New scandal involving Palin's first term as mayor?

Brace yourselves, but apparently Palin tried to get other people with her views elected to the Wasilla city council so that she could get the proposals that she was backing passed by the council. This is undoubtedly the most damaging charge against her so far. The notion that she would try to "pack" the city council and elect council members who agreed with her is just down right undemocratic. Fortunately, the Seattle Times is on the case (republished in the Anchorage Daily News):

She became embroiled in personnel challenges, a thwarted attempt to pack the City Council and a standoff with her local newspaper. Her first months were so contentious and polarizing that critics started talking recall. . . .
