re: So you have registered 2002, but didn't feel the need to post until October 2008)))

I've come across a few of those, who talk trolly but have long "histories" on FR. You gotta figure how many of life's losers Soros has hired to troll the net. FR is an effective site, it's no tinfoil to think that we are a constant target.

I’d bet we have an Alaskan notary FReeper. Maybe we can post a request on the Alaska board.

I don't think that her PAC covers this.

She already said that she intends to create a legal fund specifically for this purpose. I guess it's in the making. Hopefully we will be able to help her soon.

Here's one of the complaints:

Linda Kellen Biegel, better known as blogger "Celtic Diva," is filing an ethics complaint with the Attorney General today against Governor Sarah Palin. The complaint alleges a conflict of interest when Governor Palin wore specially designed snow-machine gear advertising her husband Todd's biggest Iron Dog sponsor, Arctic Cat Inc. She did so while acting in her official capacity as Governor of the State of Alaska and official starter of the Iron Dog Snow Machine Race.

Not only was she well aware that there would be extensive Alaska media coverage, the Palins also knew that international magazine Sports Illustrated was coming to do a story on Todd.

Biegel provides links to the Palins' APOC Financial Disclosure Statements for the last two years, which reveal the thousands of dollars Todd Palin receives in sponsorship benefits from Arctic Cat. While there is nothing illegal in actually receiving sponsorship money, this makes the Governor's wearing of Arctic Cat gear while representing Alaska the equivalent of a walking billboard, providing benefits to a private company from whom she and her family derive income.

The complaint claims Governor Palin violated of AS39.52.120 of the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Act, Misuse of official position:

(A) A public officer may not use, or attempt to use, an official position for personal gain, and may not intentionally secure or grant unwarranted benefits or treatment for any person; (3) use state time, property, equipment or other facilities to benefit personal or financial interests

The online version of the complaint can be found RIGHT HERE.

What do you want? What do you mean by “proof”? There are dozens of frivolous “ethics complaints” filed against Palin. Look up on FR search or google about all these ridiculous complaints. On the Governor’s office site there are statements against them.

Regarding the lawyer debt... that’s what Governor Palin said during her Lincoln Day adress March 20. She also said that she intends to create a legal fund to pay her legal debt with donations.

I just wanted to see where the idea came from that they wanted to bankrupt her....that that was their goal. I didn’t see one in the article, and the reader should not have to go seeking out their own sources...it should have been stated in the article. I know you didn’t write it, just posted it. I thought I may have missed something. I am aware of all the charges they are attempting to bring against her. I just think that any article that is accusatory needs a source to back it. I am not defending them, but it does not help our side if we just fling accusations.

I am not doubting that it is hurting them financially or even that the goal of the other side is to bankrupt them...just wanted to see if we could prove what their motive was.

Excerpt:

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.

This is the politics of personal destruction at its most reprehensible … and these people need to have their names made public and turned to mud in Alaska and all over America. They need to have themselves mired in court and forced to pay hundreds upon hundreds of thousands in attorney’s fees defending themselves against charges of depriving the people of Alaska of the services of their governor because of nothing more than hate.

I knew the Left’s tactics were ugly, but this … this is beyond wrong, this is pure

Sarah needs our support.

How should it be "proved"?

The rats filing the lawsuits will hardly admit their motive.

The lame lawsuits are there, and the massive debt is there... from these two facts we can deduct that the purpose of these obviously nonsensical lawsuits is to bankrupt her (plus harrassing her politically).

See Palin's own words:

What’s next? Are they going to go after her because she has a special needs child that they figure is somehow a drain on the State? She’s got my support but the daily dem/media harping on Gov. Palin does have an effect. Reminds me of the bitter public fight between Hamilton and Burr.

Maybe CONSERVATIVES in ALASKA could start filing lawsuits against the ones who are filing lawsuits against PALIN, for mental anxiety and stress due to their harassment of Palin. At a million dollars a whack. If I lived in ALASKA I would do it, because I’ve had enough of the COMMUNIST BUZZHEADS! Any legal secretary knows how to type a brief for filing, and by law a person can act as their own lawyer...WHY NOT.

How did the $500,000 build up if the charges are obviously false? Why does she have to do anything if the accusors can’t make a case?

I’m not looking for a defense of Sarah here because I think Sarah is a good, careful person. I’m wondering why a person (could be me, I suppose) must pay people to help them defend against things that are obviously false.

Perhaps someone can take a simple example and explain how it progresses to the point where a lawyer is needed.

The “Troopergate” investigation (probably the costliest) alone cost her $ 95,000.
With now 10 lawsuits 500,000 are quickly reached. 6 have been dismissed, but it costs money to defend, even against false charges.

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.

I think she understands basic geology- she knows that there is a lot of oil available to us if we drill into the ground. I also presume that she understands the difference between Geology and Geography- something that your snarky comment indicates that you do not. Alaska was the second to the last state admitted to the union- you should ask President Obamateur if that makes it the 49th or the 56th state.

Gosh, these people are sick. There is no end to their hatred for Sarah, but that is because they feel threatened by her, by her principles and conservative values. If she was truly an empty suit, if she was a bimbo like the liberals tried to portray her, these campaigns wouldn't happen.

They fear Sarah could unite conservatives, and unite the GOP, so they need to destroy her and they count on the media to help them towards that objective.

For those that are Christians, maybe you will understand what I am about to type. I don’t know Sarah Palin personally, but I recognize certain behavior and beliefs that I think many Americans share with her that are largely missing from many in power.

I was a little frustrated by all the attacks last night and started praying about it. The story of Daniel came to my mind. All the other rulers under Darius tried their best to bring Daniel down. Instead he just kept trusting God and prevailed and received even more favor, Blessing and wisdom under Darius.

And also all the attempts to stone Jesus or throw him off the cliff were thwarted. Jesus continued to walk in love and the shield of faith protected him from everything that was hurled at him until his mission was complete.

I’m not suggesting she is Daniel or Jesus. But what I am suggesting is lift her up during your prayer time. There is nothing more powerful than united faith. We need Godly women and men in power to get this country headed in the right direction. And those politicians need the prayers of believers to keep them from getting discouraged by all these demonic attacks.
