An ethics complaint filed against Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin claims the legal defense fund she formed last week to challenge such claims is an ethics violation itself.

The complaint filed Monday with the Alaska attorney general's office seeks an investigation by the Alaska Personnel Board. Complainant Kim Chatman claims Palin is misusing her official position for political gain and receiving improper gifts.

The former Republican vice presidential candidate has said she's accumulated more than $500,000 in legal fees. They come from defending herself against a dozen or so ethics complaints and in Troopergate, the Legislature's probe into the firing of Palin's former public safety commissioner.
