Blind Allegiance Revisited – New Sarah Palin Bombshells from the Cutting Room Floor

In February of this year, there was a deliberate and unauthorized leak of the draft manuscript of the book Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin (Frank Bailey with coauthors Ken Morris and Jeanne Devon). Rival Palin author Joe McGinniss obtained through his publisher a copy of the copyrighted manuscript and emailed it in its entirety to a host of media outlets inviting them to read and comment on the contents. The book, in first draft, was seeking a publisher at the time. Within days, the revelations shocked and amazed the media and public, making their way around the internet universe while…

New Emails Reveal Palin Lied When She Denied Online Poll Fixing

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy During Sarah Palin’s brief tenure as governor, staff spent a great deal of time repeatedly voting in online polls. They even used special software that would vote over and over in these non-scientific opinion polls from local TV stations like KTUU in Anchorage. For Palin, it was all about the image. If her policies looked popular, then in her world, they were. If she looked like a success, she was. Her all-consuming obsession with her own media presence was undeniable in the emails I read while researching the…

Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin – Some Insight and an Excerpt!

By Co-Author: Ken Morris Despite being filled with regret for his own actions while serving for nearly four years under candidate and then half-governor Sarah Palin, Frank Bailey came to fear that his former boss remained a voice in American politics. In Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin, former insider and my co-author Frank Bailey said of his ideals when we first met, “I am still a Fox News Conservative.” Frank went on to explain that Sarah Palin, despite her carefully managed image and “word salad” lip service to conservative ideals, cared little for the smaller government and social values that…

Mudflats Chats – Frank Bailey

~Sarah Palin and Frank Bailey By Jeanne Devon I had the opportunity to sit down and talk with ex-Palin aide Frank Bailey about his memoir Blind Allegiance (co-authored by myself and Ken Morris).  Frank Bailey is one of those people I never imagined I’d ever meet, nevermind work with. I once called him “the second most notorious Frank in Alaska politics” with our former Governor Frank Murkowski holding that dubious number one spot. After Bailey ended up in the center of the Troopergate scandal, I, like many Alaskans was pretty miffed. After our mutual co-author Ken Morris who was already…

Follow Frank! Palin Tell-All Author Talks to Martin Bashir

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy Frank Bailey discusses Christian faith as a theme in Blind Allegiance, in his own life, and in the Palin administration. Quoting from the book Bashir reads – Love thy neighbor? Turn the other cheek? Forgiveness? These New Testament concepts were not part of Sarah Palin’s Old Testament temperament. Both eyes for an eye was the rule, and vanquishing enemies became a goal. Bailey goes on to discuss how much of the book is a confession for the things he was involved with, and how he strayed from his…
