Lyda Green refuses to support Alaska's troops
Alaska Senate president Lyda Green is trying to block governor Sarah Palin from seeing her son graduate basic training Thursday at Fort Benning, Georgia.
Palin sent a letter December 18th asking lawmakers to schedule a joint session of the House and Senate to hear the speech at 6 pm on the first night of the legislative session so Palin could make a 9 pm flight that night to Seattle.
The 6 pm timeslot would allow Palin to catch a flight she had paid for and booked in advance.
Green claims that the traditional time is 7 pm and it should stay that way.
Senate Majority spokesman
A mother supporting her child at boot camp is as real as it gets.
Green has some explaining to do to her constituents in Wasilla with family members in the military.
And support our troops.
