$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."

Meghan Stapleton
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!

hmmmmm? How on earth did polite Sarah know that she had to write "Thank You" notes to these guys for their donations to the Alaska Fund Trust if she didn't know it existed in the first place?

Thanks to eyeonyou over at Progressive Alaska.

Donation prompts hand-written Palin thank you

When Alaskan Mark Bowers made his donation to the Alaska Fund Trust, he didn't expect to receive a hand-written thank-you note from Gov. Sarah Palin. But the governor so appreciated his gift to the legal defense fund that she sent him a very personal note of thanks. Sarah's Web Brigade has the full story.

Update: As our commenters have reported, Gov. Palin is apparently hand-writing thank-you notes to many, if not all, donors to the legal defense fund. All the more reason to make your $150 contribution now. Someday you can show your grandkids that the first woman to be elected president of the U.S. sent you a personal message "back when."

I received a thank you note as well!

I just went out and got my mail, and I received a Thank You card also. Numerous people at Team Sarah and Conservatives4Palin have reported receiving cards today.

It's not just him, everyone is getting a personal signed letter.

It's very gracious of her, something that distinguihses the Gov. from the rest of the field but I am worried this might too much of her time. :)

Kristan Cole:

"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." come that Sarah Palin was sending out handwritten "thank you" notes to a lot of people who donated to the Alaskan Trust Fund?

How can Sarah do this if she has never spoken to the people from the fund? Or has Sarah supernatural powers?

Thankfully, Sarah's faithful followers have proudly spread the evidence all over the internet - giving us enough time to save it all:

The handwritten thank you notes are hilarious! I hope this really kinks up her web of lies. She really thinks reality is whatever she says it is - the crazy.

This is why she hasn't had time to actually govern...too busy writing thank-you notes to Texans et al.

Palin is a CRAZY CROOK!

Another highly interesting "thank you note":

From the comment down below on this website...

....we know that the "thank you note" was written in response to a donation for the Alaskan Fund Trust.

I got one on May 26 for the donation and also for my work on a POTUS package. I'm still on cloud 9! I didn't blog about it yet, because I have a letter to the editor outstanding with the Frontiersman and I want that to hit first. But I will be posting about it soon.

Thanks to eyeonyou over at Progressive Alaska.

No thanks needed, happy to get the word out, along with the proof that Sarah and her pals are liars!

Thanks to EyeOnYou - I thanked you also on PA - as well as many other bloggers.

Look, she's done. Her political career is over. Her base is not growing - she's less appealing. She's proven she has ethical challenges. She's proven to have bad judgment and appoint BFFs to jobs.

She has no sense of humor. She is really, basically, stupid. She doesn't read (or can't?), she isn't curious intellectually. (Went through 8 years of intellectual vacuum recently, thanks never again!)

She has a horrible voice and an abrasive personality. She has a sense of entitlement that is not deserved.

She plays with the Law.

Her whole being is based upon being "liked". But she is a very unlikable person.

People have criticized Bush's Presidency but many people have also stated that in person, he is a very likable man (sorry no personal knowledge).

I have never heard anyone say that $P is a nice, decent, honest person. No one really comments on her personally. It's like her sole persona is $P! The world revolves around her, in her little mentally impaired mind.

Surprise - it doesn't! We don't want or need her!

Thank you Regina - for being one of those great individuals who saw a need and gave us a blog. I know you have taken hits and been attacked for your blog. I appreciate your continuing to dig and report -

Like the vampire, $P dies in sunlight.
