Levi Johnston was on CBS’ The Early Show today, and Sarah Palin’s problem that won’t go away, made an ominous claim. Johnston said, “I have things that can, you know — that would get her in trouble, and could hurt her. Will hurt her. But I’m not gonna go that far.”
Here is the video:
Johnston said, “There are some things that I have that are huge. And I haven’t said them because I’m not gonna hurt her that way… I have things that can, you know — that would get her in trouble, and could hurt her. Will hurt her. But I’m not gonna go that far. You know, I mean, if I really wanted to hurt her, I could, very easily. But there’s — I’m not gonna do it. I’m not going that far.” Johnston said that he is referring to things that she did while she was governor of Alaska. He would not say if she did things that were illegal or immoral.
He also said that he only put the little things in his Vanity Fair story, “Those are just little … things I put in Vanity Fair. You know, all the big things I got, I’m keeping — you know, I’m keeping them in, and — you know, it’s just something that probably will never come out.”
I tend to believe that he does have something. There has got to be a reason why the Palin camp went from fighting this guy to letting him say whatever he wants unanswered. If there really is a skeleton in the closet, it will come out if she runs for president in 2012. My guess is that it probably relates to her abrupt and odd resignation from her position as Alaska governor.
I think Levi is going to be a constant thorn in the side of her political ambitions. With Palin’s book due to be released in a few weeks, it will be interesting to see if she makes the full media rounds and addresses some of Johnston’s claims or if she limits herself to Oprah, and her usual media bubble.
