An Alaskan, you may ask?
Van Flein, who has been counselor to Governor Sarah Palin and GOP TEA Party candidate, Joe Miller, will serve as Deputy Chief of Staff to Arizona’s newest member of the congressional delegation.
Here is the excerpt from the Anchorage Daily News‘ Alaska Ear:
ON THE MOVE … Word in the northwest corner of Anchorage is that Tom Van Flein, attorney for Palins, Millers and others, is taking a leave of absence from his firm for at least a year so he can move to Washington, D.C., to be deputy chief of staff for Arizona’s newly elected congressman, dentist Paul Gosar.
It makes sense, darlings. Gosar was endorsed by Our Sarah. He supports Arizona’s anti-illegal-immigrant law and he’s been inducted into the Arizona Dental Association’s Hall of Fame. Sounds like Tom’s cup of tea.
