This isn’t only about Perry, as you pointed out Palin has had disgusting charges leveled against her. There is always some piece of scum who will say whatever Flynt wants for $1 million. Our candidates should be vetted but I wouldn’t trust anything said about any of them when the accuser has been paid.
If there is dirt in his background, guaranteed it will be found. I hope he’s clean. Palin is clean, so they’ve had to make up crap. And they can’t make up much.
Sarah Palin was vetted by a very "pro" DC lawyer who specializes in these kinds of character and background issues, at John McCain's request, in 2008.
