Palin claims that all her appointees as governor ‘absolutely’ deserved the job.

Yesterday during an interview with a local Louisville, KY ABC affiliate, reporter Mark Herbert asked Sarah Palin about reports that she doled out political positions to friends, family and campaign donors. When Palin said the people she hired weren’t “cronies” or “politicos,” Herbert asked, “They weren’t politicos, they were just folks who deserved the job?” “Absolutely, yes,” Palin replied. Yet a recent Los Angeles Times examination of state records has shown otherwise:

The New York Times also reported last month that Palin appointed a high school classmate to a top position in the State Division of Agriculture who “cited her childhood love of cows as a qualification for running the roughly $2 million agency.”
