    Default Ethics violation #12 filed against Sarah Palin



    Spring is springing here on the Last Frontier, and with it pops up a brand new ethics complaint against the governor. For those of you keeping score at home, that makes twelve ethics complaints in all. That number, of course, includes the one Palin filed against herself last fall so the Troopergate investigation could be overseen by the governor-appointed personnel board, instead of leaving it solely to those rogue, mavericky legislators in Juneau.

    The complaint will be filed this afternoon asserting that Palin's involvement with SarahPAC constitutes "outside employment" and "misuse of official position."

    Anchorage resident Sondra Tompkins, child disability advocate and mother of a special needs child, is filing the complaint after observing Governor Palin repeatedly display "a pattern of unethical behavior." Sondra believes that the tipping point for her was Sarah Palin's most recent abdication of her role as Governor and apparent conflict-of-interest when she spoke at two outside events in Indiana rather than work with the Alaska Legislature during the most critical time, the end of the session.

    The complaint alleges:

    a) Governor Palin has entered into a contract outside of her official duties with the donors, employees, partners and any or all other participants involved in SarahPAC.

    b) The recent partisan trip to Indiana by the Governor was purely to benefit personal interests, had no benefit for the State of Alaska and was in direct conflict with her official duties.

    c) The Governor left the State to participate in these events during the most critical end-of-session Legislative activities, at a time where the legislators themselves are not permitted to leave

    Tompkins is also one of the growing number of disgrunteld Republican voters who find themselves disillusioned with the current administration.

    Here's the link to the complaint. http://www.themudflats.net/wp-conten...nttompkins.doc It's not the most well-written or logical one I've read, but makes some good points (her abandoning her duties to attend a partisan event to support her bid for a future job instead of fulfilling the responsibilites associated with her current one). I think it'll be thrown out, but it will push her crazee buttons.

    So the 'alleged champion of special needs' Sarah Palin is having an ethics complaint filed against her by an advocate for children with special needs. Perfect.

    Tompkins is also a Republican.

    I wonder how Palin will try to assualt Tompkins' character? She's not a librul, terrorist, pajama-clad blogger, or abortionist, so she must be an elitist bitter jellus fatty.

    Palin, and the hardcore conservatives, will do what they always do with more moderate Republicans. They'll say people like Tompkins are what's wrong with the party and she needs to be run off. They said the same about McCain after the election.

    Are ethics complaints against Palin going to become a monthly event? Seems like it at this rate. Palin must know she won't be able to run for re-election in 2010.

    A guy who was interviewing WAR said Tompkins was a "drive-by terrorist". Knew they had to get one of those words in there!

    We can only hope. However, her personality disorder is such that she will not attempt to rein in her unethical acts; she'll just keep blaming others for noticing them. She's really quite mentally ill.
