2017.
Palin’s son-in-law, Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer, posted a SarahPAC video to his Facebook page earlier this week that heavily focuses on her work with veterans and her specific connection to the community. Her eldest son, Track, is a veteran who served in Iraq in 2008. The video, which is not new, seems to clearly show her interest in the position, and in the speech, she hits the VA “bureaucracy,” saying it is “killing our vets.”
She had a son in the Army, Her son-in-law won the Medal of Honor in Afghanistan. He knocked up Palin’s daughter, Bristol, got engaged, called off the wedding, sued for custody of the child, settled the case, and he married Bristol last June.
Are we saying these are her qualifications for running the Department of Veterans Affairs?
She thought being Governor of Alaska was too hard? Just wait.
