Is Sarah Palin untouchable?
State election regulators have rejected a complaint that Gov. Sarah Palin broke the law last year when she took a position on a controversial ballot initiative on mining.
The Alaska Public Offices Commission issued a written order Friday saying that "it is concerned with the free speech implications of a ruling that attempts to regulate what the Governor can say." The decision was unanimous, according to APOC chairwoman Elizabeth Hickerson.
Palin appointed all four of the APOC commissioners: two Democrats and two Republicans.
The ethics complaint against Sarah Palin filed by Sondra Tompkins was dismissed by the Personnel Board.
I visited The Personnel Board's webpage and had a look at the minutes of their meetings. On October 31, 2008, the following went on record:
Board Member Tamagni asked Assistant AG Dave Jones if the Board had the authority to assess fees for frivolous complaints. Mr. Jones stated he would research the question and report back to the Board.
We know that there isn't a single person in Alaska NOT appointed by the governor to look into Sarah Palin's violations and come to an impartial conclusion.
We can only hope that the Feds and the IRS are taking an interest in some of Sarah Palin's affairs, such as the house that Todd built, her children's travel expenses, Pebble mine, Dairygate and maybe other stuff we haven't found out yet...
