    Do you have a link where the BBB disagrees with Goldline's schemes/scams?

    Among the defenses it raised was Goldline's "A+ rating" from the Better Business Bureau. Beck, too, has highlighted the BBB endorsement in his defense of Goldline. But does that rating really mean anything?

    After all, a Mother Jones investigation found that more than 40 people have filed complaints against Goldline with that very same BBB, and seven of those people reported back that Goldline refused to make them whole. Goldline also engages in a few practices that don't seem like they quite fit in with the BBB's stated ideas about good consumer practices.

    [QUOTE=hazlnut;1058947098]I'm sorry, didn't Palin quit being governor for bull**** reasons so she could make more money peddling books on fox?

    That's failure.

    QUOTE]

    Actually she was more or less forced out by the likes of Palin haters like you. She put Alaska above her own best interests.
    There were hundreds of frivilous ethics violations filed against her (none stuck) it was costing Alaska too much money and she didn't have any time to govern. Here's a little from her book. Pg. 377 in case you're interested in truth.



    How would millions more in FOIA's and ethics complaints and lawsuits benefit Alaskans? I prayed hard because I knew if I resigned, it might very well end any future political career.
    But then I thought, this is what's wrong with our political system. Too many polititians only consider their next career move. They don't put the people they are serving first.
    In the end I decided, politically speaking, if I die I die.I had to do the right thing. It might be the end of my career, but it wouldn't be the end of my work to make a difference. No one can make me "sit down and shut up." I don't need a title to effect positive change.

    Palin wasn't forced out of anything.

    Breaking News: Palin Found Guilty of Ethics Violation
    Posted by Shannon LC Cate
    The legislative panel to investigate whether or not Sarah Palin abused her power in trying to have her ex-brother-in-law, a state trooper, fired ("Troopergate") has concluded that she did, indeed violate the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Law.
    According to the panel,
    Palin put pressure on, and allowed her husband to use the governor's office to put pressure on Public Safety Commissioner Walter Monegan to fire the trooper. When he refused, Monegan himself was fired by Palin.

    Nearly a year after she quit her governorship of Alaska, Sarah Palin was found guilty today of another breach of the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Act involving her so-called Alaska Fund Trust (AFT), which she established as a private "legal defense fund" while governor.

    Here are the list of complaints against Sarah Palin along with their status.

    By the way I don't put much faith in Huffington Post or the other leftwing websites as both these were made right after her nomination as a Vice Presidential Candidate and actually have been disposed of as indicated in the link I gave you.

    Now I would have preferred that she not resign as Governor and finish out her term but most of these appear to be politically motivated and really without merit. She is now demonized by liberals simply because they disagree with her politics and we all know that liberals attempt to destroy anyone that disagrees with them.

    I have seen nothing that disputes that A+ rating which is the "gold" standard of ratings. Based upon that rating Beck accepted them as an advertiser. What would you have done?

    No, I think you're right. Don't be so quick to apologize. I just don't have anything in front of me right now.
    If you're wrong, I'm wrong too.

    I agree, I went back and edited that apology and followed it up on a list from the Anchorage paper regarding all those alleged convictions which were nothing more than leftwing wishes.

    Mother Jones? You might as well have given us a link to Media Matters.
    Why did Weiner choose Goldline to haul in front of congress?
    I wonder how many complaints were filed against other gold sellers.
    Even if goldline turns out to be scum, you have to ask yourself, why were they singled out?

    Not that it has anything to do with her being found guilty of "ethics" violations, but
    I too wonder, why "her" candidate for Senator is still leading the incumbent there, could it be Alaskans don't care about Palin's ethic's violations? Lots of conservatives in the continental US don't seem to care, either.

    As for the ethics claims that were made against her that she had to pay - that was all her doing. It was my understanding that Palin thought that McCain's campaign was going to pick up the tab, chose to not make them Alaska's responsibility and this way the hearings would not be "public". It didn't turn out that way.

    Van Flein initially was hired by the state under a $95,000 contract to represent Palin in a legislative investigation of Troopergate.

    At issue was whether Palin pushed for the firing of her ex-brother-in-law, state Trooper Mike Wooten, then fired public safety commissioner Walt Monegan when the trooper stayed on the job.

    But just after Van Flein was tapped, Palin landed on the national GOP ticket. Van Flein said the investigation "became part of the national campaign strategy against the governor." He never billed the state.

    Granted many of the cases were frivolous, but many of them were not, such as this other one. And accusations that they all came from Dems is another con fib.

    Palin last month reimbursed the state more than $8,000 for travel expenses for nine trips, accompanied by her children, after the state paid for them. Another inquiry led to some new ethics training for a staff member.

    McLeod, a registered Republican, has filed several complaints since Palin announced her decision to step down, including the one regarding gift disclosures. She has also filed two lawsuits, including one regarding whether it was appropriate for state business to be discussed using private e-mail addresses.

    Ethics complaints follow Palin - CNN.com

    Go to Glenn Beck Program. Type in "Restoring Honor" in the search box and you'll get a bunch of links to what Glenn has said about the event. That is, IF you genuinely want to know.
