The Libs, not content to defeat Sarah Palin at the Ballot Box, must crush her once and for all by death from a thousand papercuts. Politico has the story, and some of the details of the Libs attempts to “get” Palin are patently ridiculous:
The Alaska Fund Trust will be run by longtime Palin friend and Wasilla native Kristan Cole. The Republican governor owes more than $500,000 in legal bills, but donations to the fund will be capped at $150, according to a release.
“Over the past months it became increasingly clear that supporters of Gov. Palin needed to help defend against the onslaught of frivolous attacks against her. 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,” Cole said.
In addition to the unusually low, self-imposed donation cap, the fund will also voluntarily disclose contributor names and dollar amounts.
“We have created one of the most restrictive and transparent legal funds in history,” Cole said.
Palin has been hit with numerous ethics complaints from citizens of her state. The latest came Wednesday, when an Anchorage woman complained that Palin violated state ethics rules by using funds from her political action committee to attend a right to life rally in Indiana.
Earlier this month the conservative group Free American Citizens set up an unaffiliated fund that billed itself as the governor’s official legal defense fund. Palin aides had to ask the group to cease promoting the unaffiliated fund.
Stay classy, Democrats. Stay Classy.
