For now, Palin can't donate tainted gubinatorial re-election campaign contributions

The Washington Post reports that Sarah Palin cannot presently donate $2,000 that an indicted state legislator and spouse contributed to her gubinatorial re-election campaign fund. She intended to donate the money to charities (Crisis Pregnancy Center, Special Olympics Alaska and Abused Women's Aid in Crisis). Alaska election laws prevent donations from active accounts held by lawmakers not running for a state office; Palin has two more years in her first term as governor. This means that Palin can only use the money if the McCain-Palin ticket wins the election and she closes out the account. Otherwise, it will have to wait two years.

Think she has promised these donations to the aforementioned charities already? And, when she realizes she cannot make the donation from those monies, do you think she'll make the donation out of her own resources so as to not let these porganizations down? I wonder...
