Did Legal Bill Force Palin Out?

Why did Sarah Palin resign the Alaska governorship? “I think what I heard from the governor,” said State Lieutenant Governor Sean Parnell on Fox News Sunday, “really had to do with the weight on her, the concern she had for the cost of all the ethics investigations and the like — the way that ... weighed on her with respect to her inability to just move forward Alaska’s agenda on behalf of Alaskans in the current context of the environment. So that’s what I saw.” Palin owes more than $500,000 in legal fees due to 15 ethics complaints she’s racked up in her two-and-a-half years as governor.
