Leftists not straight when it comes to Palin

You’ve got to hand it to them. The Democrats and radical lefties know how to hit below the belt. For the umpteenth time in a long string of dismissed complaints, a leaked investigative memo details that soon to be ex-Governor Palin may have traded on her influence for personal gain.

The report is so laughably shoddy and lacking in common sense. It lacks two important things: One, any mention of what Palin may have traded (in kind) for contributions to the defense fund. Instead, the report states that a normal individual wouldnt be able to raise money like that and “Were it not for the fact that she is governor and a national political figure, it is unlikely that many citizens would donate money to her legal defense fund.” Can you say CLINTON LEGAL DEFENSE FUND???


So, not even an accusation of what may have been done in kind, simply the fact that private individuals are contributing to a legal defense fund for Palin to help her dismiss these complaints is enough to be an ethics violation. Lawyers from many sources are calling the finding crazy. As loony as many of Palins detractors is more like it. If it were, by the most infinitesimally small chance, upheld, no governor would be able to defend themselves against ethic complaints. Every politician has to raise money to hire a lawyer.

Secondly, the only penalty that might come about for this so-called ethics abuse?  In the words of investigator Thomas Daniel: Stop taking the money. Not even a recommendation for a formal hearing. My guess? This ridiculous report, which may not even have been filed yet, just leaked from some yakkety yak liberal, wouldnt stand the light of day in a hearing. Thats why he doesnt want it to get there.

If American citizens want to contribute to Palins Legal Defense, whos to say they cannot? Americans speak with their wallets. Some estimates say the fund has raised $500,000 so far. Thats a lot of voice some Democrats and Lefties apparently dont like.
