    Oops! The Maverick!

    QUOTE
    ANCHORAGE, Sept. 8 -- Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has billed taxpayers for 312 nights spent in her own home during her first 19 months in office, charging a "per diem" allowance intended to cover meals and incidental expenses while traveling on state business.

    ...

    The governor's daughters and husband charged the state $43,490 to travel, and many of the trips were between their house in Wasilla and Juneau, the capital city 600 miles away, the documents show.

    ...

    She wrote some form of "Lodging -- own residence" or "Lodging -- Wasilla residence" more than 30 times at the same time she took a per diem, according to the reports. In two dozen undated amendments to the reports, the governor deleted the reference to staying in her home but still charged the per diem.

    ....

    Palin charged the state a per diem for working on Nov. 22, 2007 -- Thanksgiving Day. The reason given, according to the expense report, was the Great Alaska Shootout, an annual NCAA college basketball tournament held in Anchorage.

    that is it...name calling....no rebuttal of facts?

    then the article must be true since you posted no rebuttal but just name called.

    Nothing to rebut , it is all legal and acceptable. You know allowed? More bullshit spewed in the hopes someone will believe it.

    Reminds us how Trig is really Bristol's son.

    legal and acceptable? she's screwing the residents of Alaska by charging them to stay in her own FREAKIN HOME!

    the shit you all find acceptable amazes me and it really shouldn't because you'll excuse away ANYTHING to keep the Cons in power.

    I'm all for factfinding, let's investigate Palin for her alleged offenses.... and then let's take a peek at Obama's relationships with Rezko, Ayers and Wright. Sounds fair and balanced to me.

    It may be legal, but it sure seems unethical and bizzare. Taking a per diem to stay in your own home?

    This is a woman who bragged about saving taxpayer money by making rape victims pay for their own post-rape medical treatment in Wasilla, and getting rid of the governor's airplane.

    Her home of record as governor is in Juneau.... not at her actual, privately owned home... while in Juno she has her food, etc paid for within the context of her position.. when she is away from Juneau, that support does not stop, and hence an allowance.... which was used when she was in Wasilla...

    this is yet another attempt by the liberal media and DEMs to throw a ton of shit on the wall in the hopes that some will stick...

    And they dare to complain that the REPs are the party of dirty, hate filled politics?


    PUH-LEASE
