The ADN has an article with a snazzy headline that reads:
Ethics investigator rules against Palin
But here is the meat and potatoes of the article.
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.
This whole issue is a joke and it is the left's attempt to find some victory when in fact it is not.
NORMAL people can see what is taking place and the fact that Palin was going public with the fund and sought legal counsel on it, shows how asinine that headline reads.
Regardless if the money has to be returned, it won't hurt Palin politically, but will in fact help her.
And last, was it because Palin became a political celebrity through her V.P. nomination that she is able to get the donations or is it because her role as a Governor?
The answer is obvious. Her role as Governor had nothing to do with her being able to get contributions, but it had everything to do with the filing of frivolous complaints.
