SARAH Palin served as the 9th governor of Alaska from 2006-2009 and was also the former vice presidential nominee alongside Arizona Senator John McCain in 2008.
Since her resignation, Palin has kept a low profile but is attempting to make a comeback in the political world.
Where is Sarah Palin now?
Palin, 57, is gearing up to take her defamation case against the New York Times to court.
While the trial was set to begin on January 24, 2022, it was delayed after Palin tested positive for Covid-19 again.
The former Alaska governor was previously diagnosed with Covid in March 2021.
Palin claims that the Times and its former editorial page editor James Bennet damaged her reputation after the media outlet linked her to a 2011 mass shooting in Arizona that left six people dead and U.S. Representative Gabby Giffords wounded, according to Reuters.
While the Times was quick to correct the editorial to disclaim any connection, Palin said the disputed material fit Bennet's "preconceived narrative."
She is seeking $421,000 in damage to her reputation, according to court papers.
