Palin Fought Against Ted Stevens? Lie.

There sure are a remarkable number of lies emerging in the first few days since Sarah Palin was chosen as McCain's VP. One talking point lie they're continuing to spread is that she was a staunch opponent of recently indicted Alaska Senator Ted Stevens. As it turns out, she was a director of his 527 political fundraising organization!

Palin's name is listed on 2003 incorporation papers of the "Ted Stevens Excellence in Public Service, Inc.," a 527 group that could raise unlimited funds from corporate donors. The group was designed to serve as a political boot camp for Republican women in the state. She served as one of three directors until June 2005, when her name was replaced on state filings.

Add this to the proven lie that she opposed the "Bridge to Nowhere", the absurd falsehood that being close to Russia gives her foreign policy experience, and her continued, proven mendaciousness with respect to the illegitimate firing of Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan and you are starting to get a picture of a two Republican polticians with little regard for the truth.
