Des Moines Register: TPoA makes changes at Palin’s staff’s request

“We’re all friends and she’s not coming,” he said, referring to O’Donnell.
Des Moines Register chief political writer Jennifer Jacobs reports that Christine O'Donnell, who was invited, uninvited, and the re-invited to the September 3 event in Indianola, IA, has been uninvited again, and Sarah Palin is a “maybe”:
In the latest episode in the drama over the speaking lineup for Saturday’s Tea Party of America rally in Iowa, organizer Ken Crow said Palin’s staff called this morning to say Palin’s appearance at the rally was “on hold” until three changes were made.

“They said, ‘Ken, can you take care of bing, bing, bing’ and I said, ‘Yessir, I will’ and I did,” Crow, an Indianola Republican told The Des Moines Register.

“Now I’m waiting to [hear] back.”

Crow said two of the requests were logistical details: Email a copy of the program today, and address concerns about back-stage security and who will be allowed in that area.

Asked about the third request, Crow said: “Can I let that remain private for now?”

Meanwhile, Crow telephoned staff for O’Donnell, a Delaware Republican who ran for the U.S. Senate, to say she can’t speak at Saturday’s event.
