Palin Contract Flap, Trouble?

A Sarah Palin speech for California State University has caused some serious controversy, with district attorneys investigating whether anything was improper about the school destroying the contracts.

But now the district attorney's office has found there was no wrongdoing by the school, and also nothing wrong from the students who uncovered and shared the documents. School officials had suggested the documents were stolen from a school office recycling bin, but the students claimed they simply found the documents for the Sarah Palin speech in a dumpster.

Sarah Palin has been doing many high profile speeches for Tea Party events and other conservative gatherings, as well as school appearances and other engagements. She has also scored big with her book Going Rogue, a bestseller that was a huge success.

A district attorney has cleared a California university of intentionally destroying documents about an upcoming speech by Sarah Palin. The Stanislaus County District Attorney also found no evidence of wrongdoing by students who obtained part of Palin's contract. The former vice presidential candidate is scheduled to give a paid speech June 25 at the California State University, Stanislaus. It is not known how much Palin will be compensated. Campus president Hamid Shirvani had suggested that the contract was stolen from a recycling bin inside the office of a vice president.
