Palin the Neck: Alaska Governor Says that She Has Spent $500,000 on Frivolous Lawsuits

225px-palin1Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has come out with criticism of the citizens who have filed ethics complaints against her. She says that all of these ethics charges are frivolous and politically motivated — and cost $500,000 to defend against.

Eighteen complaints have been filed against Palin. She has asked “Are Alaskans outraged, or at least tired of this yet — another frivolous ethics charge by a political blogger?”

While some of the complaints may indeed by politically motivated and frivolous, some are obviously more substantive. All but one have come from Alaskans and, even though the Alaska Personnel Board rejected one complaint, it still resulted in Palin having to pay the state $10,000 for trips taken by her children.

  1. Government—State and Federal—per diem is always ripe for corruption by unethical civil ‘servants’. I saw an abundance of it and although I reported the abuse, none of it was ever resolved, mainly because virtually everyone pads his or her government expense accounts. Ms. Palin most definitely has the abundant company of the majority of others regarding per diem overcharges.

    Public servants must understand and remember where the money to travel on “junkets” comes from and that they, the unethical bankers, Wall Street tycoons, and others receiving government funding are running the citizenries’ money well dry.

  2. I don’t see how Obama’s ad helping the ratings of FOX, NBC, and CBS has anything to do with the Alaska Governor.

  3. Where did she get the $500,000 to pay for this? Perhaps another investigation in Alaska is in order?

  4. And to think if it had been campaign contributions, you could have wasted that 500K on clothes you’d wear once or twice instead, Sarah.

    You reap what you sow, you Alaskan Harpy.

  5. You mean the state does not have to pay for my children to travel as well. Dang, I wonder if she still get Per Diem for living in her home and charging the state of Alaska for the use of the same.
