Earlier this week on MSNBC, McCain campaign flack Tucker Bounds said that if John McCain and Sarah Palin were Alaska voters, they would not vote for Sen. Ted Stevens (R-AK) — who was recently convicted on seven felony counts. But as First Read noted, Palin is an Alaska voter. However, yesterday during an interview with a local Toledo, OH CBS affiliate, Palin declined to answer when asked if she would vote for Stevens:

Q: So will you cast your ballot for Ted Stevens and are you encouraging others to do so? [...]

PALIN: I’ve never told people who I have voted for before because I see that as a very precious freedom in our country. Free and fair and uh – elections allow us to cast a secret ballot behind the voting booth curtain so that’s the way I’m going to keep it.

Watch it:

When First Read e-mailed Bounds to inform him that Palin will indeed be voting in Alaska, Bounds replied: “She called for him to step down in an interview this morning. I think I’m safe.”
