Sarah Palin-affiliated law firm made early-state deadline inquiries
Politico ^ | 10/04/2011 | Maggie Haberman

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 Palin’s campaign would comment on the calls, Palin is the only GOP politician eying the presidential race who is represented by the firm.

It wouldn’t 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.

So, what are the cut-off dates for SC Primary (Jan. 21, 2012) and FL Primary (Jan. 31, 2012)? Anybody know?

I was in Hawaii for five days. Since there wasn’t a tsunami, I’ll assume that Palin is still sitting on the sidelines?

if she is not running, I must say I have to admire the level of detail with which she is executing her plan to keep the little minions of the MSM running around like headless chickens

“When you want to move forward, you’re gonna piss people off, but Sarah doesn’t care.”

Pissing off the very people you need to have vote for you isn't exactly a winning campaign strategy. I've been gone for almost a week, and it's the same old tired theme of Palin stringing along her devotees. What will next week's hint be? Will she wear a red, white, and blue ribbon in her hair while on Greta?

“But Sarah Palin’s worst enemy is not the mincing liberal betaboy, oh no. It’s the childless, career-tracked, urban slut machine, government-as-daddy-and-husband-substitute, spinsterette. Palin sh*ts grizzly-sized dung all over that lifestyle with her outdoorsiness, large brood, and prole tastes. The thing about her they really can’t swallow are her FIVE kids.

There’s no better way to remind a hip clubgoing single chick in the city who loves to travel and sip pinot noir of her impending infertility and genetic obsolescence than with the image of a woman who’s chosen not to ignore her biological imperative in favor of playing the field indefinitely.

Palin makes blue state SWPLs nervous because she is the chill up their spines that they are being outbred into insignificance.”

Oh yeah, it’s all part of her “big tease”—to have her attorneys call the various state offices about this.

She would be wise to miss the NH deadline if that one is first. Nobody will beat Romney there, but if she doesn’t “lose”, his victory is neutered a bit. If she won Iowa and no contested NH, she would be in better position to win SC than if she lost NH.

Palin is sending legal notices to Random House that threaten to sue, she has attornies sniffing around state election offices ... is her campaign going to be sponsored by the American Bar Association?

She did make a lot of lawyers a lot of money in Alaska.

So, what Todd is saying is that Sarah isn’t a barracuda or a mama grizzly, she’s a honey badger.

I’m OK with that.

A serious candidate wouldn’t ponder if he/she could impact more change in America as President, or as a paid speaker/media member/book pusher.

Boy - talk about your “crony capitalism”. Getting her picture taken with her husband, who is wearing a TESORO jacket! What a hypocrite.

(I think one of her many lawsuits WAS for her wearing a jacket with a logo on it! Palin won, just like all the other silly lawsuits.)

Yes a serous candidate would already know that, but a candidate who would want to make sure the max number of people are standing by, holding their collective breaths, would have someone make some ‘unnecessary’ phone calls. You betcha. It is all over Twitter and FB. Palin said that when she has an announcement to make, we won't miss it. Not if all eyes are on Sarah. lol, love it.
