Abstract: Parsec-scale polarization observations of the quasar 4C 71.07 show a misalignment between the inferred magnetic field direction and the structural direction of the jet. Dual frequency VLBI polarimetry was used to to determine whether Faraday rotation was the origin of the misalignment. We find insufficient rotation to realign the field and jet. Other possible mechanisms which may result in a misalignment are discussed.
