A Whalin' We Will Go

Wasilla, AK - Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin owes $500,000 in legal fees she has accumulated in trying to defend ethics complaints against her. As the fees continue to mount, Palin is trying to find creative ways to pay off that debt. Ironically, one of the solutions may, in and of itself, raise ethics questions.

Most recently, she's come under scrutiny by the state personnel board for attempting to use her position for personal gain by authorizing the creation of the Alaska Fund Trust, whereby she has access to public funds to pay the debt. But the fund's trustee says the organizers have frozen that fund pending review. Said one concerned Alaskan "If she thought she was gonna drain the fund dry and then leave office the next day, well, that just ain't gonna happen without a fight."

With not many options left, Palin is considering organizing her husband and other family members for a whale hunt off the coast of Alaska to bring in enough money to at least make a down payment on the rising debt. Said Palin, "oh yeah, I know it's illegal to some, but for Alaskans, well we do things different up here, ya know. I'm a mama bear and I'm just lookin' out for my baby bears."
