- SarahPAC is not going to report the kind of income that she'll need to move into the big league for a 2012 campaign.
- Her "defense fund" (Alaska Fund Trust) is also not raking in nearly enough money to help pay for existing legal bills in addition to paying to defend her against upcoming ethics complaints.
- There is, in addition to more troublesome ethics complaints, some big investigation in the wings, either from the IRS or the FBI or both. This is not something she is going to be able to get her Personnel Board to take care of.
- She figured she'd better throw in the towel now by committing sepuku, essentially, in the hopes that she will not figure very highly on the radar when the real feces hits the proverbial fan.
In the meantime I'm wondering how many lips will loosen once they realize that Sarah no longer holds a position of power and the ability to do them or their families harm.
And I'm also wondering how long it will take to undo / turn around / the policies that her appointees have in place - like making it illegal for Alaska natives to fish for their survival this winter, for example.
