Palin Target of Relentless Legal Attack

I wonder sometimes if Sarah Palin regrets stepping into the ring with John McCain to run for the White House, if for no other reason than you'd think that with the election over, folks would get on with life. But her political opponents don't seem to be able to put it down.

Redstate reports that Palin is being purposefully hit with frivolous ethics charges in an attempt to bankrupt her.

From just September till now, Sarah Palin has accumulated a personal dept of over $500,000 in legal fees defending herself against fake/false/frivolous ethics charges. That’s
Five Hundred Thousand Dollars.

A group of Alaska liberals, with the apparent cooperation of members of the Alaska Democratic Party have been filing ethics charge after ethics charge against Sarah Palin. The aim? Not to get her impeached and booted from office, because every single one of the charges are frivolous, baseless and even fairly deranged - one was even filed in the name of a soap opera character - but something far more personal. matter how frivolous their charges, no matter how far-fetched, no matter how bone-headed stupid, the Governor would still have to legally defend herself against them - meaning she’ll have to pay attorney fees as she goes before the Personnel Board.

This is pretty despicable behavior and a high price for Palin to pay for her ambition as she tries to chart a course of leadership within the party and its conservative movement.
