Palin, who abused her own power as governor, says McCain will end ‘abuses of power’ in Washington

Well isn't that rich? Anyone else notice the GOP ticket's other historic first? First ticket in history with BOTH candidates previously guilty of ethics violations. How mavericky.

On Saturday, one day after Gov. Sarah Palin was cited by an official state investigation for unethically and unlawfully abusing her power, Sen. John McCain said he would end “abuses [of power]” in Washington as More..president. In another bout of irony, Palin today echoed McCain:

See as a senator, John has confronted the corrupt ways of Washington. And the wasteful spending. And the abuses of power. As president, he’s going to end those once and for all.

And from the Troopergate report:

For the reasons explained in section IV of this report, I find that Governor Sarah Palin abused her power by violating Alaska Statute 2952.110(a) of the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Act
