Jon Voight understands why Governor Palin resigned her position as Governor of Alaska. He tells the Anchorage Daily News the following:
I sure would vote for her if she was running for president….Some people have said that they were upset with her for leaving the governorship when she did. I disagree with those people. I think she saved Alaska with that move. She had capable people who were going to take over … She was being attacked, she was being prevented from governing. And they knew it. That’s what they were intending to do.
They were going to bring her down. She had to answer all of these nonsense lawsuits and everybody who’s gone through one lawsuit knows the stress that puts on you. The time that it puts on you. The money it draws from you. She was being destroyed in her governance of the state and in her personal well being
What she did was she took the target and moved it. She took it away from Alaska. Great. She did a great service there. And smart as hell.
