Witnesses and contemporary news accounts say Ms. Palin asked the librarian about removing books from the shelves. The McCain-Palin presidential campaign says Ms. Palin never advocated censorship.Well of course she didn't read it. Being gay is a choice, remember, so you must insulate yourself from any exposure, lest the siren song of homosexuality lure you into Teh Gay!
But in 1995, Ms. Palin, then a city councilwoman, told colleagues that she had noticed the book "Daddy's Roommate" on the shelves and that it did not belong there, according to Ms. Chase and Mr. Stein. Ms. Chase read the book, which helps children understand homosexuality, and said it was inoffensive; she suggested that Ms. Palin read it.
"Sarah said she didn't need to read that stuff," Ms. Chase said. "It was disturbing that someone would be willing to remove a book from the library and she didn't even read it."
Book Banning confirmed.
Despite Palin's assurances to the contrary, we've got confirmation that she sought to ban books from the Wasilla library.
