Palin Slam-Author Advised To Take Ethical Training While Palin Was Cleared

Steve Flesher
The anti-Palin books headed our way are sure to delight the usual Palin-bashing keyboard addicts punching away until the wee hours of the night.  On the other hand, they could serve as amusement to others as they become aware of the actual facts.

Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin is set for release May 24, 2011 and bears the authenticity of being the only anti-Palin book co-authored by a former aide of the Governor.  Frank Bailey served with Governor Palin during her election campaign and victory.  Aside from that, it is quite predictable: the book's other authors are Jeanne Devon, a frequent Palin-basher and writer at the Huffington Post, and Ken Morris, a liberal economist known for his rants against Wall Street.

The book is described by indignant Palin-haters as being one man's journey (with emails to prove it!). Unfortunately, it doesn't quite let us know ahead of time what exactly Jeanne Devon or Ken Morris have to do with it.  In a similarly comedic development, the same woman who viciously attacked Sarah Palin with innumerable and frivolous ethics complaints is now filing one against Bailey himself for using state emails acquired while acting as a public servant.  The woman, often referred to as an activist from Anchorage (but referred to respectfully as the "Falafel Lady" by Sarah Palin) is Andree McLeod.

In Bailey's defense, his lawyer stated "the value that exists in Mr. Bailey's book comes not from the emails, but from his personal recollections of events that transpired within the Palin Administration ... the emails simply serve to refresh Mr. Bailey's recollections as he writes of events, and also as proof of his recollections."
So thanks to the efforts of the Falafel Lady, it seems that the recollections of Mr. Bailey are attempting to score second-runner up to Scott McClellan's (and Scott McClellan didn't even team up with a Huffington Post writer) as opposed to a fact-based tell-all with emails to show for it.

Furthermore, one of McLeod's numerous ethics complaints against Governor Palin included Frank Bailey for allegedly using their positions to help a campaign supporter get a state position.  As Sean Cockerham of the Alaska Daily News reports, "the investigator concluded Palin didn't do anything wrong but recommended ethics training for Bailey."

So, in summary, we now know why Sarah Palin never promoted Frank Bailey as his behavior was found to possess at least some level of unethical quality to it.  We now know why Frank Bailey is disgruntled.  Aside for the fact that nobody knows or cares he exists, Frank Bailey might want to spent more time exploring the blind allegiance he bears to himself without having to slander Sarah Palin's name on his path.
