Sarah Palin Ethics Violations
Vanity | 3/11/14 | pgyanke

Posted on 03/11/2014 6:31:01 AM PDT by pgyanke

A friend is challenging me on Sarah Palin's resignation from the Governorship of Alaska. I remember it very clearly that she was being hounded by frivolous ethics complaints but I can't find a list of the complaints nor the results of those complaints.

I remember reading at some point that she was cleared of any wrongdoing at some point but when I do a Google search for "Sarah Palin Ethics Violations" I get a bunch of snarky Huffington Post and other MSM articles from 2010 and before breathlessly celebrating "ethics convictions."

I can't see to locate an article that speaks to the end result of the whole mess. Can you help?


TOPICS: Chit/Chat
KEYWORDS: sarahpalin
Also, I figure my headline should make this article an easy search for future references on the subject. God-willing she runs... we will be answering "friends" on this issue for a while. Thank you in advance.

The smears are all that matter to liberals. Tom DeLay’s partisan conviction has been overturned but to them, he is forever guilty and is still reported as final.

I know that. But there should be an official tally somewhere that shows Sarah Palin: 1, Media: 0

I believe she was cleared as most were frivilous media wannabes.

Why don’t you search for ‘Palin’ on FR?

Yes she was cleared but the liberals had plenty more waiting to be filed. They didn’t need to win in court they just needed to win in the media to keep the sheeple fooled.

Even that would turn up a huge volume of posts. Does anyone here keep a Palin ping list? If so, that person might know where to look.

Here’s an incomplete list from the anchorage paper. That looks like a good source for further research.

I appreciate your attempt but your link pulled up mostly the same articles. Very aged and with no conclusion. The best one was this one: Palin Fends off ethics charges, a Washington Times article from 2009... but there are still more recent articles that talk of convictions.

There were early reports, which the left blogs trumpeted as ‘proof’ of guilt. I’m sure the AP buried this final finding, which clears her.

Altogether, there were 22 or 23 frivolous ethics charges manufactured by the Pete Rouse smear machine in Alaska, and Palin was cleared in all but one very minor complaint, in which she had taken her kids along on a campaign trip and charged the expense to the state. The Palins promptly repaid the $9,000, which was really small potatoes.

That's all they got her for...but in the process she racked up over $600,000 in legal fees, and when she set up a legal defense fund, the Rats attacked it too, leaving her and her family defenseless and threatened with bankruptcy, which was the Rat plan all along.

Amen. Liberals top weapon. A willing press and an idiot, above the fold, consumer of gossip.

It’s unethical for a female or black (or any other “minority”) to support a republican or criticize a democrat.

She did those things (there’s plenty of film) so there is no way she could be cleared of wrongdoing. It’s best to drop this discussion with you friend.

Just tell your friend that there was nothing to it but that it’s just a part of the democrats’ ongoing war on [conservative] women and minorities.

Ask him if he knows why the head of the IRS has to plead the 5th.

she was cleared of any wrongdoing

Remember one thing. To a liberal it's not the evidence that matters, it's the seriousness of the charge.

In the drive by media, you don’t have to get the story right, you just have to get the attacks out there and bury the rest of the details.

It’s been my experience that you probably are not going to convince you friend. When I lived in Wi, there were opponents of Walker who were convinced he was going to jail for who knows what and nothing was going to convince them otherwise

Sarah got the last laugh on that homo asshat who moved into the house next to hers to spy on Bristol and write up every rumor he could scrape up in Wasilla. He went to Hell yesterday.
