Sarah Palin to resign as Alaska governor
Former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin announced today she is resigning as governor of Alaska.
Palin made the announcement during a press conference in Wasilla, Alaska. She said “We know we can affect positive change outside government at this point in time on another scale and actually make a difference for our priorities.”
“Many just accept that lame duck status and they hit the road. They draw a paycheck and they kind of milk it. I’m not going to put Alaskans through that. I promised efficiencies and effectiveness.”
Palin said she will resign in three weeks, a year-and-a-half before her term ends. Lieutenant Governor Sean Parnell will take her place July 26.
Although no one really no the true reason why she’s quitting, but I’m sure we will find out soon. Palin made history last year when she became the second female vice presidential candidate in history.
