THE CORRUPT FIGHTING THE CORRUPTION


Seems the idea of the 3rd graders at Gladys Wood Elementary School helping out Sarah Palin isn't so far off the mark.
Gov. Sarah Palin charged the state for her children to travel with her, including to events where they were not invited, and later amended expense reports to specify that they were on official business.
Her children, Bristol, Willow, and Piper are 17, 14, and 7.

It's good to know that Alaska is being run by a woman who defines foreign policy experience as merely being able to see the foreign country, a high school graduate, and three under-aged children.

All in all, Palin charged the state of Alaska
$21,012 for her three daughters' 64 one-way and 12 round-trip commercial flights since she took office in December 2006. She also has charged the state for hotel rooms for the girls.
Governor Sarah Palin: a fiscal conservative, fighting government corruption and representing true reform, maverick style.

Are you a parent ahole?

I'm not surprised. All this shows is that she will have no problem fitting in with the rest of the politicians in Washington who continually use our tax dollars as their personal expense account.

My God, can someone quickly send this nutcase back to where ever the hell she came from.

This lady is un-ethical and I am surprised she still has the audacity to accuse other people of being liars and untruthful….please, go back to Alaska before you totally wreck your political future or what’s left of it. Because with you right of the right attitude the middle will not allow you to win, go back and read the holy book which you say you believe so much in and try to understand it this time.

So THAT'S how Sarah manages to do it all. I could do that all too, if the state would bankroll my children and my parenting. Time for Sarah to "reform," pay back, and pay as she goes. Fudge your expense forms? How good is your "word", while you criticize others. And please stop using your children as political props. They deserve better (and so do we).

It was a matter of time before the real Palin came out! She needs to go back to Alaska and try to mend things over there. Do you think this country needs a continuation of all the corruption that has been happening for the past 8 years?

It's pretty obvious that taking the kids to the start of the 'iron dog' race was not official, but rather to see 'dad' start the race.
The trip to NY is an obvious coverup. The event that the kids 'participated' in was in fact a 'babysitting' service set up for attendees. It's not the money, it's the 'bad judgement'. Also, it'll be interesting to see that she billed for 'per diem' for 300 days spent at her HOME. Then there's the time when she ran for Lt. Governor while mayor of Wasilla. She used the mayor's office, phones, fax machines and staff to run her campaign. That's a clear violation of election laws.

Most important is to see the pattern of abuse of office and power. She thinks she can do whatever she wants, either out of ego or willful ignorance.

She would do the same as VP. She's already stated that she would 'run the Senate' and work on policy changes there. I guess she doesn't care what the Constitution says about the role and responsibility of the VP.

Gov. Palin thinks the GOP's 2nd stimulis proposal is redistribution of wealth according to her interveiw with CNN. I would like the deal she got $150,000.00 dollars for food , clothes , and travel for her family. Thats some outstanding WELFARE benifits and far better tax break then I get for housing and supporting my family for the year.

Instead of asking "Who is Barack Obama?" we should be asking "Who is Sarah Palin, really?" As Sarah's true personality gets revealed, the more America is going to see that she's been pulling the wool over our eyes. A couple of days ago she was whining to a CBN reporter how the media attacks and mocks her belief in God. It's not mocking God or someone having a belief that is being knocked. It is the PEOPLE LIKE SARAH who don't live up to all they claim to believe. Sarah claims she and her husband did nothing wrong in the Troopergate issue. She claims the childen WERE invited for all the speaking engagements she had. She does not own up to the fact that, after stoking people up in her rallies, that she did nothing about people in the crowd shouting out that Barack Obama is a terrorist or socialist, or when they yelled out "Kill Him." It was not just a fringe element as McCain and she spinned. People were booing and hopping mad! She just kinda smiled, getting quite a 'hoot' out of it all. Sarah hasn't obviously heard the commandments in the Bible about stealing or lying. By making the state pay for luxurious hotel rooms for her children, or any rooms, for that matter, when they weren't invited is STEALING. Then claiming to be the big maverick who cleans up corruption makes her also hypocritical. John McCain should be ashamed and not proud of his choice. She is always talking about Barack Obama being a dangerous choice because SUPPOSEDLY he is not ready to lead. She is the one who is the dangerous choice. I, for one, am scared of the McCain-Palin ticket getting into office....probably by stealing the election with rigged voting machines. What has America come to?

She is now going to have to lay off Obama regarding her claim that he is going to abuse his spending power. Seems this is what she did. Doesn't Palin know that what goes around comes around? That if you say something about somebody it will come back to haunt you? Just as she talked constantly about Obama's guns and religion problem she has a non-pro-American problem. And so does her husband. He wanted to leave. Does he still? Someone should ask him. I just thought about something. I can't believe the American people want to vote for a family that doesn't even want to be a part of the country. That's so crazy. But I notice no one is making a big deal out of that.

YAWN, who cares? Cover some important topics like Bidens comment about Obama being tested. That is scary. He said that Obama wont come up with the right solution and we have to support him. What?
I feel more secure having McCain in the oval office than a untested rookie senator.

I can't understand why the republican troll is voting for McCain when he/she/it is so fond of Obama's running mate. But seriously, we've already had eight years of abuses of exucutive power with disasterous result. Let's not have four more, k?

Lee said...

So it's not news? *yawn*?

Seriously? You can't stand the heat so you ignore the fire? Way to go, I can't wait you have your 3rd heart attack after your candidates mysteriously fail to win the election by double digits.

ana said...

Interesting that a republican would post a comment asking who cares about these finding? they have hit the nail on the head. THE REPUBLICANS DO NOT CARE ABOUT ANYONE BUT THEMSELVES.They simply want to win for the sake of winning. will lie cheat or do whatever it takes. But it does seem that its the other party who cares about the people !

Jeez, trying to pin anything on her you can!

Yeah, she blew $700 for a hotel room in NY - which Palin shared with her daughter. Know how much she would've spent if her daughter wasn't there? $700. Hmmm.

Did you know she gave herself a 10% pay cut as mayor of Wasilla? She is so dishonest as to think she could give herself a pay cut. How dare she!!!

Continue with your barking up the wrong tree, though...

I love how people went hysterical over John Edwards and his $300 haircuts. Meanwhile Caribou Barbie drops $150,000 on clothes and make-up.

Gosh darnit, I don't know too many hockey moms spending that kind of dough, you betcha.

But then I don't live in the "Pro America" part of America, do I, Sarahcuda?

Palin claims she took a salary cut when she became mayor of Wasilla. This is true. However, her salary went up during her tenure.

Here's her salary:
Took office 10/14/1996: $64,200
1/1/97: Pay cut $64,200 to $61,200
6/1/98: Pay rose $61,200 to $68,000
7/1/99: Pay cut $68,000 to $66,000
10/1/99: Pay rose $66,000 to $68,000

So while it's true she took a pay cut, it's more than a bit misleading.

And after Palin was elected mayor, she "ordered city employees not to talk to the press. And she used city money to buy a white Suburban for the mayor’s use — employees sarcastically called it the mayor-mobile."

And who in the !@%#$ do you think paid for Chelsea Clinton's travel expenses? Can we check to see if the Clinton's reimbursed the government every time she traveled with them on AF One?

Should Osama be elected, will he leave the kids at home all of the time. maybe they can fly Southwest and meet up with him wherever he is?

I would guess he'll be traveling to Grandma's house in Hawaii on our dime should he be elected.
