Despite an announcement earlier this month that former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin was to speak at an event in Simi Valley, today a representative says she never committed to attending. “As repeatedly stated to several in the media over the last week, former Governor Sarah Palin is not committed to attend the Simi Valley Republican Women’s event at the Reagan Library and in fact is not attending the event,” read a statement that was posted on Palin‘s Facebook site and posted on CNN. “Neither the Governor’s state staff nor SarahPAC has ever committed to attending this event or speaking at this event, and even requested that the Governor's name be removed from the invitation several weeks ago.” The event is scheduled for Saturday, August 8th for the Republican Women Federated of Simi Valley.
