Sarah Palin, former candidate for the vice presidency of the United States in 2008 for the Republican Party and former governor of Alaska from 2006 to 2009, has a pending trial with the “New York Times” after the lawsuit he imposed against the American newspaper for defamation. The case, scheduled for this Monday, had to finally postponed to next February 3 when Palin tested positive for COVID-19.
“It will be on my corpse that they force me to get vaccinated. I am not going to do it”, he recently stated during a speech in Arizona. But the Republican is not only not vaccinated but also, despite the obligation to present the complete vaccination schedule for dinner in New York, he was able to enjoy a well-known Manhattan restaurant on the eve of his litigation.
The former governor, who is now 57 years old, has sowed controversy over the lack of regulation when it comes to enforcing the mandates and restrictions due to the pandemic, demonstrating that some people may use their own influence to exempt themselves from these restrictions.
The owner of the restaurant in question, located in the emblematic Upper East Side New Yorker, promised to get to the bottom of the matter to find out what had happened and admitted having “made a big mistake” by not checking Palin’s vaccination status, being compulsory to be able to consume drinks and food in any bar, restaurant and nightlife in the Big Apple.
Sarah Palin, who had already been infected with coronavirus previously, has fueled the discourse of rejection against inoculations, when the deaths from COVID-19 in the United States reach 870,000 fatalities and, currently, exceed 71 million cases of contagion.
Having now to undergo quarantine, the New York trial will be held when Palin overcomes the coronavirus.
The lawsuit, which dates from 2017, alludes to the publication of the newspaper through an editorial that alluded to a 2011 shooting in which six people died and the then Democratic congresswoman, Gabby Giffords, was seriously injured.
The New York Times He linked that event to a map that had been distributed by the Republican’s election campaign team pointing out several districts, including Giffords, as target points. Despite the rectification of the diary, days later, Palin took legal action to obtain financial compensation alleging that the newspaper acted in “bad faith.”
