The governor’s using that Legal Defense Slush Fund to try to dismiss Chrissy Mazzeo’s suit against the Guber for his unwanted grope-attack at McCormick and Schmick’s. The grounds for dismissal?  That the suit is “ludicrous” and is  merely an attempt at “disparaging the reputation and character of the governor.” ( Sun ) Woah, they’re way too late. The gube himself had already disparaged what little reputation and character he had left long before the alleged goosing. Unless…do they plan to sue the governor for self-inflicted disparaging? Can they do that? Oh, here are the folk ...
Alaska Ethics: the Myth and the Reality
In Alaska, ethics regulations are written by the Attorney General. AG Dan Sullivan, in response to complaints about alleged abuses of the ethics rules by the former governor, has proposed modifications. Before looking at the modifications, let’s look at the myth and the reality of Alaska’s ethics rules. The first myth is that they were somehow recently made more stringent, that new rules were applied to the former governor. Um. No. The reality is that the current regulations, in substantially the same form, have been on the books since 1994. Everyone else has been able to muddle through for more than 14 years.

'Official' Sarah Palin legal defense fund deemed 'illegal ...
Thousands of donors who contributed to a $390,000 legal defense fund for former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will get their money back after an investigator said Thursday the fund was illegal because it was misleadingly described on a website. State Personnel Board investigator Timothy Petumenos said the Alaska Fund Trust inappropriately used the word "official" on its website, wrongly implying that it was endorsed by Palin in her role as governor. But Petumenos also found that Palin — the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee — acted in good faith and relied on a team of attorneys to make sure the fund was lawful and complied ... market research, surveys and trends


“Nixonian Numbers” « Voted Gibbons Out!
New poll numbers show over sixty percent of Nevadans still think Nevada Governor and Nixon-wannabe Jim Gibbons is America's Worst Governor. ( RGJ ) Course, Ray Hagar's editor over at the RGJ took the optimistic approach by titling the article "Gibbons' approval climbs in survey," which is true. Gibbers was just barely able to climb out of the 20-percenter territory he's been spending most of 2008 in. Although Gibbons' supporters could barely keep their knickers dry in their excitement at the news that only 60% of the state hates their guy, the fellow who actually ran the poll was a bit ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
On Fox, Fox News's Chris Wallace Grills Fox News's Sarah Palin ...
and other Democrats for allegedly crossing that hazy Fox News line between news gathering and conservative punditry. But on Sunday, Wallace had his Fox News colleague Sarah Palin as a guest , and it was a real journalistic interview. Unlike Fox News's Bill O'Reilly or Glenn Beck, who spent their interviews with Palin praising her symbolic value, Wallace went after Palin--questioning the logic behind her pro-life views, calling her out on walking away from her job as Alaska Governor (Ronald Reagan never walked away, Wallace points out) and drilling down on her views on everything from Rahm Emanuel to Rush Limbaugh. The ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Sarah Palin tells followers to read article comparing BP escrow fund to Nazism
Tweets are newsworthy. But it really is news that Palin has now used her Twitter feed to instruct her followers to read Thomas Sowell's now-notorious article comparing the BP escrow fund to Nazism. Late last night, Palin Tweeted the following about the escrow fund: That's unequivocal: Palin is endorsing the substance of Sowell's piece, and telling her followers that they should read it. Sowell's piece asks: "Is U.S. Now On Slippery Slope To Tyranny?" And it compares Hitler's use of the financial crisis to give himself "dictatorial powers" to Obama's use of the spill to force ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Palin Guilty of Major Ethics Act Violation: Must Return $386000 in Contributions
Nearly a year after she quit her governorship of Alaska, Sarah Palin was found guilty today of another breach of the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Act involving her so-called Alaska Fund Trust (AFT), which she established as a private "legal defense fund" while governor. Timothy Petumenos, independent counsel for the Alaska Personnel Board (and ironically, the same independent counsel who issued the Troopergate findings nearly two years ago while Palin was the GOP vice-presidential nominee), presented the state's Findings, Consent Decree and Settlement Agreement this afternoon from the perfectly named Adventure ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

What happened with the Watergate Scandal? - Yahoo! Answers
The Watergate Scandal began with the Watergate burglary -- Republican operatives under G. Gordon Liddy and CREEP (the Committee to Re-Elect the President) broke into Democratic National Committee Headquarters to bug the phone of former Kennedy hatchet man, Larry O'Brien. O'Brien had been a thorn in Nixon's side from the campaign in 1960, when O'Brien had linked Nixon to a shady loan to Nixon's brother from billionaire Howard Hughes. Hughes, who didn't like paying income taxes, later put O'Brien on his payroll as a lobbyist after Bobby Kennedy was assassinated and ...
