    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.

    This is probably why she resigned when she did.

    This sparked my interest so i read through the comments
    Interesting that Coles could announch back in April the creation of the Defence fund but didnt talk to Palin about it until July. Despite the MSN play it recieved and reports of its creation to help Palin pay for legal bills.

    Well see how this plays out

    To many times I heard someone crying wolf about Palin.
    Conveniently they didn't show the evidence...

    There is a good reason this stuff isn't major news.

    EDIT: http://alaskareport.com/index.htm Dude, what kind of news site is that???

    I'll reserve my judgment until a major news source reports.

    Your probably right if Orly can file a lawsuit and then produce evidence which collapsed immediately when examined.
    Thought again ironicly the Main stream media did give play to her claims on Obamas kenyas Birth certificate.

    I did post two disclaimers on the source for the story.
    Well see when they submitt evidence to back there clamins of bribery.

    The OP article sounds pretty biased, so I'll wait until a major news source covers this.

    What disgrace?

    Honestly, with all the frivolous and warrantless accusations headed Palin's way you would think she was Obama.

    This is a private suit and is in no way a criminal charge of any kind. This is basically meaningless at this point.

    Only Palin, can we lock her in a cage and never let her out?
