It seems that as a mayor in Alaska, Palin ruffled quite a few feathers.
From this article:
also;...Ms. Palin approached the town librarian about the possibility of banning some books...
Anne Kilkenny, a Democrat who said she attended every City Council meeting in Ms. Palin’s first year in office, said Ms. Palin brought up the idea of banning some books at one meeting. “They were somehow morally or socially objectionable to her,” Ms. Kilkenny said.
The librarian, Mary Ellen Emmons, pledged to “resist all efforts at censorship,” Ms. Kilkenny recalled. Ms. Palin fired Ms. Emmons shortly after taking office but changed course after residents made a strong show of support. Ms. Emmons, who left her job and Wasilla a couple of years later, declined to comment for this article.
That scares the shit out of me, and I don't live in America... aside from her being anti-contraception and wanting to push creationism into classrooms, also. :0Ms. Palin also upended the town’s traditional ways with a surprise edict: No employee was to talk to the news media without her permission.
