A Lifelong Alaskan's Take on the 49th State

Sarah Palin is one of only 3 Governors to resign mid-term since 1900

Over at The Mudflats, akmuckraker posted an interesting tidbit that one of her dedicated readers researched – Sarah Palin is one of only 3 U.S. Governors to resign mid-term since 1900.

The other 2? Jim McGreevy and Eliot Spitzer.  For those keeping score at home, Jim McGreevy was the Governor of New Jersey from 2002-2004 before he resigned after having a homosexual affair with the man he had appointed homeland security adviser. Eliot Spitzer served as Governor of New York for just over a year before resigning in 2008 in the wake of his involvement in a high-priced prostitution ring.

Looks to me like Sarah Palin is in good company.
