Palin and the gold mine above Bristol Bay-
Salah Palin may have violated state law when she tried to divorce herself from the fact that she was governor to register her opposition to a ballot referendum designed to kill the Pebble Mine.
She basically endorsed the controversial Pebble mine that could destroy the world class sport and commercial fisheries of the Bristol Bay area (including lakes and streams). The damage is due to its massive size and utilization of low grade ore. The result is huge amounts of waste
This forum has covered this awful mine proposal several times before.
It good to see the national media pick up on this.
