Palin Denies Book Banning


Remember how multiple source said Republican presidential candidate Sarah Palin inquired about banning gay-themed books while mayor of Wasilla, Alaska? Funny, because she doesn’t.

From an interview with Alaska paper the Frontiersman:

As people there know, all questions posed to the library director were asked in a context of professionalism, regarding the library policy that was in place. Before I became mayor, there was conversation in our community about what sorts of books were appropriate for the public library. I asked the librarian about the process for answering that question as a way to familiarize myself with city staff and the issues being discussed in Wasilla at that time. I certainly never advocated banning books.

You may not have endorsed such behavior, Sarah, but we’re sure the thought crossed your little mind.
