Officials dismiss complaint surrounding Palin’s TV series

The Associated Press

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Alaska officials have dismissed an ethics complaint filed against former Gov. Sarah Palin that alleged she violated state law because the TLC docu-series “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” took advantage of a state film production program she signed into law.

Malia Litman of Dallas filed the complaint. She also alleged Palin benefited from the production of the eight-partseries in violation of a two-year moratorium that bars former officials from being compensated for assisting others in state dealings.

Documents show producers of the reality program received nearly $1.2 million in tax production credits.

The complaint dismissal says there’s no basis for the grievance.
