Palin responds to ethics complaint

July 12, 2009|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says she hoped the latest ethics complaint filed against her would serve as a "wake-up call" that a new ethics policy is needed in the state.

"The only saving grace in this recent episode is that it proves beyond any doubt the significance of the problem Alaska faces in the 'new normal' of political discourse," Palin said in a release that was posted online through her Twitter account.

The ethics complaint, filed Friday with the state personnel board, alleges that Palin has been paid for media interviews. Palin's chief of staff, Mike Nizich, denied the allegation.
