Palin Harassment Continues

Clearly, many people are deathly afraid of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. What else can explain the nonstop badgering and ethics complaints against her? Now it's just getting stupid. Inundated with frivolous ethics complaints, she's set up a legal defense fund, but is now accused of an ethics violation for setting it up.
An ethics complaint filed Monday against Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin claims the legal defense fund formed last week to challenge such claims is an ethics violation itself.

The complaint filed with the attorney general's office seeks an investigation by the state personnel board for violations of the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Act. The complainant, Kim Chatman of Eagle River, claims Palin is misusing the governor's office for personal gain by securing unwarranted benefits and receiving improper gifts.

The governor's office said Monday the new complaint and others filed against Palin or her staff show a disturbing trend in Alaska politics.

"It's obvious the intent with this unprecedented action against the governor is to see her administration paralyzed and for her to declare personal bankruptcy," Palin spokeswoman Sharon Leighow said in an e-mail to The Associated Press.

The new complaint targets the Alaska Fund Trust, which Palin supporter and friend Kristan Cole established last week. Palin has said has said she's accumulated more than $500,000 in legal fees from defending herself against ethics complaints and in Troopergate, the Legislature's probe into the firing of Palin's former public safety commissioner.

Chatman's complaint cites as potential donors the 500,000 supporters signed up for Palin's Facebook account and various political organizations.

"Gov. Palin is perched to improperly receive an enormous amount of money for herself and her family and position a pool of pre-paid defense lawyers organized to deflect consequences of wrongdoings," the complaint says.
Well, if Chatman and her ilk weren't harassing Palin, then there would be no need for a defense fund. Seems to me the fact hundreds of thousands of people are willing to contribute is making Chatman a little jealous.

I recall a certain president named Clinton, along with his wife, had an enormous legal defense fund. I guess only Democrats are allowed to defend themselves.

If you'd like to donate, go here. Seems to me they're going out of their way to keep things honest.
