The Associated Press is reporting that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who is to resign Sunday, may have violated ethics rules by accepting donations to rebut several ethics complaints.
AP writes that a July 14 report by an investigator for the state Personnel Board alleges that Palin is securing unwarranted benefits and receiving improper gifts through the Alaska Fund Trust, set up by supporters.
The investigator says there is probable cause to believe Palin used or attempted to use her official position for personal gain because she authorized the creation of the trust as the “official” legal defense fund. Palin says she owes more than $500,000 in legal bills.
Maybe she’s talking the money because she needs new clothes! Maybe she’s taking that cash because her current hairdresser wasn’t nearly as good as the one the GOP hired for her!
The Wasilla Hillbillies are moving out of Alaska’s Governors mansion and I’m guessing they’ll take the furniture, the blinds, the rugs and the china with them. What isn’t nailed down, will be gone.
…They’ll leave the silverware because that needs polished once in a while. Besides, who needs to work when there’s more looting to be done?
