Full discolsure that alaskareport is very heavily anti republican paper. So take the news article with a large grain of salt. If the charges are proven in a court of law though it could explain her resignation. The other snipet was the legal defence fund. Primarly the investigation ongoing which was "leaked" to the press. Ironicly though a press release form Cole denies any involvement in the legal fund until after the investigation was triggered. Also point out the interesting co-incidence with Palins "death panel" story grabbing the headlines instead of the ethics complaint. Again there are reservations about the source.
