Another ethics complaint has been filed against Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, less than a week before her resignation.Ridiculous. Sad too that someone in public office would put personal hatred before voters interests. Makes you sympathize with why Palin quit. Of course, after taking a peek at Ms. McLeod's mug (above), one can understand how she might be kinda bitter towards Palin.
The complaint filed Monday alleges Palin violated ethics law by failing to submit complete gift disclosure forms in a timely manner. The complaint is the 19th ethics grievance against Palin, most filed after she was named the GOP vice presidential candidate last year.
Most of the complaints have been dismissed.
The latest is the sixth filed by fellow Republican Andree McLeod, an outspoken critic of the governor.
Palin's attorney, Thomas Van Flein, says the multiple filings by one person raise the prospect that the ethics process "is being abused and is simply being used to harass and annoy."
Palin steps down as Alaska governor on Sunday, with 17 months left in her first term.
