Skip to comments.Sarah Palin-affiliated law firm made early-state deadline inquiries
Posted on 10/04/2011 10:34:57 AM PDT by Hawk720
Ken Vogel and I both have sources telling us that calls were made on behalf of a mystery candidate to various early states to determine presidential filing deadlines. Continue Reading
The calls were made by representatives of the law firm Baker Hostetler - a firm that employs lawyer Mark Braden, who represents Sarah PAC, her political action committee.
As Ken notes, while he nor representatives of Palins campaign would comment on the calls, Palin is the only GOP politician eying the presidential race who is represented by the firm.
It wouldnt be the first time that her representatives have sought information on the deadlines marking the ever-shifting GOP calendar.
The current thinking in GOP election law circles is that the first hard cut-off for entering the race is Oct. 28, when presidential candidates who hope to appear on the ballot in the New Hampshire primary would be required to submit a filing fee from a federally registered presidential campaign committee.

Saw what coming? The time is ripe for Palin to announce. A lot of media exposure today, her DVD comes out on the same day, and a lot of excitement surrounding her intentions.
Will she cancel her gigs in South Korea and jump into the mix? Or are we all going to go through this routine every other week or so?
Liar liar pants on fire.
It’s not that you objectively refer to her monetary prowess. It’s that it is always couched as the alternative motive for her actions, as though she is not motivated by her love of country or her respect for her supporters. It’s the motivational framework, not the talk of money, that irritates us.
You forgot Coulter, who endorsed Romney last night on Hannity’s show.
Well....like I said...this is going to be interesting! About that, there is certainty!
He was born in the United States. Even if your a birther with a pet theory, his father George was born in Mexico to U.S. citizen parents but under Mexican law of the day was not eligible for citizenship. George Romney was never anything except an American.
Silly wabbit. The Korean gig has long been part of the plan for “getting into the mix,” as you call it, and I have to say, in light if the timing, if this all works out, she will have demonstrated a capacity for anticipatory planning that is nothing short of astonishing.
The Korean gig is a paid speech by Sarah Palin. She can’t give a paid speech if she is an announced candidate. That’s why I don’t think she’ll announce until after that trip, if at all.
Since there's no tsunami, we assume you *didn't* find the real birth certificate?
As has been discussed before, Milt Romney IS NOT ELIGIBLE.
Just like Obama the Kenyan. Romney is Mexican-American
and not eligible because his family gave up their
US citizenship for polygamy.
Sorry. NO SALE on your bizarre ineligible RINO.
Ha! I thought about that more than a few times. I did see a man who looked suspiciously like Donald Trump sniffing around the Honolulu Court House, though...
No one here cares very much about Romney-phile Coulter
Coulter is a RINO. Loves the RINO. RINO.
Too bad. Fixable. Maybe.
I was told I 'begrudge' Sarah Palin making money. The multiple posts you linked do not give that impression at all. Thanks for doing the research to back up my view, FRiend. You saved me a lot of work! Now, will you retract calling me a liar, since in none of those posts do I begrudge Palin making money? Why do the fanatical Palin supporters get so defensive when someone points out that Palin is making a lot of money?
I’m just pointing out facts. Instead of announcing a candidacy, Sarah Palin is continuing her paid jobs in the private sector. It’s extremely relevant at this point, isn’t it? Plus, what is wrong if money is a motive for her words and her actions? Isn’t that the conservative/capitalist approach to economics?
She’s not doing the Korea gig for free, right?
And here I thought you were even more cynical than I. IMO, this story is as big a nothing as possible. It doesn’t say Braden was asked or even authorized to call. Any attorney worth his salt who represents a client who is considering a run would be calling to verify filing deadlines, especially given the shifting voting dates. He’d be a damned fool NOT to call directly to the offices in the various states that are charged with setting the deadlines and accepting petitions.
I am going to be so lost once she does announce, one way or the other. These threads bring back the wonderful, long ago memories of driving my kids around: “are too” “are not” are TOO” “are NOT.” They’re just a variant of a walk down memory lane!
“She cant give a paid speech if she is an announced candidate. “
Are you quite sure about that?
That made me laugh. I truly don’t know what to make of it. Could be something. Could be nothing. Clear as mud.
Interesting. Then the only thing keeping Sarah Palin from running is Sarah Palin. She can announce and still make money. Win/win!!
>> “Yep. Shes a bit like Paris Hilton in how she knows how to use her celebrity to advance her name and career.” <<
Palin can easily beat Romney in NH.
She drew thousands, while all Mitt drew was the MSM.
What a great American couple the Palins are. Each has accomplished so much individually, and look what they’ve built together. I can’t imagine the dark days of the campaign when their future was being attacked on all sides. Most families would have turned and run. This family has come back bigger, stronger, and more in your face than ever.
We need them.
When Carling get to smelling bad (IOW always) just remind him of this:
This is for you too:
I really like your tagline.
Are you just going to spam that link all over the board? I had a conversation with Jim. We also exchanged private messages. I get where he is coming from, and we actually had a decent conversation. I’m proud of that conversation.
Hey, side question. Is Rick Perry’s recent slide in the polls because Rupert Murdoch is paying to prop up Romney?
It can from one of Gov. Palin’s twitter messages.
The Korea gig is in Korea, how about that!
Candidates are not required to be unemployed.
You’ll be riding the zot soon.
Damn you’re stupid!
I believe Becky Beach of Iowa ( a known GOP fundraiser)has indicated her willingness to step forward if Palin asks. they have become friends and she was in AK earlier this month.
The Undefeated is not Palin’s movie it is Bannon’s. She did not make it , does not own it. The only reason for her to promote it is to get her true story out There. Now why would she bother doing that I wonder?
If nothing else on this thread...(which is actually not the case with me)...I just love your post!
Hmmm then explain to us how Huckabee and others made paid speeches when he was running before.
Whooo hoooo thanks for the ping.
As states try to one-up one another, best to double-check.
carling, I’m not sure whether Sarah is getting paid for the Korea speech or not. It’s a political-economic conference complete with lots of important people from around the world. Would they pay all those speakers? I think she is invited to speak about the American Economy as a representative of America. Obviously they believe that she is important enough to speak for her country.
I make no apology...I cannot stand Romney and if he is the nominee (gag me!), I will NOT be casting my vote for him. I’ll vote another candidate (except Obama, of course), or of there is no other, I will pass over voting for a POTUS candidate on my ballot...but for sure, I will not prostitute my vote for Romney. Period.
You're the liar, not me. And your pathetic posting history bears that out.
You're not going to be so proud when he finally zots your sorry hide.
Feel free to borrow this graphic at the proper time. MIZ (Multiple Independently Targetable ZOTs):
NICE! I luv MIRV zots.
I think I made my point.
Thanks for joining FR, Becky. Is Sarah Palin going to join the fray soon?
Could be a preemptive strike. By going after Random House in such a public way she could also be putting her soon to be detractors on notice.
It sounds like we will know by October 28th.
I was joking, good grief.
