Palin giving back tainted money from gov. campaign - Yahoo! News
She's a maverick folks!
Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. is requesting more than a quarter-billion dollars in earmarks to pay for projects in his home state of Delaware in fiscal 2009, but Republicans want to know when he will release the wish lists from the rest of his 35-year Senate career.
Washington Times - GOP pushes for Biden's earmarks list
Palin donates the 1000.00 she got to charity and gave back the 1000.00 dollars and things like Biden doing what he is doing don't bother you? Robert, it appears like your actually looking for things that are bad that are not there.
The whole point was she only gave back the money only a few hours after the press reported it.
You really think she would of given it back otherwise?
Please tell us this is an admission of some sort.
She probably didn't even know about it. It's $1000. Good for her.
Obama took $50,000 from someone...I can't remember who...Oh yeah, the holocaust-denying president of Iran (?).
He didn't give it back, either.
I don't know Robert, I don't know her personally nor do you. It's rather like me saying why they hell didn't Obama give back the 10's of thousands of dollars in PAC money he took and why did he stop taking it? You think the press reporting it had something to do with it? See what I mean?
Again, I was just pointing out that Sarah Palin is not a maverick. Though it seems most republicans have even gotten past that delusion.
Yes, she is a maverick. Anyone who tackles corruption and big oil is a maverick. Anyone who chops $230 MILLION in earmarks is a maverick.
And any politician who will return money is definitely a maverick.
I'll look for a link for the Obama thing. I don't hold out much hope. The press buries that shit.
I haven't found it yet, but look what I did find...
Lehman Bros is one of the biggest contributors to Obama.
And does anyone besides myself find it disturbing that colleges are top contributors to the tune of millions of dollars? WTF? No wonder our colleges are cesspools. Should our schools really be so slanted politically?
