Palin top aide to pay $11,900 in civil penalties

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Anchorage, Alaska:  Sarah Palin’s top aide Frank Bailey has agreed to pay civil penalties totaling $11,900 to resolve an ethics complaint.  The complaint was filed on September, 2010 by Andrée McLeod when she learned that Bailey misused confidential documents and emails he had acquired while he worked for Palin.

“Justice has yet to be served.  I have called on the Attorney General to reveal all the public’s documents and emails that Bailey confiscated and shared with others when he left state employment.”

McLeod and members of the media have requested all of Palin’s email communications for the time she was Alaska’s governor.  Although some have been revealed, many couldn’t be located because of Palin’s rampant use of private email accounts for official business, and thousands more remain undisclosed as Alaska’s governor’s office cites executive privileges and other delay tactics.

“Every one of those confidential and still undisclosed public documents that were in Bailey’s possession must be made public,immediately, as Bailey broke the chain of custody when he illegally shared them with his co-authors Jeanne Devon and Ken Morris,” McLeod said.

“This is the second time that Sarah’s go-to guy has been found to have crossed the line.  The first was back in November of 2008 when I filed another complaint against Sarah and her staff, including Bailey,” McLeod said.

McLeod continues, “This agreement proves, yet again, that Sarah Palin’s account of her role in reforming Alaska’s government while governor is truly the only real ‘false narrative’ being bandied about.”

    And once again, Palin skates away untouched. The tentacles of her corruption and influence know no bounds.

        I know, I know, but just when you think they can’t sink any lower, there they go. I should learn not to be surprised anymore.

        Ok. I honestly thought you had come late to the party. Yeah, I agree. Just when you think you’ve heard it all, something else bizarre comes out.
