Palin establishes official Legal Defense Fund

Great news! I know this is a couple days old but I wanted to publish it anyway. Palin finally set up an official legal defense fund to fight the frivolous ethics complaints filed against her by left wing trolls.

Here is the website for the Alaska Fund Trust.

There really is no basis to these complaints. Everyone knows it, including the people filing them. The ONLY reason they're filing them is so they can say "Palin has more ethics complaints filed against her than any other Governor" when she runs for re-election. They're playing very dirty politics right now. Hopefully her defense fund can put a stop to them.

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has established a legal defense fund to help pay off more than $500,000 of debt caused by legal fees, the fund's trustee said today.

The Alaska Fund Trust will take donations to pay legal expenses incurred by the former Republican vice presidential candidate, her family and staff members. Ethics complaints against Palin have cost Alaska more than $1 million in taxpayer dollars, as well as $500,000 of Palin's personal money, according to the fund's Internet site.

"Over the past months it became increasingly clear that supporters of Governor Palin needed to help defend against the onslaught of frivolous attacks against her," the fund's trustee, Kristan Cole, said in a statement. "These baseless accusations are designed to inhibit her ability to focus on the issues Alaskans truly care about and force massive personal debt on her and her family."

The fund calls itself "one of the most restrictive and transparent" in history. It caps contributions at $150, allows only individuals to donate and bars money from federal and state lobbyists, as well as non-citizens.

Politico reports that the latest complaint against Palin came Wednesday, when an Anchorage woman accused Palin of using money from her political action committee, SarahPAC, to attend a right-to-life banquet in Indiana.
