Frank Bailey Fined For Email Use

A former aide to Sarah Palin has been fined for using confidential emails to write a tell-all book.

Frank Bailey was fined $11,900  for violating the state’s ethics law.

An activist filed a 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.
