Oh, by the way...

Politico's Andy Barr reports that another bogus "ethics" complaint filed by disgruntled job applicant Andree McLeod has been dismissed. The professional complainer had charged that Sarah Palin's former communications director Bill McAllister had used Alaska state resources for Palin's political benefit "before, during and after" she was chosen as Sen. John McCain’s 2008 presidential running mate.

According to an Associated Press wire story, McLeod's frivolous legal action, after investigation and consideration, was dismissed as "lacking merit":
"A report from the state Department of Law recommending dismissal of the complaint concluded that no evidence was found that state ethics law was violated."
Undeterred, McLeod branded the dismissal as "more whitewash":
"The evidence and common sense tells you that McAllister and others used state time and resources to work on Sarah Palin's personal political interests and not the state’s interests," she said.
Unfortunately for McLeod, she wouldn't recognize common sense if she tripped over it,  which she has done on at least five occasions:
The grievance was among six filed against Palin or her staff by Anchorage resident Andree McLeod. Five have been dismissed, and one is pending.
We can't imagine who angst-ridden Andree thinks she's fooling. Other than a small circle of drooling, Palin-hating Alaskan bloggers who take their orders from the Obamunist regime, most everyone can see right through her faux outrage.

At least 20 complaints were filed against the governor and/or her aides. At least 20 have been dismissed. Can you say "political harrassment" on the taxpayers' dime? We knew you could! It's the Wyle E. Coyote Effect.
