Two more ethics complaints against Sarah Palin have been dismissed. We all knew they would be, as they were not rooted in anything genuine. Read her press release about the first complaint dismissed yesterday here. That was just the start of a good day for the governor. Later, she tweeted the following message:
"Great day! Another frivolous ethics complaint against me was dismissed! I won against another false allegation, too! More info to follow..."
Later she did follow up that information with another tweet:
"For more info on dismissed ethics complaints go to http://tinyurl.com/o86hds."
This one is particularly satisfying for me because the complaint filed here was not about her leaving Alaska last month. The real issue, I believe, is the resentment some have that she would dare speak at a pro-life event, which is what she did when she spoke at the Vanderburgh Right to Life Banquet in Indiana.
Not many of us will ever undergo the type of scrutiny she goes through, not just ethics complaints about her role as governor but attacks pertaining to her family. At a press conference about a month ago, a member of the press asked her how she has been able to handle the scrutiny, particularly concerning her family. She stated simply that she thanks God that she can rely upon her faith to endure these circumstances, and that she prays for wisdom, strength, and "revelation of truth." I'm not sure if that was the answer the woman was looking for, but I appreciate leaders who acknowledge God and the need to seek His face. Of all the reasons there are to support Sarah Palin, that alone is my number one. It's not about her being a Republican. It's not about her being a woman. It's about her being a Christian.
Two more victories have been won by Sarah, yet there are a number of ethics complaints still out there. My message to the governor?
"No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD."--Isaiah 54:17
