ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Gov. Sarah Palin says she would not accept a raise recommended by the State Officers Compensation Commission. Palin spokesman Bill McAllister said Wednesday that if the Legislature submits legislation for a raise, Palin will not accept the money. Instead, if the raise is approved, she will subtract the difference from her current salary and donate it to charity or find a way to redirect the funds for the benefit of others, McAllister said.

Way to go Sarah. I really hope that she is our nominee in four years.
WOW!!!!! Just........WOW!!!!! I LOVE THAT WOMAN!!!!!!! She is a true servant-leader!
SARAH PALIN, 2012!!!!!!
I swear just when I think I can’t love this women any more she does something else I love
will the media report and swoon over this
How many states in the black?
How many are in the red and are run by Dems?
How many gov’s are cutting costs and who is raising tax’s?
NY raises, Ak cuts spending
Sarah and Jindal 2012
is it 2012 yet?
Watch for her to sign a multimillion dollar book deal sometime within the next month or two, and donate the proceeds to charity. That’s the way she is, and that’s the way she’s going to be. Cut the state budget, reject a pay raise, what more can we ask for. Next, she’ll say she wants to defend our borders, and require people to speak English of all things.
I can hardly wait to see the defamatory spin the media puts on this. On the other hand they will probably keep it hushed up.
Yeah, baby! She’s gearing up to kick some DC butt!
This is why the Rats hate her so much...she’s REAL.
America NEEDS this lady.
I got two words for Oblama and they ain’t “let’s dance”...
But of course Palin is viewed as an idiot, while we have all these morons running around Washington D.C., pretending that they know what they’re doing.
I posted this on the other forum so I just copied and pasted it here(Since this is relevant)
I tell ya, what a woman. She deserves a raise but wont accept it, doesnt feel its right, if she does get it, she will donate it to charity or give the money back to the people of Alaska. Again and again Sarah shows me that she is the female Ronald Reagan, this America, this is why the libs hate her, show me another politician, or Governor who would NOT accept a pay raise because they wouldnt feel right about it. I adore this woman, Ronny would be so proud, he is smiling from heaven right now
they class her as an idiot because she is one of us, she is down to earth and not a ivy school elitist
An excellent example of how our governance should handle these circumstances.
Too bad it won’t be posted outside of FR.
I i’m not at all surprised and would not expect any less from my girl!
You go Sarahcuda!
