Ex-Palin Aide Fined $12,000 for Using State Emails in Book

Tuesday, 21 Feb 2012 11:14 PM

A former aide to Sarah Palin has been fined for using confidential emails to write a tell-all book. Frank Bailey was fined just under $12,000 for violating the state's ethics law, The Anchorage Daily News reports.

An activist filed the complaint with the attorney general's office after hearing of Bailey's plans to use the emails he obtained while a member of Palin's gubernatorial staff. He wrote "Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin," which came out last spring.

The fines include penalties for disclosing confidential information to Bailey's two co-authors in drafting the book and also for publishing some information after being told it was not to be released.

A message that The Associated Press lefton Bailey's cellphone Tuesday was not returned.
