Palin Thinks There Is a 'Department of Law' at the White House. (There Isn't.)

In a new interview with ABC News, Sarah Palin left the door open to running for national political office in the future. She said that the “frivolous ethics violations” that plagued her during her time in Alaska wouldn’t be as much as a problem if she were in the White House because of the all-powerful “Department of Law” that the President has at his disposal:

I think on a national level, your department of law there in the White House would look at some of the things that we’ve been charged with and automatically throw them out.

For the record, no such agency exists at the national level. The state of Alaska does have a Department of Law, but it apparently wasn’t able to keep Palin safe from “some of the things [she's] been charged with.”
