Palin, fundraising consultants no longer working together

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/03/16/art.getty.palin.rally.jpg caption="Palin's PAC, which officially formed at the beginning of the year, does not have to file federal disclosure forms until summer."](CNN) - Sarah Palin and the GOP firm that had been advising her political action committee SarahPAC are no longer working together, the Washington Post reported Friday.

Representatives for the Alaska governor and for Campaign Solutions, a firm that had long been involved with fundraising efforts for former Republican presidential candidate John McCain, could not immediately be reached for comment.

The news comes the same day the Palin camp formally announced a long-planned legal defense fund to help the governor cover costs associated with a series of ethics complaints.

Palin's PAC, which officially formed at the beginning of the year, does not have to file federal disclosure forms until summer.

    These fundraisers are NOT working together because they've realize that Gov. Sarah Palin is more of a LIABILITY than an asset.

    Sara Flailin', thank God for you and the incredibly ridiculous sense of escapist irrelevance you continue to provide us with amidst these trying times!

    Keep digging yourself into a hole Sara! We love it, you betcha, wink, wink!!

    A house built on sand (phoniness, lies, deceit) will never stand.

    Very true. Which means... one and done, Barry!

    Ms Palin has a number of well recognized faults..lack of taking personal responsibility for her own actions is at the top to the list..the poor interviews she gave during the campaign were based on "gotcha questions", the clothes for tthe campaign..."why I did not even want them"....problems with the state legislature "is caused by them", rejection by her own party of her proposed Attorney General ..."it was caused by the Demos"...the list goes on and on..

    One thing is constant...she will not accept responsibility of the ethic violations she caused all by herself...and for the legal expenses that relate to her violations...her answer is "let others pay for it"..a class act...SHE IS NOT....but if the Repubs what her at the "lead of the pack for 2012"..I say go for it gal...because at the rate you are going now..you "flame out" well before then...

    I almost almost feel sorry for her now. She was dragged out by standard issue Party people who wanted to dupe rural America into voting against their own economic interests YET AGAIN.

    The unfortunate thing is that I think they really made her believe that she had a chance in their Party. She sadly bought her own press kit.

    To annie – Palin 2012, who will inevitably be on here at some point to comment, I am so, so sorry that the Republicans used YOU by using Palin, and used your hope about causes dear to you to get you to vote their way.
