Sarah Palin on Ted Stevens: ‘What a horrible thing he has endured.’

Gov. Sarah Palin today released the following statement in response to the dismissal of the indictment against former U.S. senator Ted Stevens:

Senator Stevens deserves to be very happy today.  What a horrible thing he has endured.  The blatant attempts by adversaries to destroy one’s reputation, career and finances are an abuse of our well-guarded process and violate our God-given rights afforded in the Constitution.  It is a frightening thing to contemplate what we may be witnessing here – the undermining of the political process through unscrupulous ploys and professional misconduct.  Senator Stevens and I had lunch together recently at my home and he reiterated the faith he held for vindication; he never gave up hope.  It is unfortunate that, as a result of the questionable proceedings which led to Senator Stevens’ conviction days before the election, Alaskans lost an esteemed statesman on Capitol Hill.  His presence is missed.

Somehow I get the feeling that “blatant attempts by adversaries to destroy one’s reputation, career and finances” have been on Palin’s mind lately.
