WASILLA, Alaska — In a stunning announcement, Sarah Palin’s children said they will resign from her family in a few weeks. Speculation has swirled for several months that the Governor’s children would step down if Palin entered the 2012 presidential race, and today’s resignation is being taken by many as a firm indication of Governor Palin’s plans for her political future. Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell will be inaugurated as her successor at the Governor’s Picnic at Pioneer Park in Fairbanks on Sunday, July 26. An emotionally choked-up Parnell said he plans to keep all state commissioners, and all children currently serving in the First Family.
In their statement, the Palin children — Spoor, Twig, Benzene, Skeeter, and Scat — said that the “media circus” surrounding their mother made it “difficult to focus on the job to which Alaskans indirectly elected us.” They concluded by pledging that their forthcoming adoption by Lt. Governor Parnell would “help to restore honor and dignity to the First Family.”
