    AP NewsBreak: Palin implicated in ethics probe

    An independent investigator has found that Sarah Palin may have broken ethics laws by accepting private gifts to help pay her legal costs.

    The report obtained by The Associated Press says Palin is securing unwarranted benefits and receiving improper gifts through the Alaska Fund Trust, set up by supporters.
    You know, whenever somebody stands on a pedestal and tells everybody else how to live their lives, a little red light always goes off in my head.

    Stick a fork in Palin's political career. It is done.

    So what you're saying is that because Palin couldn't afford and shouldn't have had to use her own money to defend against the fourteen baseless ethics complaints the nazis have filed against her in the very recent past, they can now file an ethics complaint against her for trying to defend herself from them, when in fact she wouldn't have had to make this mistake if those nazis hadn't filed so many bogus claims already.

    How about if we change the ethics laws so that people who file ethics charges that are subsequently thrown out have to re-imburse the full cost of defending against them and have to pay the falsely accused a reparation not to be less than 100% of the costs their false allegations incurred?

    To put things in their proper perspective....did the Clintons pay any taxes on their legal defense funds when they pocketed the remainder of the funds when the legal issues were not pursued by Bush, and what favors were traded for donations to those funds?

    Well, I'm sure it's all very interesting, having a red light district in your head, but that's really T.M.O.

    The simple fact of the matter is that with outside help, or new income, the Palin's could never pay their legal debts, which is also illegal. this should suggest certain things to you about the nature of the laws and ethics involved in these matters.

    This is exactly what many of us just knew inside our gutt that this piece of phoney baloney holier than thou crap was going to get hers eventually. One has to wonder if old Igloo knew that this was coming and decided to quit before the heat got too much and iGloo had a melt down.

    What pizzes me off is the crap that those of us who had said that this sorry excuse for a "reformer" was a phoney baloney had to take every time we told the truth about this dispicable Cover Girl for Corruption Monthly. Oh yeh us truth sayers we were accused of partisanship.

    Well look around guys we have Palin and Blogo and Don't Cry For Me Argentina and Traficant and how about Bathroom Boy Craig and Biil-o Clinton and the whoremaster from Lousiana -- yeh guys both parties swim in the swill of the political and moral cesspool of corruption!!!

    I can't say I'm surprised by the latest turn of events. Palin engineered this train wreck by signing legislation that gave her critics the loopholes they're using against her.

    It's the same old thing of these dispicable people thinking that they are above the law and above the moral code of ethics that they mouth off as them actually believing in.
