Funny thing here is that at the time... she needed it... now, it would be easy for her to pay it back.

And maybe that's why she took the risk to begin with...

You see Sarah became a millionaire only after she "wrote a book".

But now that this is coming to light.... perhaps there will be fines associated with this which be higher than what was illegally used...

Who knows?

It sounds like a complete non-issue. The investigator also says that Palin acted in good faith and basically made an honest mistake that was the result of relying on faulty legal advice. Supposedly, the money is also being returned.


Petumenos, however, found that Palin — the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee — acted in good faith and relied on a team of attorneys to make sure the fund was lawful.

So why exactly was it illegal? Because the put official on the site?

Related story I half read earlier in the week from my state...

Legal defense fund gets OK, with limits


The Arkansas Ethics Commission on Friday gave the green light for elected officials to create legal-defense funds.


Thats all you can read for free. So I don't really know what it is all about.

It's been on the local news all day in great detail. It was because of the use of the word "Official" on the website. The fund was on its own legal had she not used that word. The website was put together by attorneys who screwed up. She trusted the best attorneys money could buy and they got it wrong. She is a victim yet again. It costs nothing to pursue a fake ethics complaint, but it bankrupts the person being lied about.

She was hit by dozens of fake ethics complaints which would have bankrupted her. She did the same thing Bill Clinton did. Raised the legal fund the same way he did.

Perhaps she can go after her attorneys? She should. If this is not incompetence, I don't know what is?

It will expose a lot of the hypocrites and DNC hacks over the next couple of days though. That will be fun to watch. We will be able to see which sites report it honestly and which ones lie or deceive. That has value.


.....sits back and waits for the lies.....

Yes, because it implied she, the Governor, endorsed herself. That is what this is about. after endless false ethics complaints, costing her millions, this is the best they could do.

The message here is, don't run for office if you are an ordinary citizen or we will destroy you.
