ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) ' A former aide to Sarah Palin has been fined for using confidential emails to write a tell-all book.
The Anchorage Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/wggRRL) Frank Bailey was fined just under $12,000 for violating the state's ethics law.
A message left by The Associated Press on Bailey's cellphone Tuesday was not immediately returned.
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.
