Washington, Nov 3 (ANI): After a Politico report claimed that top GOP operatives in Washington want to stop her from winning the presidential nomination out of a fear that she would lose badly in the general elections in 2012, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has said that "sleazy" establishment Republicans are out to get her.
"Some within the establishment don't like the fact that I won't back down to a good-old-boys club. A lot of this has to do with control, power, money," Politico quoted Palin, as saying.
"Establishment bosses and advisers that try to shape a candidate and get paid to shape that candidate. It's very sleazy," she added.
Palin further complained about the consultant culture in Washington, arguing that party operatives are often working in their own best interests rather than doing what is best for the party.
According to a report published on Sunday by Politico, key Republicans view a 2012 Palin bid for the White House as a "disaster in waiting."
On Monday, Palin had slammed the report by Politico and called it "crap," and added: "I don't think the paper that we just printed this article on, you know, it's not worth even wrapping my King Salmon in...I'll just ignore this crap." (ANI)
