    Like I said... The FBI was never necessary for an investigation. Their claim of "huh? what?" meant nothing. ...

    AP NewsBreak: Palin implicated in ethics probe


    AP NewsBreak: Palin implicated in ethics probe - Yahoo! News

    By RACHEL D'ORO, Associated Press Writer
    Rachel D'oro, Associated Press Writer – 1 hr 14 mins ago

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska – An independent investigator has found evidence that Gov. Sarah Palin may have violated ethics laws by accepting private donations to pay her legal debts, in the latest legal distraction for the former vice presidential candidate as she prepares to leave office this week.

    The report obtained by The Associated Press says Palin is securing unwarranted benefits and receiving improper gifts through the Alaska Fund Trust, set up by supporters.

    An investigator for the state Personnel Board says in his July 14 report that there is probable cause to believe Palin used or attempted to use her official position for personal gain because she authorized the creation of the trust as the "official" legal defense fund.​

    Does this mean that Clinton broke the law with his legal defense fund?


    It's not like it was under the table they set up a web site....

    From the Facebook page of Palin's attorney:



    A smear before the is found to be innocent like she has been on the other 17 frivilous charges that have been filed by dem activist?

    "Frivilous".... That's funny... And those repeated allegations about Michael Jackson and young boys was also "frivilous." .... Because of course, Michael never did anything wrong, and it was just a witch hunt. Proof being that he was never found guilty.

    Here's something to remember for all of you trumpeting the "nah, nah, 17 exhonerations" song:

    All of the members of Alaska's personnel board were appointed by Sarah Palin, and they are the people reviewing and passing judgment on these complaints.

    So you've punted to Flogic's ridiculous premise to explain to yourself why newspapers are ill. That's excellent. Next, you'll be promoting the sacred hand-picked family unit and homosexuality as "sin."

    Newspapers are dying because of free internet advertising. Period. But don't let that stop you from ignoring facts in a post put to you, and keeping those goalposts moving.

    Your hero's political career is over. This thread was merely about our prediction that a new scandal was brewing, not that we're concerned about this partisan loon.

    Thanks for playing.

    All the manslaughter, serial adultery, and stone-walling lies the Kennedys, Bill Clinton, John Edwards, and a whole host of other Dems have done is removed from the news shelves immediately, while a single hang-over by a Repubs is given the legs of an Ethiopian marathon runner ... all by our "fiercely independent" <cough, cough> press in America. The First Amendment has turned into the Dominant (Left) Media Culture monopoly, much to the world's chagrin.

    A "single hang over." You're re-writing history once again, fraud.

    And once again, no one is buying it.

    Wanna bet??

    People wanted to believe that a black man and a Democrat party plan would be superior to what we had before, but as everyone now sees, it was all smoke and mirrors. All made possible due to a willing enabling press, being the left-wing lap dogs they have been since Walter Duranty told us -- via his columns in the New York Times -- that "Papa" Joe Stalin was a "good" man.

    I notice that you didn't address the FACT that so many complaints with dismissed, or that it was done by a handful of dems activist with an ax to grind.

    BTW does that make Clinton's legal defense fund against the law also?

    Case closed.

    Another limp dicked argument, the laws of Alaska are different than the laws of the US... they are all patterned after the same principal, but are written differently in different jurisdictions ... but this is about as lame as it gets, Clinton did something ergo it is ok for Sarah.. blame the media.. wah! wah! wah!

    Speaking of limp dicks what happened to your prediction of an immenent sex scandal when she announced her resignation.

    Fun to see the lefties grasping at straws dealing with a person who is leaving office next and whose political career is 'over'.


    What Alaska law makes it illegal to havea legal defense fund?

    Is this illegal in any states with a dem gov or senator? Perhaps conservative could try to badger them into bankruptcy, this could get to be fun, endless unfounded complaints to drive people out of office because of legal bills great.

    Typical straw man argument, the allegation has to do with specific law in Alaska.. go research it.. tired of you folks putting right wing talking points out there with no hard work.. it may or may not be founded, but it is an allegation. Think of a new angle beside Clinton did it, that is getting real tired...

    Go research the 50 states, they are all different.. that is what is meant by states rights.. FYI the usual standard for ethics violations, is an "appearance of impropriety".. how that is defined specifically is left up to the states..

    Anchorage Daily News is a good place to start your search.. they are a pretty good source. Quit the poor Sarah shyt.. she put herself out there, this is what happens in modern day politics... it is not right, but it is what it is right now.

    Here is the ADN view of this, http://www.adn.com/palin/story/872192.html, wow that was hard, and Rushbo did not even tell me about this.. it is a big world out there..

    Blood in the water, hey sharks? Did anyone here actually read and comprehend the article or are we just in a feeding frenzy with the smell of blood?

    Cripes, charge after charge after charge is levied and she's almost ruined financially with hundreds of thousands in legal bills prompting her to set up a legal defense fund to try and save her family form BK. Now technically using her position to create the fund may be (may have violated is the direct quote from the article) a violation because an average citizen would not have the influence to create such a fund and get people to donate to it. So here's the evil part I guess. because she's a governor then she probably gets more donations than the average citizen would. Therefore she's gets an advantage because of her office.


    Wow what an evil corrupt and vile person she is. But then that begs the question of how would the average citizen find themselves in a similar position of having to fend off so many frivolous and trumped up charges? Then we can point to what the investigator himself feels about what he's found himself having to do.

    The investigator, Thomas Daniel, sided with Palin in her frustration with having to defend herself against a barrage of ethics complaints. He suggested that Alaska lawmakers may need to create a law that reimburses public officials for legal expenses to defend complaints that end up being unfounded.

    And for the record (from the article)

    At least 19 ethics complaints have been filed against Palin, most of them after she was named the running mate for GOP presidential candidate John McCain. Most of those have been dismissed, (some are pending) and Palin's office usually sends a news release with the announcement.

    Next weeks Palin news: Sarah went to lunch and forgot to punch out!:eek:


    BTW the title of this thread is sensational and misleading but par for the Palin course I guess.

    Governors should know the law and its subtleties, to avoid any appearances of impropriety... if the law is wrong, change it.. after AK is largely Republican.. the Atty. found probable cause in this case, so it is likely that it is founded..

    Sarah Palin has nobody to blame but herself. If she isn't able to handle politics then she shouldn't be in politics. We need Margaret Thatcher's, not drama queens and their hysterical fans.

    She shouldn't have made herself such an easy target. That's what happens when you don't bother to keep up to date with the issues of the day and understand the laws of the state.. most Governors have at their disposal a cadre of State Attorneys to advise her on how she should proceed and the nuance of law... not every idea is a good idea legally.

    Why do the Democrat Liberals spend so much time worrying about this one women, the Obama News Media hasn't let up on her since the day she showed up, those Slobbering Drooling Fools on NBC (MSNBC) go crazy over her, the Threat must be there, they must worry about what her next move will be, they laugh and snicker when this is mentioned but the truth is she scares the sh!t out of them and they have to destroy her, her husband, her children and all the little babies in her family (King Herod)

    The day after the old Closet Democrat Nut McCain introduced her she immediatly became a "super star" people like Baggy Pant Suit Hillary didn't know what hit them, a women who nobody ever heard of walks out onto a stage and gets a reception that politicians would kill for, screaming, whistling, yelling ten minute standing ovations.

    Something strange in all this, "The Clintons" I have never read or heard one word about Palin from the Clintons....:confused:

    Sarah may have a few Ethical Problems but those people who give her the standing ovations don't care not after the Garbage the Clintons/Kennedy's/ have bestowed upon us.

    The Dingobats and The Obama Media will play every dirty trick in the book but Palin is ready for them, Palins age gives her plenty of time someday she will be back the Democrats know this and that is why they are trying to Crucify and Destroy her as soon as possible.

    Sneak up behind a democrat politician and yell "Sarah Palin" they'll sh!t their pants.

    Oh Let The Savior
    Thou Will Guide Us
    Till We Reach That Distant Shore
    Where The Angels Wait To Greet Us
    In Gods Grace Forever More.

    WATCH OUT, HERE COMES SARAH.............:singing:

    Hysterical fans? File non stop charges against any governor and sooner or later someone will hit on some obscure violation that has some legal merit. They are out to destroy her any way the can. Bill Belichick CHEATED:eek: Is sticking up for Bill a hysterical response from Pats fans or is it hysterical haters that look for anything to bring him down? Same goddamned mentality here though this is far less intentional than Bill's, actually. Enough is enough.
