More thinking ~ Rahm Emanuel received a stipend ~ let's call it a "per diem", for the rental or purchase of a property in the DC area for his use while doing public business.
All the Congresscritters get this tax-free supplement to their pay.
However, with Rahm living rent free with his friends, he could simply pocket that stipend.
There may well be a tax liability issue, as well as a Congressional ethics question, regarding what Rahm did with his housing allowance.

Now, that is exactly what they’re harping on Palin about. Exactly.

(My incredulity has already turned into disillusionment and is now turning into hatred.)
