A longtime critic of Sarah Palin has filed an ethics complaint alleging past aides of the former Alaska governor misused state resources during her run as the Republican vice presidential candidate. Andree McLeod filed her complaint today. Five other ethics complaints filed by McLeod against Palin or her staff have been dismissed, although one included a recommendation that ethics training be provided for a staffer who made questionable comments in e-mails. A sixth complaint by McLeod is pending. In the latest grievance, McLeod maintains eight staffers in the former governor’s office violated the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Act by using state time, property and resources to benefit the campaign of presidential hopeful John McCain and runningmate Palin.
