ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- The John McCain-Sarah Palin campaign staged another news conference Tuesday trying to whip up the political winds surrounding an investigation into abuse of power allegations against Palin.
The campaign spokespersons -- former Palin administration official Meg Stapleton and Ed O'Callaghan, a New York lawyer -- now refer to themselves as the Palin Truth Squad.
But the squad's version of events may be taking liberty with the truth on some topics related to the investigation, including from whom -- and from what political party -- any influence on the investigation is coming.
"What has happened since that initial vote has been a display of a partisan circus, frankly, by all of the members of the Democratic Party that are involved in the investigation," O'Callaghan said.
