Palin Accused in Federal Court of Attempted Bribery

Ex-governor Sarah Palin stands accused of the federal crime of attempted bribery in addition to violating the Alaskan constitution, in connection to a lawsuit previously filed against Palin. The Plaintiffs, who filed the amendment to their original lawsuit in federal court on Aug 3, 2009, allege that Palin offered state funds and support of legislation to third parties in exchange for those parties convincing Plaintiffs to drop their original lawsuit in federal or state court.
