Sexy Sarah's Defense Fund Created Illegally! Refunding Donations!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersPolitikSarah Palin


And we're not surprised!

Donors gave $390,000 to a legal defense fund for Sarah Palin before she stepped down as Alaska's Governor, but now they'll be getting their money back.

According to State Personnel Board investigator Timothy Petumenos, the fund was illegal. It was misleadingly described as "official" on the website, which gave people the impression that it was endorsed by Sarah for political purposes.

But technically she didn't do anything too bad! She relied on attorneys to make sure the fund was compliant with the Alaska Executive Branch Act.

Palin's attorney, Thomas Van Flein, said that more than $33,000 has been donated and $87,680 will go toward the debt the trust has incurred including administrative expenses.

What a waste of hard earned donations!

"She supports this process 100 percent, and I think she agreed to this resolution because it was the right thing to do," said Van Flein. "She never instructed anybody to do anything that would not comply with federal law or state law."

On Thursday, another defense fund was set up for Palin as a private citizen to pay off the debt from her legal expenses.

WTF?! Pay for your own shiz!

Due to the ethics probes surrounding her illegal use of state money, Palin has racked up about $500,000 in legal fees.

Eagle River resident Kim Chatman was the person who originally accused the former Governor of misusing her official position and accepting improper gifts.

"I'm ecstatic the truth came out, but I don't understand how they said this was a good faith effort on her part and they're going to blame it on her attorneys," said Chatman. "She's never accountable for anything."

Ha! Not only was she investigated for firing her public safety commissioner, but took nine state-paid trips with her children totaling $8,000.

Some people never learn.

    I am no fan of Palin by any means, but this story is so overblown. Any governor you talk to would not be aware of every campaign law on the books. The people around her should have known better. Paying back $400,000 is a drop in the bucket for her too.

    Like that time when she used State money to fund her new wardrobe? This womans hopeless…

    Jacko pulled a similar stunt when he was getting ready for his big HBO special in '95 when he "collapsed" at rehearsal! He was dragging his heels on that just like his upcoming 50 date London residency at the 02 Arena, of which he already postponed the first few dates!!! Either he's lying or making himself sick, but we're curious to see if he's able to go on!!! Get your money back, ticket holders THEY'RE GONNA LOCK YOU UP AND OTIS IS GONNA WRECK YOUR ASSHOLE! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pedophile Pedophile ..

    Here's a quote from a
    government employee who witnessed a recent inter-action between an elderly woman and an antiwar protester in a Metro station in DC. There were protesters on the train platform handing out pamphlets on the evils of America. I politely declined to take one.

    The elderly woman was behind me getting off the escalator and a young (20-ish) female protester offered her a pamphlet, which she politely declined. The young protester put her hand on the old woman's shoulder as a gesture of friendship and in a very soft
    voice the young lady said, "Lady, don't you care about the children of Iraq ?"

    The old woman looked up at her and said, "Honey, my father died in France during World War II, I lost my husband in Korea , and a son in Vietnam. All three died so you could have the right to stand here and badmouth our country. If you touch me again, I'll stick this umbrella up your ass and open it."

    The real story should be the over 1,000 ficticious law suits filed by moveon.org to take advantage of Alaskan law stating any government official has to defend themselves out of their own pocket, thus forcing and elected officer into resigning or face bankruptcy. Way to go democrats, attack your foe's …just like the framer's invisioned it.

    Perez-you have serious Palin Derangement Syndrome. Stick to covering Lindsay Loonhan, and stay out of politics.

    Re: Prince Von A Hole – Great story!

  17. 17

    At least she is honest, unlike the degenerate in the White House and his idiot regime of Pelosi, Reid, and Bwarny Fwank

  18. 18

    Mario, why don't you post a story about the Sestak scandal? Why don't you post a story about Acorn? Why don't you post a story about Barry Obama getting more money from BP than any other candidate in history? Why don't you post a story about Barry's knowledge of Blago slanging his seat? Why don't you post story after story about an inexperienced racist moron who got elected to be leader of a country he hates. Talk all the shit you want about Palin but no one questions whether she loves America.

    Democrats would vote for Stalin, before they'd vote for a Conservative Republican.

  20. 20

    I am not sure why anybody would care about this story. The environmental President has still failed to do anything about the leak in the gulf…if we do not hold all our leaders accountable. This includes Liberals, not just some conservative shithead, one disagrees with because of some long standing bullshit about inequality due to being a homosexual. Our country is completely fucked and as usual we are trying to find some conservative to blame not realizing that conservative pol and liberal alike are so far removed from the daily life of the average American that they will fuck us every time. CONSERVATIVE = BIG BUSINESS LIBERAL = BIG GOVERNMENT
    neither one helps me and i bet they don't help you either

    fuck this retarded, conartist bitch.

  23. 23

    Keep polishing the Obama turd and trying to suggest that he and the other democrats never do anything wrong while suggesting that all the republicans are sleazy and corrupt… wow, there's some honest reporting ***sarcasm mode***

    Re: so what – YES I would like to know that too! Locker her up and throw away the key!!!

    Sarah was not found guilty of ANY of the lawsuits filed against her. She resigned as governor because she did not want her state and staff to waste time and money in court. The FAR LEFT kept filing in hopes of running her out of politics. If they has left hear alone, she would be governor in Alaska and far from the national stage. Now due to the far left running her out of her governor's job she is more popular and on the national scene than ever. Perez, you are helping her stay in the spotlight by posting this article. Perez, you are known for spreading hate so YOUR opinion helps HER not your liberal causes.

    Re: Bababooee
    Our government has gone rogue and only a handful are being courageous, like NJ's Governor Chris Christie.
    Thank you New Jersey voters. Kudos.
    NEITHER, the Democrats, nor career establishment Republicans (McCain, Romney types) want to stop illegal immigration.
    ALL the legislators become wealthy like Gore and Barney Frank and then backtrack, when they're up for reelection to pander to their base, for a few months.

    The catastrophy of Detroit, now on full speed ahead, for ALL of America.
    Illinois is the new California. Broker than broke.

    please, tell me the difference between her doing something illegal and all of the illegal aliens that live here. this is a perfect example of illegal= illegal. rape=illegal. murder=illegal. being here without documentation= ILLEGAL.

  28. 28

    A Scam artist she is!

    Re: Vintage7787 – No, Perez only reports on people he doesn't like. Obama's wasting of taxpayer funds doesn't count, nor does the fact that his mother-in-law in living in the white house on our tax dollars which is totally illegal. None of that really matters.

    Re: gimlet123 – ignorance does not mean you can break the law….trying telling a cop that youwere unaware of the law he is trying to charge you with…he will laugh at you./..not sure why she would be able to get away with it

  31. 31

    Re: Vintage7787 – not as bad as gw being on vacation for 8 years straight!

  32. 32

    You definately need to get your facts straight. I recommend reading her book "Going Rogue". You get the chance to understand her side of the story and a lot of truths come out. Stop feeding the empty lies about her. She's an incredible role model.

  33. 33

    She wears an Israel button. Awesome.

    If Joe Plumber does something illegal, they go to jail. They can't just pay it back. Impropriety, while surrounded by Alaskan lawyers, and ignorance of the law is not a defense.

  35. 35

    Perez is a liar! I suggest you liberal freaks get your story straight before reporting lies! If you did your research (duh), you would find that Palin made it clear that this fund should only be set up if all laws were followed and her attorneys did their research and made a mistake! You damn liberals are mentally disturbed and aren't in reality!

  36. 36

    I often wonder if she has ever been phucked in the ass?

    Re: jackiem – LAWYERS made 'a mistake' setting up her legal fund. Chuckles. Wanna buy an igloo in Alaska? I read articles about others who clearly state they advised her against doing this. It's not about liberals or neos. It's about legal, or illegal. I'm glad she got out of politics. Her paycheques have been better, and her headaches have probably been smaller.
