Obama’s Alaskan Toadies aren’t going to quit until Sarah is gone. During the election, she made them look like the Commie idiots that they are and the “messiah” wants his revenge. There seems to be a lot of white boys in Alaska who are looking for jobs in BO’s administration that are willing to do ANYTHING for him. ANYTHING.

This is getting so old and tiresome, how can anyone even take these people seriously anymore? Most of the people filing these complaints don’t have jobs, they describe themselves as community organizers or social activists. Well, even organizers and activists have to eat, pay rent, put gas in their cars. It’s long over due that someone up there in Alaska start investigating these people, go all the way back, who are their parents, any legal issues, any tax problems, any substance abuse problems, any psychiatric issues (my guess is a big yes to that one,) where does their money come from (Axelrod and or Soros is my guess,) anything at all. These aren’t private citizens any more, they have deliberately sought the spotlight, put their names out there, and are openly trying to influence the political process, and manipulate the legal system as well.

Look for yet another ethics complaint, because Palin once again wore her Arctic Cat gear to an event over the weekend.

The Left is giving me a hearty laugh this evening. These cretins actually walk upright like real human beings. It’s just that when their mouth moves, I’m sure I’m hearing Soros say the words.

Palin and Bachmann in 2012 because it takes TWO women to clean the House and the Senate.

Everything you see on the news is orchestrated....this swine flu story - orchestrated for BO to get his way.
The left owns the media, Hollywood, and the newspapers. The left hates talk radio, FOX News and the Internet because they can't control them.

From Sarah, to the Oh BO shook the hand of a man who might have died of the Swine Flu, are ALL Orchestrated. If they want people to stop focusing on how sorry and power hungry their president is ...they have to find a way to get the focus off of him and place the story on something like let's say - Bush and Cheney may be prosecuted for war crimes? Swine flu could be a pandemic? Sarah Palin is committing ethics violations?

Are you being sarcastic?

If so, are you aware that there is a legion of lawyers up there who have trumped up over 300 ethics charges? This is exactly what they did to Stevens, all charges, of course, now dropped that they stole his seat with these trumped-up charges. Did you convict Stevens before he had his day in court, too, as you are doing Palin?

THIS is what our political system has come to: communist-style intimidation and annihilation of political opponents.

Conservatives are being disenfranchised. If you are being sarcastic, you need to wake up and see what is happening, otherwise, you deserve to be disenfranchised.

They are paid by Axelrod and Soros. I just wish I can prove it, but its very obvious who are funding these people.

Someone's paying for it. Too bad there are no hungry journalists looking to make their names investigating a REAL scandal.

I bet Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, or Greta would be happy to find out who are funding these people. I don’t believe for a second that these people woke up one day and decided to file ethics charge after ethics charge. I’ve read what these idiots say, they are not smart enough to come up with this on their own. Someone, or people, are telling them to do this, and my bet is on Axelrod and Rahm “Dead fish” Emmanuel. They can see if there were any large sums of money deposited into these people’s accounts recently, large sums that cannot be easily explained. These are all community organizers being told to do whatever it takes to bankrupt her

Kim Chatman to the right... a democrap election worker.

Election worker Kim Chatman, right, Jennifer Allen, with the Mark Begich campaign, election workers Nancy Marx, and Carolyn DiPaul, left, discuss a questioned ballot at the Division of Election office in Anchorage, Alaska, Tuesday Nov. 11, 2008. More than 90,000 question and absentee ballots will be counted on Wednesday in a close U.S. Senate and House race.

I hope that there is an outpour of generosity among Americans donating to the Alaska Fund Trust. We can't let the scum get away with this. This is a crying injustice.

Doesn’t the money that we donate go to the the governor who needs it next if there is money left? What if Sarah does not need all the money and a couple million is left in the balance. If a Democratic Governor were to win the state sometime in the 2015 range, does he or she get to use the money for their legal problems? If this is just for Sarah I think giving the max (more than 150 though...too low) would be awesome, but if you answer that a Democrat someday could use the money, that is concerning...Does it you? Or is this not a big deal?

“but if you answer that a Democrat someday could use the money, that is concerning...Does it you? Or is this not a big deal?”

This is from the Alaska Fund Trust website:

10. Where does the unspent money go?

Once the purposes of the Trust no longer exist, the Trustee, in her sole discretion, will donate unspent funds to qualified 501 (c)(3) organizations.

My note: definition of 501(c)(3) — Religious, Educational, Charitable, Scientific, Literary, Testing for Public Safety, to Foster National or International Amateur Sports Competition, or Prevention of Cruelty to Children or Animals Organizations

Whether you support Palin politically or not, just remember, if this kind of tactic is allowed to take down an honorable woman like Sarah Palin, who will be the next target of the Axelrod machine?

"How much more absurd can these ankle biting complaints become?"

This is a reprise of what that odious piece of sewage David Bonior (Dem rat turd Michigan)did to Newt Gingrich.

Bonior filed something like 35 ethics complaints against Gingrich and all but one was thrown out.

The goal of course was to cost Gingrich time and money and disrupt his actions as speaker.

The chicken Republicans should have filed and ethics complaint against Bonior and run his commie butt out of the House.

Alaskan female ankle-biters. In this latest case, Kim Chatman is an Alaskan Dem operative who worked on the Begich campaign.

Is it orchestrated from outside the state? You decide. I think it is.

One other thing I forgot to mention, Linda Biegel aka 'Celtic Diva' is one of the more well-known ankle biters up there. She was the official Alaskan blogger for either the DNC's or the Obama campaign's website...can't remember which one.

The Levi Johnston stuff was a non-story until Sherry Johnston got a high-priced attorney, Rex Butler. He is an Obama donor and was quoted on the Obama website during the campaign insinuating that Palin is a racist.

Another coincidence? Sure....

It depends on which ones you’re referencing. There’s the Troopergate thing, and the personal use of state funds thing, and then this thing — there’s different groups involved in each.

She’ll energize conservatives. You need more than conservatives to win. Just like Dems need more than hardcore liberals.

I’d vote for Palin over Obama every day of the week and twice on Sunday, but I remain extremely unconvinced that she could put together a winning coalition.

That being said, a lot can change in 3 years, but I don’t see it right now.

Governor Palin can’t pay her legal bills but this woman can afford a high priced attorney? Who is paying him? If we find that out, we might solve the riddle.
