BTW - Believing Palin is too much a lightweight for the job of Prez isn't an attack, it's an opinion based on her short and spotty political record, lack of knowledge in areas important to the presidency
With an attitude like that, I hope your happy with the alternative...I believe his name is Barack.
College - Quit four universities
Gee Bob, your such an expert on universities, and come off as a silver spooned snob, how did you pay for your schooling? She worked her way through. She doesn't really elaborate on finishing school in "Going Rogue"
, but she has a degree for her efforts. Without any experience in Alaska, your an expert on her, how?
Alaska Resources Board - Quit after 10 months
You probably didn't know the word VECO before Palin started uncovering the corruption - and you have no idea how corupt the system was before she blew a lot of redhot items out of the water Here is a FR link
Don't know if you've read the book, "Going Rogue"
, but maybe you try from page 92 to 100. Oh that's right, you don't want to hear from her; nevermind.
Governor - Quit after 2 years
It's a long, tiring argument, but for you Bob, shall run it one more time...
Straight from C4P...
Lets clear something up right now.
Its been suggested that Gov. Palin chose to use her personal counsel to defend herself instead of using the Attorney General or the Department of Law, and therefore its her own fault that she has accumulated over half a million dollars in legal debt.
That is complete balderdash.
The governor cannot use the AG to defend herself against ethics complaints. The AG is responsible for prosecuting
violations of the law. But in the case of the governor and ethics complaints, the AG is removed from doing so by the law,
and an independent counsel (or investigator) is contracted by the Personnel Board to act in place of the AG:
AS 39.52.310. Complaints
(c) If a complaint alleges a violation of AS 39.52.110 - 39.52.190
by the governor, lieutenant governor, or the attorney general, the matter shall be referred to the personnel board....The personnel board shall retain independent counsel who shall act in the place of the attorney general
under (d) - (i) of this section, AS 39.52.320 - 39.52.350,
(c) and (d). Notwithstanding AS 36.30.015
(d), the personnel board may contract for or hire independent counsel under this subsection without notifying or securing the approval of the Department of Law.
By definition, an ethics violation is elevating a personal interest above ones state interest and duties. The government cannot defend a public official on an allegation that he/she violated state law in his/her personal capacity. In fact, it would probably be an ethics violation for the governor to use a state AG to defend her personal interests because that would constitute a misuse of state resources for personal gain. (However, that doesnt preclude the possibility that the state could later indemnify a public official, if that is deemed lawful.)
So, yes, Gov. Palin must pay for her personal legal defense, and each allegation costs her money. The imbecilic ankle-biters smugly ask, If she didnt do anything wrong, why does she need legal counsel?
End of C4P
Sarah explains the issue in "Going Rogue"
on pages 363 to 378.
Your accusations hold as much water as saying -
"Hey Bob, Did you quit California?"
Or asking, "How's that wife beating going?"
