Donald Trump has hired the same D.C. power lawyer who vetted Sarah Palin in 2008 to conduct the legal review of his potential running mate.
NBC News confirms that A.B. Culvahouse, a partner in the firm O'Melveny & Myers, will lead the process of sifting through financial, legal and other background materials submitted by potential candidates before Trump finalizes his choice for second-in-command.
Trump personally met Culvahouse Wednesday in New York after the Trump campaign reached out to at least two DC-based law firms in an effort to find the best counsel for the job.

What past scandal came to light about Palin during the campaign? What did I miss?

I assume they mean her daughter’s pregnancy.
NBC’s Kelly MacDonald had a farm-O is meaner and bitchier than twenty Kelly Mayguns.
She didn’t hide the fact about her daughter’s pregnancy. She told them up front.
Plain saved McCains butt from a worse defeat
Should have hired Dick Cheney!! He came up with a GREAT one!
Palin was the only big positive on the ticket. GO SARAH GO
Iirc, it was not known until to the public until the crazies started claiming that Bristol, rather than Sarah, was Trig’s mother. Then they pointed out that Bristol could not have given birth to Trig because she was pregnant with her own child.
biden’s daughter was on drugs and there is a homo and tranny in the white house with two adopted moroccans.
“Yeah, that’s why McCain lost.”
Palin was the only reason I bothered to vote that year.
Palin was the only reason why McCain even had a chance. Palin boosted his poll numbers right after he introduced her. They were actually winning until the idiot GWB crashed the economy and basically handed the election BHO on a silver platter. And we have not seen or heard from the idiot since!
What could possibly go wrong...
Now you... you have a poet’s way with words...
Has anyone ever told you that..?
