The Campaign To Bankrupt The Palin Family
Redstate ^ | March 24, 2009 | Martin Knight

Posted on 03/25/2009 12:54:31 AM PDT by SolidWood

From just September till now, Sarah Palin has accumulated a personal dept of over $500,000 in legal fees defending herself against fake/false/frivolous ethics charges. That’s Five Hundred Thousand Dollars.

A group of Alaska liberals, with the apparent cooperation of members of the Alaska Democratic Party have been filing ethics charge after ethics charge against Sarah Palin. The aim? Not to get her impeached and booted from office, because every single one of the charges are frivolous, baseless and even fairly deranged - one was even filed in the name of a soap opera character - but something far more personal.

These people want to bankrupt the Palins and leave them destitute. They want to empty their bank accounts so that they cannot afford the basics and necessities of life after Governor Palin leaves office.

With the exception of the partisan ethics complaint filed against Palin because her husband (a private citizen) made it clear (as was his right) that he didn’t think a policeman (now a hero to liberals) who used a taser on a ten year old child should continue to keep his gun and badge, all of these ethics charges were filed after John McCain tapped her to be his Vice-President.

David Bonoir, as the House Democratic Whip pioneered this tactic in the mid-1990s after the Gingrich Revolution swept Republicans to their first Majority in forty years. Immediately after Congress resumed, Bonoir began filing ethics complaints - frivolous, partisan complaints that even Democratic members of the ethics committee mostly laughed away - against Newt Gingrich on a weekly basis, week after week like clockwork and sending out press releases to friendly press outlets.

You need strong nerves to read this. This is nothing but terrorism. Sarah should call for our help, I for one will give even my last penny to her.

This should be covered by the state, not her personally.

The left is absolutely transparent, and just as childish. If Gov. Palin were as uneducated, as illiterate, as unsophisticated, etc. as they make her out to be, they wouldn’t waste so much time trying to ruin her life.

They had a lot of nerve attacking her in the manner they did, regarding experience, when their candidate, now President cannot utter a complete sentence without visual aid.

This is what happened to the Clintons. Remember when they left office and we were all mocking them because they had zero assets, owed millions in legal fees and their friends had to buy them a house?

Lets hope there’s still an economy to speak off when Palin leaves office, so she can make some cash too. Clinton made a mint on the speaking circuit, but that institutional money went kaput in ‘08 stock market bust.

My guess is with establishing a legal defense fund.

But then it becomes Clintonese'

But if they did it, how many Sarah Supporters would send her 5, 10, or 100 bucks....

The Palin's IMHO would have a 1/2 million in no time.....

Disgusting.

Every Alaskan should know the names, numbers and addresses of these @ssholes. You know, so that they can file numerous, face-to-face ethics charges.

It isn't childish. Lillian Hellman, the Communist playwright authoress of The Children's Hour and other COMINTERN-era literary propaganda, did it to Mary McCarthy, who wrote The Group about Hellman's sapphic coed coterie. Johnny Carson had McCarthy on The Tonight Show and asked her point-blank if she thought Hellman lied, and McCarthy replied more truthfully than diplomatically that Hellman lied even when she used words like "and" and "the". (That is what Communist propagandists do.)

Hellman sued, and kept the lawsuit in discovery until McCarthy filed for personal bankruptcy. Then Hellman dropped the suit.

Instead of the State picking up the tab, Alaska should charge the individual filing the complaint for the costs incurred by Palin and the State when a complaint is found to be false.

Force them to post a bond in order to file the complaint.

Palin should begin to sue everyone of the individuals filing the complaints.

Ironic as hell, given your FReeper page about government harrassing people, troll.

Yes I checked your signup date.

Regardless of that, how's that astroturf taste?

If these charges involve her conduct as governor then why shouldn’t the state of Alaska pay for her legal defense?

I presume you labored (or perhaps that is still labor) under an all-consuming Bush Derangement Syndrome, too. It grows more obvious daily that liberalism really is a mental disease. Best wishes for a full recovery (but I doubt it will happen, given the cant you preach).

It's got Axelrod's name written all over it...his method of dealing with potential political threats to his clients is to knock them out of the running before they even start.

Dirty, Chicago-style bare-knuckle, personal assaults on the individual, not on his or her record or policies.

What office have you run for? Have you ever been elected? Or are you a keyboard commando?

After they take down Sarah and silence her, who will stand with you when the full force of soros funded goons turn their attention to you? Or would they never bother because you are a coward who hides behind a keyboard?

Maybe they wouldn’t bother because you are one of the soros paid goons?

I'll never forget how, at her GOP convention speech, her teleprompter suddenly went haywire and how she began winging it quite successfully.

Palin's teleprompter broke: speech was from memory

The problem, if you want to call it that, is that Sarah wouldn't burden the taxpayers of her state with a debt incurred because of these continuing charges.

She has way too much class for that.

Sure she is cute, but is this what it takes to perform her duties. Having this idiot one step away from the Presidency would have the rest of the world enraged as this woman doesn’t even have an understanding of basic geology.

Ray, I would just shut up about Governor Palin and go away if you really believe the things you say on your personal page.

Gingrich should have file a countermanding ethics complaint against Bonior: Filing false charges of wrong doing.

Sarah should do the same thing in the legislature and in civil court. "Barratry" the filing of false lawsuits is a civil crime but an attorney can lose a license over it.

"we were all mocking them because they had zero assets"

Did you forget about the Clinton Legal Defense Fund that essentially paid for all of the representation they got? Did you also forget that they never paid taxes on this imputed income?

Broke? Owing millions?

Hardly.

I'm sorry I stopped reading after the blatant lie in the first sentence.

Her husband has had an endorsement with Artic Cat for years. The complaint claims she advertised for them by wearing the clothes.

You either have no idea what you are talking about or you are purposely misleading. Either way I don't have time to read the rest of it.

OK been there. Pretty much like going to real world mudflats

But you seem to be really proud of that nasty little website

No you are nothing but a troll.

So you have registered 2002, but didn't feel the need to post until October 2008, go into hiding for two months, and then start attacking Palin?

6 years lurking? Puleeeeze. You know... you can read the articles also without registering. LOL.

The more proximate word in describing yourself is “idiot.”
