Nailed: Palin Broke Ethics Rules Again
Palin knew about report a week ago yet still allowed donations
An independent investigator's report shows that Alaska governor (for now) Sarah Palin probably violated ethics laws by knowingly, and unethically, trading on her position in seeking money for legal fees.
"There is little doubt that the Alaska Fund Trust will provide 'personal gain' to Governor Palin because the trust will provide a benefit to the governor's financial interest," Anchorage lawyer Thomas M. Daniel wrote in his nine-page report, dated July 14.

From the Washington Post:
Thomas Daniel, who was hired by the state personnel board to investigate a complaint by Alaskan Kim Chatman, declined to discuss the contents of his report but outlined the process for handling it. After reviewing the report, Palin could decide to settle or the issue could go before an administrative law judge for a hearing, he said.
