Sarah Palin has been accused of another ethics violation, this time for wearing gear made by the company that sponsors her husband’s snow-machine adventure, the Anchorage Daily News reports. The governor supported Todd at the annual Iron Dog race in an outfit from Arctic Cat, which gave the snowmobiler sponsorship worth $7,500 in 2007. The complaint was filed by a Democrat who blogs under the name “Celtic Diva.”

Palin was hit with another ethics complaint—her 10th—last week, for posting a political message on the state’s website during the presidential campaign. “Are Alaskans outraged, or at least tired of this yet?” Palin said yesterday in a statement. “This would be hilarious if it weren’t so expensive for the state to process these accusations and for me to defend against these bogus harassments.” (More Sarah Palin stories.)
