Another Ethics Complaint Vs. Sarah Palin

The drip continues

An ethics complaint obtained by NBC News was filed yesterday by the police officers' union in Alaska, requesting a probe into possible wrongdoing by the governor or her office. It was brought on behalf of state trooper, Mike Wooten, the ex-brother in law of Palin, who is at the center of the 'Troopergate' scandal.

The complaint alleges that the governor or her staff may have have improperly disclosed information from Wooten's personnel records. The complaint alleges 'criminal penalties may apply.'

'It seems obvious to us somebody has improperly accessed [Wooten's] personnel file,' John Cyr, director of the union that filed the complaint, told NBC News.
