More on this story as it develops…

update:  Via the Anchorage Daily News on October 10, 2008, Governor Palin’s attorney thinks we are stupid…

but first, with emphasis added:

the state’s executive branch ethics act … says that “each public officer holds office as a public trust, and any effort to benefit a personal or financial interest through official action is a violation of that trust.”

and Palin’s attorney, Thomas Van Flein says:

Van Flein says Branchflower’s finding that Palin violated the ethics act is flawed because she received no monetary benefit from whatever actions she and her husband are accused of. He cited several prior ethics investigations.

“The common thread of all of these Ethics Act cases is money and the use of a government position to personally gain,” Van Flein’s statement says.

“Here, there is no accusation, no finding and no facts that money or financial gain to the Governor was involved in the decision to remove Monegan,” the governor’s attorney says. “There can be no ethics violations under these circumstances.”

one more time: The Ethics Act says “personal OR financial interest”

update: Sarah Palin thinks we are all morons.

    Fighting two wars, 10 trillion dollars in debt, borders wide open, world economy absolutely collapsing, and this is what concerns you?

  5. This is one of the things that concerns me. The selection of Sarah Palin as the veep candidate is an example of McCain’s impulsive decision-making, his apparent failure to perform an adequate investigation and/or an unholy confidence in his ability to spin unethical behavior to the American people.

    I think that we need ethical leaders who make careful decisions if we expect to end the wars, secure our borders and manage our economy. The selection of Sarah Palin as the veep candidate, in my opinion, is another reason, in a long line of reasons, about why John McCain is unfit for the presidency of the United States.

  6. Pat says:

    rjjrdq it should concern everyone! We’ve had eight years of Bush running a fascist government and we don’t need eight more years of it with Palin in the #2 seat.

    Or is this exactly what represents your desire for a potential president — one who uses his position/power for personal axes to grind?

  7. Pat says:

    I agree with twit, about McCain’s poor judgment, acting on impulse and without good advisement. It’s a prelude to what the Presidency could end up being.

    And it scares the bejeebers out of me.

  8. rjjrdq says:

    For the record, I’m not a McCain supporter, Tom Tancredo, Duncan Hunter or Mitt Romney would have been more palatble choices. To be honest, I can’t see how in the world this guy got the nomination…

  9. I felt the same way about John Kerry in 2004.
