Fact: Palin did inquire about banning books
FACT: Palin fired the Librarian a few weeks later after that librarian stood up in that council meeting and said that she would be completely opposed to removing any books from the library.
FACT: There was a public uproar among the citizens of that small town and Palin had to rehire the librarian
The McCain campaign is trying to gloss over this story by saying she did not actually ban any books. Of course she didn't the public prevented it. What is concerning is that she tried to do it at all.
Censorship, Banning books, Firing public officials that stand up for Constitutional Rights. What an American idol Sarah Palin is indeed.
