The leftover money – nearly $425,000 – from his unsuccessful 2010 race against incumbent Lisa Murkowski sat idle for more than a year until late this spring. He's now doling out cash to a campaign consultant and a school that advises potential candidates. Most recently, Miller wants to use a sizable chunk of his campaign money to help tidy up loose ends stemming from his long-running court battle over whether he was wronged during his intense 2010 campaign against Murkowski.
Full disclosure: Last month, Superior Court Judge Stephanie Joannides ordered Miller to pay 75 percent of Alaska Dispatch's some $112,000 in legal fees in the case over whether Miller’s employment record with the Fairbanks North Star Borough should have been made public during the 2010 campaign. In late June, Miller deposited campaign funds with the clerk to cover what Joannides ruled he owes Alaska Dispatch, so he doesn't have to pay while he pursues an appeal. Alaska Dispatch has brought to the court its concerns about the appropriateness of using of campaign funds, instead of personal funds, to pay the bill.In June, a Superior Court judge in Alaska ordered Miller to pay more than $85,000 of Alaska Dispatch's attorney fees and costs from the news organization's 2010 lawsuit to make public Miller's employment records from his time as a part-time government lawyer.
As the prevailing party in the scuffle over whether Miller's employment records should be made public, Alaska Dispatch was entitled to seek reimbursement for fees and costs.
In the months and years following the initial ruling, Miller, convinced he'd been wronged, sought damages from his former employer. Even though Alaska Dispatch won the records lawsuit, and his campaign was over, Miller's quest to hold someone accountable for what he considered an invasion of privacy kept the lawsuit alive.more:

Sen. Sarah Palin? Poll shows Alaskans not sold yet
Sarah Palin is trailing Democratic Sen. Mark Begich in a possible 2014 Alaska Senate match up, a poll released Tuesday shows.
Begich leads the former Alaska governor 52 to 40 percent, a survey by [link]Public Policy Polling,http://images.politico.com/global/2013/ ... esults.pdf[/link] found. Begich also topped other potential GOP candidates.
Palin leads the Republican Senate primary pack with 36 percent, followed by Mead Treadwell with 26 percent, Dan Sullivan with 15 percent and the 2010 GOP nominee Joe Miller with 12 percent.
The poll also found voters in Alaska have a 58 percent unfavorable opinion of the former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee. Palin had a 39 percent favorable rating.
Alaskans also were split on whether Palin can be considered an Alaskan, with 46 percent saying she is not, versus 47 percent who say she is Alaskan, PPP found.

It's come out that the Alaska National Guard was corrupt to the bone. Stories like the national guard recruiters were having sexual relations with High School students they were supposed to be recruiting. Sexual assault, abuse, etc. Governor Parnell was told about this back in 2010 and didn't have an independent investigation and instead had the Guard commander take care of it. It seems the guard commander did nothing. Dan Sullivan was Attorney General at that time and the question is what did Sullivan know?
