The Alaska Personnel Board exonerated her a few weeks later.
As far as the legal harrassment that followed after the election, there are links galore, but I'm still looking for legit journalistic overview. If anyone has one let me know. I'd like to read one.
I found an old Newsmax piece (they do a lot of rah-rah stuff) that says there were 14 or 15 ethics complaints filed before she resigned, for things like conducting a television interview in her office, going to a pro-life breakfast in Indiana, and for wearing a jacket provided by Mr. Palin's snow-boarding sponsor to a public function. I can't find anything that stuck.

So yeah. She's pretty hardcore.
You and I have gone head to head here many times, and you know what? I have always respected your opinion, because it is honest, even if I don't agree with it sometimes. That is why I can't believe that you support her so vehemently. Just look at her. Don't look at the Liberal portrayal of her. Look at HER. She is so moronic that she makes Dan Quayle look like a Rhodes Scholar. She is a Liberal's wet dream, and they want her to win the Republican nomination so badly that they can taste it.
Come on, Rev, you are a very intelligent guy, and I can see that you are an independent thinker most of the time. You can't believe she is qualified to be president. You just can't. You are way better than that.

The ghost of Jack Kevorkian for President's Physician: 2016
with one law after the next telling local units of government how to run their own affairs. Come to Michigan and see the party of Lincoln bury and urinate upon the principle of "government of the people, by the people and for the people" with their Emergency Manager take over legislation which throws out elected officials in favor of dictatorships without any checks and balances.I'm from the government and I' here to help"
That is hypocrisy that has both former Republican Presidents spinning at light speed in their graves.
Of course, this is certainly all right in your book since it comes from your own party and you are a True Believer.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
Here's stupid in action, and a reflection on everyone who voted for him.

At one point, Palin's approval ratings among her native Alaskans was at it's peak of 86%. Right now, her approval rating in Alaska is around 39%, which is below her national approval rating.

Second, that Barack Obama is 'stupid.' First, Barack Obama has a BA from Columbia, and a Doctorate in Law from Harvard. Second, read his books, or just listen to the guy talk for ten minutes. You can legitimately criticize Barack Obama on a number of fronts, I'm hardly his biggest fan, but you don't just get to make **** up about people because you dislike them. I don't think Sarah Palin is extremely intelligent, because she has presented zero evidence of being exceptionally intelligent. In fact, while she isn't drooling into the carpet, she has repeatedly, and consistently given the impression of someone who is, very clearly, at the low end of the spectrum, among the political class.

All over the place, from the popular culture to the propaganda system, there is constant pressure to make people feel that they are helpless, that the only role they can have is to ratify decisions and to consume. -Noam Chomsky
The left has a leader and his name is Barack Obama.
I saw this dude on the View today and am so glad he wrote this book. I bet Palin wishes to claw his eyes out and kill him

I think this guy wasted his time writing this book. Who wants to buy a book that merely articulates the obvious?
He had his reasons, but the bulk seems to be that he felt like a fool. He felt tricked. Of course, I'm just guessing that he fears she'll run for President, and he knows that would be a very, very bad thing.
