Todd Palin’s Snowmobile Team Tied to “Dictator” Hugo Chavez
Guest-Posted by TLW3
While Sarah Palin has spent plenty of time denouncing Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez as a dictator and called for energy independence, Todd Palin’s snowmobile team is sponsored by a division of CITGO, part of Venezuela’s state-owned oil and gas company.
Todd Palin’s Iron Dog snowmobile team competed this year under a sponsorship from Mystik Lubricants, which was founded in Texas in 1922 but now resides under the Citgo corporate banner.
“Mystik Lubricants is a proud sponsor of Scott Davis and Todd Palin, competitors in the 2010 Iron Dog,” the company said on its site. “Mystik is … a sponsor of Team #22 Scott Davis and Todd Palin — past Iron Dog Champions. Davis Racing team which includes Scott Davis, Todd Palin, Regina Daniels, Cory Davis and Carly Davis accepted Mystik Lubricants’ sponsorship offer.”
