Ethics? Bah, humbug. July 22, 2009

“POLITICO (Washington) – Alaska GOP Gov. Sarah Palin is aggressively pushing back against reports that claim an independent investigator has found evidence she may have violated Alaska’s ethics laws. The Associated Press reported Tuesday afternoon that an independent investigator for the state Personnel Board found that there may be evidence suggesting that a trust fund created to pay Palin’s legal expenses is in violation of state ethics law.”

Alaska has ethics laws? One would not so guess, looking at some other Alaskan laws:

Sarah Palin is an enthusiastic hunter who has proposed legislation and cash incentives to encourage aerial wolf gunning, the controversial practice of shooting wolves from an aircraft.

It seems Alaska is more interested in making laws about trivia rather than about ethics:


• Moose may not be viewed from an airplane.


• While it is legal to shoot bears, waking a sleeping bear for the purpose of taking a photograph is prohibited.


• It is considered an offense to push a live moose out of a moving airplane.
