Alaska Democrat gets payback job for hack attack on Palin

Alaska State Sen. Kim Elton is getting a cushy job in the Interior Department. He was a leader of the attack on Sarah Palin during the 2008 campaign. This smells like a possible "quid pro quo" payback from the Obama Administration. The truth may never be known. Governor Palin took the news with her traditional level of class and wished him well.

(CNN) – Alaska State Sen. Kim Elton, one of the leading officials to pursue an investigation of Gov. Sarah Palin during the heat of the presidential campaign, has taken a high-level job in the Interior Department.

Palin reacted in a short statement Monday, the day Elton announced his move to Washington.

“Senator Elton pledged his allegiance to President Obama last summer,” said the governor. “We wish him well as he moves on and hope that he uses this job for Alaska’s benefit.”
