Defense fund update

A private citizen launched a fundraising effort for Palin's legal defense fund. Meg Stapleton reported that Palin cannot accept any of that money because it is not an "official" legal defense fund. The statement, though, gave us confirmation that the official fund will be established soon.

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.
