Palin's Office Details Complaint Costs

Sarah Palin's office has released a nearly $2 million cost breakdown detailing what the resigning Alaska governor says the state has paid tackling ethics complaints against her.

The spreadsheet compiled by the governor's office totals more than $1.9 million reportedly spent by various state agencies to handle the complaints as well as public records requests.

Palin, who steps down July 26, has racked up more than $500,000 in personal legal debts on top of that.

According to the cost breakdown, expenditures by the state Department of Law added up to more than $850,000.

The governor's office says its expenditures totaled more than $425,000 in nearly 6,000 hours of staff hours.

Palin's staff released the numbers to back up her contention the onslaught of "frivolous" ethics complaints have cost the state millions of dollars and thousands staff hours.

Do you think Sarah Palin will try to run for the Presidential Office in 2012?

    A ggod way to stop these liberal idiot savants from filing frivilous lawsuits would be to countersue for libel and slander after one of the idiots file more than one ethics charge. There is no hope for the leftist elite. Thank me very much!

    Dwayne, the liberals are not afraid of anything conservative. Anything conservative is afraid to stand and fight... much like Palin.

    I call it Thug Politics. The liberals are so afraid of anything conservative that they are limitless in the attempts to completely trash her. It's thug politics right out of Chicago.

    No Fool,Didn't say I thought she could win. As a matter of fact, I know she couldn't.Not because of qualifications,obviously qualifications don't matter,look at our present leader. She couldn't win because of the ignorance of the voting public.To many people take in this spoon fed garbage from the main streem media without investigating other sources.Far, far to many believe they deserve something free. No Fool,remove your blinders or remove the No.

    It does sound like the media is being a bit biased against Sarah Palin. I am sure that her getting stuck on the wrong side of politics has part to do with this.

    Where's Obamas? Oh wait, that number is too large to release to the public... lets have another stimulus package instead, that ought to help us out. I'm outraged!

    Maybe if she wouldn't have called in high priced attorneys every time someone asked her about a bill she ran up, there wouldn't be a problem. I would guess the request for public records means that people already on the government payroll have to do some digging.

    This pit-bull with lipstick can't take a joke and she's making her tax-payers pick up the bill. Sounds conservative to me.
