Rebecca Mansour, a Sarah Palin speechwriter and policy adviser, mocked top political figures and daughter Bristol, according to direct Twitter messages forwarded to the Daily Caller.
The most shocking comments were about Bristol Palin:
Sent in the aftermath of Bristol announcing to Us Weekly she was planning to marry Levi Johnston, Mansour wrote, “I wish they were the Cleavers too. But it’s life.”
“Two words: Patti Davis. Okay three more: Ron Reagan Junior. Two more: Billy Carter. Doesn’t your family have one?” Mansour said.
“She will hold her at arm’s length. Even Thatcher was never able to disown her screw up son Mark. It’s a Mom thing,” Mansour wrote.
And Mansour didn’t tell the truth when initially asked about these messages.
When originally contacted by TheDC about the messages, Mansour lied and said none of them were from her. Mansour said she had already encountered the messages and accurately recalled the Twitter handle for their source.
However, tests and forensic analysis revealed Mansour’s explanation not to be true, and she eventually stopped her denials.
