Some of you would know that I’ve been involved with AKMuckraker and The Mudflats since September, 2008. We’ve been through a lot in the past few years, many stressful situations which we have worked through together as well as the rest of The Mudflats Admin & Moderation team. I consider her to be a good friend.
AKMuckraker (Jeanne Devon) and her good friends Ken Morris and Frank Bailey (A former aide to Governor Palin) have collaborated together on a book. It was released yesterday in the USA.
Also released yesterday were several “tweets” from Rebecca Mansour, a current aide of Sarah Palin.
What a top aide to Sarah Palin really thinks about Mitt Romney, Bristol Palin, Erick Erickson and more
Though whether she is still an aide remains to be seen – Palin has a habit of throwing people under the bus for much less than Mansour is guilty of.
During the time I have worked with AKMuckraker, there have been times when she has shared confidences with me. Never in a million years would I think to share those with anyone else, not even the admin & mod team, without her express permission. Certainly not with someone I’ve never met whether or not I trusted them.
When someone tells me something and tells me to keep it in the vault, with me, it is LOCKED IN THAT DARNED VAULT and it isn’t coming out until that person tells me otherwise.
Mansour betrayed Sarah and her family, and thoroughly deserves to be thrown under the bus. When someone trusts you and allows you to be a part of their “inner circle” you have a responsibility to keep your mouth firmly zipped..
Even worse – if this is what she was saying to someone she never met, what the heck is she saying to people she knows?
Apparently the person who was tweeting with her had 122 tweets from her which he was willing to sell. The people he ended up giving them to (nobody would buy them) have not shared all of them but you can view the ones they did share here and here.
My personal favourites with the irony in bold –
19:23:35: Listen: I tell you things I wouldn’t tell anyone tho I have press hounding me for the info I tell you. I trust you even tho I’ve never met u
19:28:55: Nothing we can do when someone behaves stupidly.
Ain’t that the truth!
One thought on “Keeping Confidences.”
It’s sad how hard it is to find someone you can trust in this day and age (maybe it’s always been that way, I don’t know?). And with the internet, stuff can go viral so quickly. :(
