Sarah Palin has a perfectly good explanation for speeding ticket

SHARE Sarah Palin has a perfectly good explanation for speeding ticket

According to law enforcement, Sarah Palin can’t drive 45 in her pickup truck, but she has a perfectly good explanation for it.

Last week, the former Alaska governor was pulled over in her hometown of Alaska for doing 17 MPH over the 45 MPH limit. And yes, she did get a ticket, which will set her back $154.

But she insists the whole incident isn’t what it appears to be.

“I wasn’t speeding,” she told TMZ. “I was qualifying.”

And because Palin just can’t stay out of the spotlight, she also weighed in Wednesday on HBO’s “True Blood,” which took a shot at Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), by turning one of his fundraisers into a bloodbath.

Palin said she once turned down an offer to do a cameo on the show.

“The brilliant minds of ‘True Blood’ were brazen enough to ask me to do a cameo on their show, apparently so they could insult a conservative woman in person instead of just all conservative women in general,” Palin told Breitbart. “Their offer wasn’t presented in any negative way, perhaps to benefit from a surprise factor after the guest appearance. I turned them down anyway.”
