The Alaska State Legislative Council, which runs state government when the legislature is not in session, early this evening issued a scathing report that concludes Palin abused the powers of her public office and "violated the state's executive branch ethics act, which says that 'each public officer holds office as a public trust, and any effort to benefit a personal or financial interest through official action is a violation of that trust.'"
The non-partisan council is composed of 10 Republicans and 4 Democrats. The findings were unanimous.
