Koster joins a slect list of socially conservative candidates who have gotten money from Palin, including Kirk Adams, a state legislator in Arizona who's running for congress and boasts about ending abortion services at local Planned Parenthoods and Martha Zoller, a right wing talk talk show host running for Congress for the new 9th District in Georgia who wants to eliminate the Departments of energy, education, and commerce, along with the Environmental Protection Agency.
Her plan announces: “In the name of tolerance, radical liberals seek to destroy anything related to God or our Judeo-Christian heritage and remove it from the public square…”
