ARLINGTON, VA — With today's Wall Street Journal report that pro-Obama Democrats have "airdropped a mini-army of 30 lawyers, investigators and opposition researchers into Anchorage" to dig for dirt on Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the vice presidential nominee, the McCain-Palin campaign today launched the Palin Truth Squad to counter recent attacks on Palin, her family, her friends and her record of accomplishment.

According to a statement released by the McCain-Palin campaign, The Palin Truth Squad will set the record straight against Internet and liberal smears of Gov. Palin.

"We're proud of Governor Palin's leadership in Alaska and record of taking on entrenched special interests and the good old boys network," said former Gov. Jane Swift.

"Governor Palin's commitment to reform is well-known, but there are those who would seek to distort that record with vile rumors and smears against her, her husband, her children and her friends. We will not allow those on the left and in the media to smear a woman who has always served her constituents with honor. We know the truth and are committed to ensuring it as well."
