ANCHORAGE, Alaska: Organizers of an event in Anchorage have been advertising to the public that former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin would be giving a speech that night and would also become the first signer of a ballot petition the event is supporting.

The problem is, the former Vice Presidential candidate won’t even be in attendance. According to Palin’s spokesperson, Palin didn’t even give confirmation to her appearance at the event nor did they even receive an invitation, stating: “…this is the first we have ever heard of a speech.”

The Alaska Family Council are the organizers of the fundraiser, which is supporting a statewide ballot measure that would make abortion for teens illegal without telling their parents.[1]
