Palin backers raising funds for her legal defense
ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s supporters are holding a Web-a-thon to raise money for her legal defense fund.
Organizers of Conservatives4Palin say they hope to raise more than $500,000 in a week.
Palin has said she has amassed more than that in legal fees while fighting ethics complaints. She also incurred legal fees during last fall’s Troopergate investigation into her firing of Alaska’s public safety commissioner.
The legal defense fund was established in April.
According to the campaign’s Web site – http://www.conservatives4palin.com – more than $50,000 had been raised by Tuesday morning. The Web-a-thon started Monday.
