Treatment of Governor Palin Sparks Change in Alaska’s Ethics Rules

Posted by Adrienne Ross on December 23, 2010

By Adrienne Ross –

After the 2008 election, Governor Palin returned to the state of Alaska and was greeted by a plethora of partisan, frivolous, bogus ethics complaints. This abuse of the ethics system cost the state of Alaska and the Palin family reams of money. These antics tied up the Governor’s office, forcing her administration to have to deal with this sick game instead of being free to fully focus on the business she was elected to perform. There was no end in sight; the complaints kept coming–for things as silly as the type of jacket Governor Palin wore.

Alaska law made it easy for people to get away with this nonsense. Those filing a complaint didn’t have to pay a dime, while the accused had to pay to defend him or herself. These ridiculous complaints against the Governor were consistently dismissed, as there was no substance to them. Still, much damage was done–and that was the plan. To disarm the haters, who purposely and maliciously abused the system with no regard for neither the Palins nor their state, Governor Palin sacrificially stepped down from a job she loved in a state that loved her, as evidenced by the incredible approval rating she enjoyed prior to the media malpractice of 2008.

As a result of what Governor Palin endured, the state of Alaska realized that their approach to ethics complaints had to be changed. They have now adopted new ethics rules, which took effect yesterday. The Associated Press “reported” on this. As usual, they did a backassward job filling in the people as to what triggered this change.

Stacy Drake writes about this anemic coverage:

The Associated Press published an article about the new rules back on December 8th. As usual, the AP dropped the ball when it came to performing their standard journalistic function of providing their readers with the “five W’s” of the story. This time, they completely omitted the “why” part. C4P readers understand the context and origin of the new rules, but unfortunately many people not familiar with our site, rely on one of the news outlets that release AP stories such as that one, as is. The AP is biased and lazy, but thankfully more Americans realize this than ever before.

In the end, it is good to know that no other governor in the state of Alaska will ever have to endure what Governor Palin and her family went through in those months following the 2008 presidential campaign. Given the conspicuous timing of the frivolous claims (after the 2008 campaign) and the sudden disinterest of the Democrat party machine in the comings and goings of Alaska’s Governor, I think it’s safe to say that use of the new rules will be minimal.

‘Helping Haiti’ – OTR One-Hour Special Tonight

Posted by Dr. Fay on December 23, 2010

Greta van Susteren is showing exclusive footage shot during her trip to Haiti with Franklin Graham and the Palins in a one-hour On the Record special tonight.  Here is what she says about the show on Gretawire:

Tonight at 10pm. an extraordinary OTR !   You go to HAITI with us (and with Reverend Franklin Graham and Gov Sarah Palin and Todd Palin and Bristol Palin.)

There are many reasons why I say OTR at 10pm tonight is like no other OTR, but one reason is because the entire hour was shot by OTR producer Justin Wells and me.   Neither of us is a professional videographer by any means (you may have to turn  your head sideways at parts of the video so that it is straight…and the video does shake) but you will get a really good idea of what is happening in Haiti.  We wanted to make sure you saw a lot and this was our best way to do it.

I suspect a few things…one is that you will feel like YOU are in Haiti with us.   I also think you will react to this hour in Haiti in two very different ways — in some parts you will be revolted by the horrible conditions in Haiti and in other parts you will be absolutely inspired by the extraordinary help by others.
