Skip to comments.Mark Begich: Sarah Palin may not be Alaska resident
Posted on 07/10/2013 12:57:49 PM PDT by GIdget2004
Sarah Palin quit on Alaska as governor and has lost touch with her home state, Mark Begich told POLITICO.
The Democratic senator said Palin, who said Tuesday shes considering challenging him for his seat in 2014, might not even be a resident of Alaska and is someone he wont take seriously unless she emerges from a competitive Republican primary.
I dont know if shes a resident. Shes been away from Alaska a lot and has probably lost touch with whats going on. She should go to my webpage, Begich said. Most Alaskans I see on a pretty regular basis, but I havent seen her for a long time.
During an interview Wednesday with POLITICO, Begich questioned four times whether Palin is even a resident of the state she once governed and said his campaign wont go on the offensive against Palin unless she can handle Joe Miller and Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell in a primary.
A Republican primary in Alaska? She may not survive, he said, one of a bundle of choice remarks for the former vice presidential candidate.
Begich, a former mayor of Anchorage, has known Palin for years. He said his sister played basketball with Palin but theres no love lost between the two.
I take every candidate seriously that is if shes still a resident, but you know she quit on Alaska what she was governor, Begich said. Shes been somewhat vacant from the state and quit on the state, so I wish her the best on her potential run.

Boy is that Rich
Democrat Senators can live anywhere they want.
Does she pay taxes there?
She’s an Arizona resident, now. And we need her to replace McCain, so hands off, Alaska! :)
Hillary, cough, cough....
Says the guy who lives in DC.
She’s probably not a US citizen. Not constitutionally eligible. The media will be all over this!
She IS NOT an Arizona resident. Having a second place through a LLC partnership doesn’t mean that she is a permanent resident of Arizona
LOL Begich, scared much? He should change his name to Biatch because that is what he is, a mega b*tch
She and Todd pay property tax on this parcel of land:
So I guess that she STILL is an Alaska Resident!
Born February 11, 1964 in Sandpoint, ID (Meets the Jus Soli Requirement)
Charles R Heath, born in ID
Sarah Sheeran, born in WI
Both parents were US Citizens at the time of her birth (Meets the Jus Sanguinis Requirement)
Sarah Palin is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN
Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama ISN'T!
Maybe she’s a resident of Kenya now...would this a@@hole like her better then?
That's okay. We have a Democrat President who may not even be a natural-born citizen, who seems to be on the golf course or on taxpayer-paid vacations a lot. Has our President lost touch with what's going on?
And Obama’s a citizen of Kenya—What’s your point, Mark?
That’s stupid. Sarah is obviously a native Alaskan. She’s no carpetbagger. Nothing wrong with getting away from the cold for a while (speaking as a New Englander!). And she was the state’s governor a short four years ago. I doubt things in Alaska of all places would have changed that much in so short a period.
And she need only be a resident of the state at the time of the election. That’s easy to do. Hillary Clinton did it. And she wasn’t born in New York, had never lived there, or been a mayor of a town there, or been the state’s governor. Give me a break!
She still has that house where that creepy author moved in next to her, doesn’t she? She’s a resident.
If Hillary lived in New York, then Sarah lived in Alaska.
She should hold a press conference and show everyone her birth certificate.
If Sarah Palin is smart she will never run for Senate. The Senate is evil, and there is no reforming it.
Yes, and I drove by the house last August when visiting my son. The neighbor’s house is extremely close and slightly above Palin’s. By the way, the Palin family was at home then.
Not wanting to start a flame war here - just asking. Why would you think that she would not be a US citizen?
Native of Idaho actually. Moved to Alaska as a very young child.
Actually, the Permanent Fund set the qualification for being an Alaska resident.
When I moved from Alaska back to Texas, bought a house in Texas and registered to Vote in Texas, I was still paying property taxes on the house we had not sold in Alaska. Paying property taxes doesn’t make you a resident, or I would be a resident in three different states.
Hillary became a first time NY state resident in Sept 1999 and was elected Senator in Nov 2000.
Sarah has plenty of time to reestablish residency, if in fact she is no longer an Alaska resident. But it sounds like a Democrat wishful thinking red herring.
And her electric bill.
I paid property taxes on the home I couldn’t sell in Alaska after I started voting again in Texas. Property taxes don’t make you a resident.
Maybe she walked here from Russia?
Where is she registered to vote?
Yeah, ain't that rich?
And he owes his seat to the election week indictment of his opponent which later proved to be bogus, totally groundless and politically motivated.
Begich may not be quite as bad as your typical turd-bird Democrat, but Alaska can do a LOT better.
I have friends who have 5 and more homes and even more who have two or more homes.
They claim their residency wherever they claim their residency and live at the other places when visiting those areas.
Good place to bump this thread. I’ll bet the PDSers will be all over this.
Palin is an executive, she doesn’t want to be in the Senate. I doubt very much she will run. Plus, she wants and needs to continue to make some real money.
Palin and her family went through Hell and back; at minimum she deserves true financial security for everything she sacrified.
Who?......A seated Democrat Senator
Who should care? Him!
He's scared and you can just feel the vicious attacks brewing in the back room that he's going to use against Palin should she decide to run for Alaska Senate......
I haven’t seen Begitch since he came to my work once raving about how great all the government pork was that he was bringing to the state. I don’t care about the money, cut the dang money!
He has recently been running ads saying how he is opsing the Obama administration. Trying to make himself sound conservative to the gullible people. He needs to go away for a long time.
Those aren't snide comments, they are seeds being planted that will eventually be cultivated and fertilized by the MSM..........
I dont know if shes a resident. Shes been away from Alaska a lot and has probably lost touch with whats going on. She should go to my webpage,
Let me ask you Mark, did you wet yourself when you heard Palin was coming for your job?
I'm betting, it's short, devastating, and might have him looking for the nearest rock.........
Right. I didn’t say she was born there. But she’s definitely an Alaskan, despite where she lives.
Ford was born in Nebraska but was native to Michigan, Lincoln born in Kentucky but was native to Illinois, Hoover was born in Iowa but was native to California, same with Reagan, who was born in Illinois.
Was Calvin Coolidge, who spent a great deal of his life in Massachusetts, in college, as legislator, and governor, any less a Vermonter??
She has a home in Arizona. That may in fact be true.
Regardless, Begich is a tinfoil hat nutter. Makes his living peddling conspiracy theories that the HAARP array is used for weather and/or mind control.
His brother is the Junior Dem Sen from AK.
That's democrat code to the MSM to start the investigation and inquisition and dig up everything they can to disenfranchise her from her supporters...........
‘Native’ is a term used for people who are born there. I am a native of Ohio but I’ve lived in Nebraska just about my whole life.
