Complaints filed against Palin aides

Posted: Tuesday, January 27, 2009

ANCHORAGE - An outspoken critic of Gov. Sarah Palin has filed ethics complaints against two of the governor's top aides, saying they misused their official positions for Palin's personal and political gain.

Anchorage resident Andree McLeod filed the complaints Monday with Alaska Attorney General Talis Colberg.

Named are Bill McAllister, Palin's press secretary, and Kris Perry, the governor's top aide in Anchorage. McLeod maintains the two worked on state time to benefit Palin's interests during and after her vice presidential quest.

McLeod wants the state personnel board to investigate her allegations.

McAllister says McLeod has cost the state $100,000 in public records requests that have uncovered no wrongdoing. He says "at this point all we have is another complaint by a person with an obvious vendetta."

McLeod says she's not the issue. Instead, McLeod says, "The actions of McAllister and Perry while on the clock and state dime are the issues to be addressed."
