Governor Palin Cleared

with 2 comments

PalinClearedThe accusations made news, but with another dismissal of an ethics charge last week against Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the former Republican vice-presidential nominee has quietly been cleared of every ethics complaint filed since the torrent of allegations began in 2008.

Mrs. Palin, who became a target of such complaints after being named Sen. John McCain’s running mate, is 14-for-14 in fighting off the complaints. She’s been cleared of 13 charges by the independent State Personnel Board and of another complaint by the Federal Election Commission (FEC).

After the latest complaint in Alaska was dismissed last week, Mrs. Palin’s team said that having to fend off the pile of accusations was wasting state money.

“This complaint cost the governor personally, and the state of Alaska, thousands of dollars to address,” said Thomas Van Flein, the governor’s attorney. “It is regrettable that the ethics process has been diverted for partisan purposes by some, but it is also commendable that the board remains focused on the law.”

The floodgates opened after Mrs. Palin was tapped by Mr. McCain of Arizona and she was accused of abusing power by firing state Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan.

Four complaints related to this matter were filed to the personnel board. One of them was filed by the governor as a means of self-disclosure. In the end, no violation was found.

  1. The crazy liberal moonbats tried to break Sarah Palin, both in money and spirit. They failed. Sarah will get her revenge when liberals are ousted in 2010 and 2012! Go Sarah!!

    • You gotta scratch your head when you hear the left speak better of the people who are trying to kill us than about Sarah Palin. If this continues, and there is no reason to think it won’t, the leftist in this country are destined to get exactly what they deserve. Sadly, so will the rest of us as punishment for waiting too long to fight back.
