Palin charged state for kids' trips

Alaska Gov. Palin is chargin' the state for takin' her kids all over the country, you betcha. "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."

"The charges included costs for hotel and commercial flights for three daughters to join Palin to watch their father in a snowmobile race, and a trip to New York, where the governor attended a five-hour conference and stayed with 17-year-old Bristol for five days and four nights in a luxury hotel.

"In all, Palin has charged the state $21,012 for her three daughters' 64 one-way and 12 round-trip commercial flights since she took office in December 2006. In some other cases, she has charged the state for hotel rooms for the girls."

Unless you are from Alaska Pete, how about focusing on real issues.

This is amazing. I had no idea she engaged in this type of criminal behavior. Palin should suffer the same fate Barney Frank did when his page ran a gay sex ring out of his basement, or the same punishment Ted Kennedy got for killing Mary Jo Kopechne...........throw the same book at her.

Any statement I make is the opinion of me exercising my first amendment right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and is generally permitted.

'I used to have compassion, but they taxed it and legislated it out of existence.'

are either Frank or Kennedy running for VP? This is a good indicator as to her character, along with all the other shit that's come out about her.

She later ammended the charges.

This is a good indicator as to her character,
In the same way as sitting on the Board of a committee, accepting campaign contributions from, and blurbing the book of an unrepentant terrorist is?

Lentil eater we are on your side. We agree it's terribly wrong and she should receive the same punishment as Frank and Kennedy. Why do you have a problem with that? Maybe you could explain.

I agree with fred. What Palin did was wrong, and they should throw the book at her, like they did with Mark Foley for trying to have sex with young boys, and Larry Craig for soliciting gay sex in a public restroom.

Keep plugging away fred. Some day you'll earn that capital "F". Until then, you'll just be a small little "f"
