I was very pleased to come home today to a personal note from Governor Sarah Palin!
The official SarahPAC statement reads thus about its efforts:
Dedicated to building America's future, supporting fresh ideas and candidates who share our vision for reform and innovation. SarahPAC believes America's best days are ahead. Our country, founded on conservative principles and the fight for freedom, must confront the challenges of the 21st century with integrity, innovation, and determination. SarahPAC believes energy independence is a cornerstone of the economic security and progress that every American family wants and deserves.
SarahPAC believes the Republican Party is at the threshold of an historic renaissance that will build a better future for all. Health care, education, and reform of government are among our key goals. Join us today!
The Alaska Fund Trust is the official legal defense fund for Governor Palin and her family. It was started as a result of the enormous debt she has been placed in due to the bogus, politically-motivated ethics complaints that continue to pile up against her. Although, from following this website, you know that these complaints are being seen for the hateful attacks that they are and dismissed regularly, they are still quite costly. While it doesn't cost the ankle-biters a dime to file them, it costs Sarah greatly to fight them--only to have them thrown out. It's a faulty process, no doubt--and America is helping because people want truth and righteousness to prevail over lies and evil.
Here's the official statement about this defense fund:
The Alaska Fund Trust is the official legal fund created to defend the integrity of the Alaska Governor's Office from an onslaught of political attacks launched against current Governor Sarah Palin, the First Family, and state-employed colleagues. These baseless accusations have cost Alaska more than $1 million in public monies to defend, and Governor Palin has incurred more than half a million dollars in personal debt defending her official actions as Governor. You can help by donating to the Alaska Fund Trust today!
Over the past months it became increasingly clear that supporters of Governor 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. I joined with fellow Alaskans in forming the Alaska Fund Trust to help alleviate the Governor's legal debt incurred while performing her job as well as eliminate the incentive for future attacks by her opponents. In doing so, we have created one of the most restrictive and transparent legal funds in history.
The "thank you" note was a joy to receive, but the greater joy is participating in something I believe in, being involved in a cause that matters to me--and obviously matters to Sarah, as well. Won't you help also? No "thanks" from the governor was necessary, but it sure says a lot.
