Just donated to new Palin Legal Fund! Will send more $ when I get my refund from former legal fund. Onward to 2010 and 2012!
The same blog announced today that:
What you may not know is that the Alaska Fund Trust incurred $87,680 worth of legal and other expenses in its formation. Furthermore, there will be expenses incurred in returning the donations to the Alaska Fund Trust. By donating today we can offset those costs.
So the illegal legal defense fund, which was the main reason for Palin's resignation announcement one year and 18 days ago actually needs $474,536.00 - and counting.
So SarahPAC is holding a fundraiser, with a goal of $100,000.00 by July 23rd. So far, they've raised 10% of that. But they're hoping:
Guys it's very important that we do this, they have a target of $100,000 by July 23 with only 5 days to go they are up to $10,000. We need to help them raise $90,000 within the next 5 days.
Anyway, the SarahPAC fools at the Sea of Pee are whining about how unfair it is that Palin was held to account for violating Alaska state statutes, and using her office to raise money for personal expenses:
As many of you are aware, on June 21st of this year, Governor Palin settled with the State of Alaska over the matter of the frivolous lawsuit concerning the Alaska Fund Trust.
Some of the comments at the Sea of Pee posting for the current beg are hilarious:
I donated $200.00. I give back the $150.00 and another $50.00 to cover cost.
When the original fund was announced, I mailed a check for $150. When it hadn't cleared after a month, I figured something had happened -- got lost in the mail or something, so I made a second $150 contribution via PayPal. About a week later, my original check cleared, so I unintentionally donated the maximum twice.
When the new fund was announced, I donated $100, will donate another $100 today, and when my refund comes from the original fund, I'll turn around and send that back in to the new fund.
Charter, I agree with you that this is a very tangible way in which we can stick it to her enemies. I'm not as eloquent as you are, so I'll just say to them, eat dirt!
The people who should really be on the hook for the Gov's legal expenses are the citizens of Alaska. The Whale (ya know who that is) and the Coockroach (ya know who that is) cost them $millions and they stood silently by and got fleeced right along with the Gov. Where were the protests? Where were the few thousand angry citizens camping out on their front yards. In the end if needed, where was the offer they couldn't refuse?
If the citizens of Alaska had any pride in their State, or in themselves for that matter, they wouldn't let this stand. Last summer I canceled a 2-week vacation to Alaska. I'll not spent one dine in a state where part of it would go to cause our Gov. harm and $. I'd rather donate $$ to her - The state of Alaska be damned!
The Gov promotes her state with a passion. With due respect, I say - NO thanks. Why should I support a people who let the best advocate for them they could ever wish for get screwed by of few of them very selves?
I mean - "Whoooooooosh!"
