$urprise! Who's doing stuff behind $arah Palin's back?
$arah Palin was shocked to find out that an official legal fund, called The Alaska Fund Trust, was launched to solicit donations to pay the governor's, her family's and her employees legal bills! $he knew nothing about it.
The trustee of the AFT, Kristan Cole, real estate professional, chair of the Board of Agriculture and Conservation (formerly known as the Agricultural Revolving Loan Fund Board), member of the Royalty Gas and Development board, wife of Brad Cole, who's a member of the Real Estate Commission, former beauty queen and daughter of a convicted embezzler, broke the news to the governor yesterday:
"The first and only time I have spoken with the Governor about the Trust was yesterday to alert her that I was responding to this violation of the law and leak of preliminary and confidential materials from the complainant."
According to Meg Stapleton's statement to the Associated Press, $arah Palin must have had an inkling about the Trust:
"The continuing generosity of Alaskans and Americans is overwhelming as many reach out to assist Governor Sarah Palin and her family with their legal bills.
However, the official legal defense fund for Governor Sarah Palin has not been formed and the Governor cannot accept monies for those obligations from any other entity than the one in formation. Numerous federal and state laws to need to be abided by and the official legal defense fund will have very strict donation guidelines.
We thank everyone interested in helping the Governor. The best way to assist her will be through this official fund which will launch later this month."
Palin Family Spokesperson
Spokesperson means she speaks on behalf of $arah and her family, no? A mouthpiece, as if the governor or her family were uttering the words themselves...
SarahPac is authorized by $arah Palin. From the website:
Who is behind SarahPac?
Gov. Sarah Palin believes all Americans must work together for the future, regardless of their party affiliation. Gov. Palin is the honorary chair of SarahPac, and its supporters are Republicans, Democrats, Independents, and those unaffiliated with any political party.
SarahPac solicits donations to the Alaska Fund Trust.
A legal document, the Alaska Fund Trust Agreement, has a whole paragraph regarding successor trustees, using $arah Palin's name in big capitals:
In the event that the original named Trustee herein shall desire at any time to be relieved of his duties herein, said Trustee may resign by written notice to SARAH PALIN, who may appoint a successor Trustee with the qualifications set forth in paragraph 4 above. In addition, SARAH PALIN shall have the same power to appoint a substitute Trustee in the event of the death, incapacity, or failure to act in accordance with the terms of this instrument of any Trustee. In the event of SARAH PALIN's inability to act as a result of incapacity or other reasonable cause, the proper legal representative of SARAH PALIN shall have the right and authority to seek the appointment of a substitute Trustee.
Wow! Kristan Cole put the governor's name in BIG CAPITALS in a legal document without any consultation with the governor???
So many things going on behind $arah Palin's back: the Trust, her spokesperson speaking, her SarahPac asking for money to be given to the official legal fund...
Bad, bad people!
