From Fox Dallas Ft. Worth:
Meghan Stapleton is the spokeswoman for Palin's political action committee, SarahPAC. Stapleton says in an e-mail to The Associated Press that this Web site is not an official legal defense fund.
Because of that, neither Palin nor her attorney can accept money from it. Instead, a proper legal defense fund will soon be set up which adheres to state and federal laws.
Clayton Paslay of Burleson, Texas, says his Web site had collected more than $1,300 in its first day of operation. He says he's working with Palin's lawyer to make sure the donations can be given legally.
