Alaskans Paid For Palin's Home Visits, Vacations as Governor

And she spent MORE TIME THERE than at the statehouse, folks!

Did the Alaskan people ever take it in the ass by accepting this witch! Talk about LOOTING!!!!

And now she's going to do it to the American people with a big, fat, dildo!!!!

"Palin Billed State for Nights Spent at Home; Taxpayers Also Funded Family's Travel" by James V. Grimaldi and Karl Vick, Washington Post | September 9, 2008

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 also has charged the state for travel expenses to take her children on official out-of-town missions. And her husband, Todd, has billed the state for expenses and a daily allowance for trips he makes on official business for his wife.

Palin, who earns $125,000 a year, claimed and received $16,951 as her allowance, which officials say was permitted because her official "duty station" is Juneau, according to an analysis of her travel documents by The Washington Post.

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. During her speech at the Republican National Convention last week, Palin cast herself as a crusader for fiscal rectitude as Alaska's governor.

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.

Yup, YOU PAID TAX DOLLARS so Mz. Sarah could go the the GAME!!!!

Why isn't this in my Boston Globe, readers?

Instead, they are telling me Sarah won the presidency for McCain!

In separate filings, the state was billed about $25,000 for Palin's daughters' expenses and $19,000 for her husband's. Flights topped the list for the most expensive items, and the daughter whose bill was the highest was Piper, 7, whose flights cost nearly $11,000, while Willow, 14, claimed about $6,000 and Bristol, 17, accounted for about $3,400.

Yup, you paid to HAVE THE KIDS FLOWN AROUND -- but she SOLD THAT PLANE on E-bay!!!

Well, no, she sold it through an agent on a bid, but, well, the TAXPAYERS LOST MONEY on it, but, whatever.

Sarah is as CLEAN as the DRIVEN SHITBOWL according to the shit AmeriKan MSM!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One event was in New York City in October 2007, when Bristol accompanied the governor to Newsweek's third annual Women and Leadership Conference, toured the New York Stock Exchange and met local officials and business executives. The state paid for three nights in a $707-a-day hotel room.


The family also charged for flights around the state, including trips to Alaska events such as the start of the Iditarod dog-sled race and the Iron Dog snowmobile race, a contest that Todd Palin won.

Tony Knowles, the Democratic governor from 1994 to 2000: "I gave a direction to all my commissioners if they were ever in their house, whether it was Juneau or elsewhere, they were not to get a per diem because, clearly, it is and it looks like a scam -- you pay yourself to live at home. And the policy was not to reimburse for family travel on commercial airlines, because there is no direct public benefit to schlepping kids around the state."

I wish I could pay myself!!!!! I'd be the richest man in the county!!


It's called LOOTING!!!!!!

Knowles, whose children were school-age at the start of his first term, said that his wife sometimes accompanied him to conferences overseas but that he could "count on one hand" the number of times his children accompanied him.


Meanwhile, ladies, get a load of this:

Wasilla Police Billed Sexual Assault Victims for Their Own Rape Kits

Of all of the things I’ve learned about Sarah Palin in the last week and a half, this has got to be the most disturbing. While Sarah Palin was serving as the Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, the city charged victims of sexual assault between $300 and $1200 for their own rape kits. A rape kit is a sexual assault forensic evidence kit, used to collect DNA that can be used in criminal proceedings to assist in the conviction of those who commit sex crimes. The kit is performed as soon as possible after a sexual assault or attack has been committed. It is usually humiliating and uncomfortable for the victim–imagine enduring that and then paying $1200 just so that the criminal who assaulted you might be caught."
