Or so says Alaska Fund Trust spokesperson and Sarah Palin’s longtime friend Kristan Cole. Palin is faced with half a million dollars in legal fees stemming from various lawsuits concerning her alleged ethics breaches; the most recent lawsuit comes from an Alaska citizen who claims that Palin flew to a right-to-life rally on PAC dollars. The legal defense fund has been set up, in the words of Cole, for this reason:
“Over the past months it became increasingly clear that supporters of Gov. Palin needed to help defend against the onslaught of frivolous attacks against her. These baseless accusations are designed to inhibit her ability to focus on the issues Alaskans truly care about and force massive personal debt on her and her family.”
The naming of the fund – notably lacking any reference to Governor Palin – caused some confusion as to whether this fund was a legitimate legal defense fund for Sarah Palin. That confusion now being somewhat cleared up, we’re left with the confusion as to what on earth the above design is trying to convey.
Is moose meat a good way to raise money for the fund? Is it just suggesting that Palin’s in the crosshairs (or that she has antlers)? Hmm… we’re not sure. The design at right, we’re assuming, might indicate that Joe the Plumber is managing the defense fund (it came up under a search for “palin fund,”) but as far as we know Joe the Plumber hasn’t yet made this career switch. Then again, he does seem to be a plumber of many toolbelts…
