Sarah Palin’s brother, Chuck Heath Jr., posted this note on Facebook on January 11:
Coincidence? You decide.
My father, who worked multiple jobs and faithfully and honestly paid his taxes for fifty years, had never heard a word from the IRS. In 2008, his daughter was tapped to run for vice president of the United States. Since that time, he has been, in his words “horribly harassed” six times by the agency. They’ve tried to dig up something on him but he’s always operated above board.
Government and politics are ugly. Kudos to the few that are trying to clean it up.
To date, Heath’s comments have not generated any mainstream media attention at all. The same media that generated story after story from the now discredited claim by waitress Dayna Morales, which was also posted on Facebook, that a family mistreated her because she is gay, are completely ignoring Heath’s claim that the father of a former Republican vice presidential nominee is being harassed by the federal government because of the family’s politics. The same media that can’t get enough of stories about “scandal-plagued” Chris Christie, are ignoring this.
