Palin says winning White House will shield her from ethics charges

Refers to nonexistent 'department of law'

By John Byrne

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has a new plan for dodging "spurious" ethics charges — if winning the White House is considered a plan.

In an ABC News interview released Tuesday, the onetime Alaska commander-in-chief signaled that if she succeeded in a presidential run, life would get easier.

"I don't think it will be the day after day after day of ethics violation charges that are frivolous, that are ridiculous," she quipped. "I think on a national level your department of law there in the White House would look at this, the things we have been charged with, and automatically throw them out, not make somebody hire their own personal attorney to get out there and fight."

Wrote ABC's Kate Snow and Rick Klein wryly, "There is no 'department of law' at the White House, though Palin appears to have been referring to the White House counsel's office."

She could also have been referred to the Justice Department.
