Palpatine Health Rumors Denied
CORE NODE – Supreme Chancellor Palpatine is in excellent health, and has no plans to take an extended vacation before the Military Creation Act vote, said one of the Chancellor’s closest aides today. Sate Pestage, the personal advisor to Palpatine, addressed the latest rumors regarding the Chancellor’s health. “If he looks tired, holding the Republic together is tiring. He’s working day and night to deal with the Separatist issue, but his health is up to it. He has the energy of a man half his age,” said Pestage.
