Andree McLeod Strikes Out Again; Ethics Complaint Against Former Palin Press Secretary Bill McAllister Deep-Sixed

Another Andree McLeod ethics complaint gets flushed, but that's almost like saying the sun rises in the east. The Anchorage Daily News reports that her complaint that former press secretary Bill McAllister worked on state time to benefit Sarah Palin's interest during and after her quest as the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate was unsubstantiated. The Department of Law concluded that no evidence of any violation of state ethics law was found, and so Deputy Attorney General Craig Tillery dismissed the complaint. This story was also posted on Conservatives4Palin.

Andree McLeod originally filed the complaint back on January 23rd, 2009:

By the way, I've noticed that McLeod has filed no ethics complaints since July 20th, shortly before Sarah Palin's resignation. Absolutely none since Sean Parnell took over. Coincidence? Isn't it obvious what McLeod's real objective was by now? It had nothing to do with ethics. McLeod was pissed off about not getting a patronage job, and so she used the ethics complaint system to run Palin out of office. Crap, even Forest Gump could figure that one out.

By the way, Bill McAllister has apparently registered on the ADN website and has posted several comments to this story. Most of the three comments were an ad nauseum recital of all the journalistic awards he won, but he did squeeze in this gem of substance: "As for the fallacious, malicious suggestion that I "asked" the Palin administration for a job well in advance of taking it, wrong. I never asked; I was approached. And I immediately resigned from Channel 2 upon accepting. Think about it; why would I wait months to double my salary? Not very logical." McAllister had been unfairly accused of lining up the press secretary job with Palin well before his departure from KTUU and then "softballing" the Palin administration in his reporting until his departure from KTUU.

    "Continued Detention of Radio Host Hal Turner

    "Hal Turner, the shock jock from North Bergen, New Jersey, was again denied bail despite the fact that the government provided no evidence of Mr. Turner being a danger to the community.

    "CHICAGO, IL, September 04, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Hal Turner, the shock jock from North Bergen, New Jersey, was again denied bail despite the fact that the government provided no evidence of Mr. Turner being a danger to the community.

    "The government now seeks to adjourn the October 5th trial date, possibly subjecting Mr. Turner to a longer period of confinement. His attorneys', Nishay K. Sanan and Michael Orozco, have vehemently objected.

    "Given the administrative persecution that Turner has had and continues to endure in the SHU including not showering for nearly a week, having the caps on his teeth removed because they were deemed to be 'dangerous', only being allowed to communicate with his family once per month, two 15 minute phone calls to his attorney per week, segregated from the general population, being locked in his cell for 23 hours a day, no outdoor access, no TV, no radio and being subject to numerous de-humanizing searches and restrictions a "continuance would be tantamount to unjust and cruel and unusual punishment" stated Sanan.

    "Despite the fact that the FBI and Joint Terrorism Task Force, created, educated and funded the #1 "Hate Radio Host" in America the arrest and prosecution of Turner still constitute a fraud upon the court, as they are aware that they cannot convict Mr. Turner nor do they possess any evidence which shows that Mr. Turner intended to harm the judges involved in the alleged threats.

    "The American public should be outraged at how badly a man's constitutional and civil rights are being violated. Not everyone will agree with what Mr. Turner has to say, but everyone must agree that he has a right to say that which is protected. For more information on Mr. Turner, please visit
