    According to Fox News, the Alaska governor must reimburse her state approximately $7,000 for unnecessary travel expenses involving nine trips taken by her children. Fox reports that Palin has to reimburse the money within 120 days, according to a settlement filed by a special investigator who was hired by the Alaska Personnel Board to investigate an ethics complaint....

    Palin: Media sought to seek, destroy By: Andy Barr February 23, 2009 11:12 AM EST Gov. Sarah Palin (R-Alaska) believes that the media deliberately tried to bring her down during her vice presidential run. As part of an interview with conservative filmmaker John Ziegler for his new film out this week, Palin said she believes the media made a decision that “we’re going to seek and we’re going to destroy this candidacy of Sarah Palin’s because of what it is that she represents.” “Obviously something big took place in the media,” she added. It is “very frightening, I think, what...

    So his 2008 taxes aren't due till April 15, 2009.He still hasn't paid them. If Sarah Palin can be attacked for not paying her 2008 taxes, so can the head of the corrupt Tax Cheat Party. Use this in live conversations and in online "discussions" with your moonbat Lefty opponents, who were handed the Palin issue by their fellow Democrat operatives in Obama's national media machine last week:The Winter War: Democrat Tax Cheats - Why They Sent Pulitzer Winner Grimaldi Into The Guns

    You might think that Cal Thomas, as a cultural conservative, would be among the least likely of pundits to call on Sarah Palin to get out of the spotlight for the time being. But Thomas did just that on Fox News Watch this evening. The topic at hand was Greta Van Susteren’s interview of Bristol Palin, and the way the MSM focused on Bristol’s comment that abstinence “is not realistic at all.” Cal was displeased that our culture treats having a child before or after marriage as morally equivalent choices. But his call for “the Palins”—which would clearly include Sarah...

    Given the GOP’s hail-mary strategy on the Obama stimulus plan, you just knew this was coming. But still it makes you shake your head. The AP reports that as many as six Republican governors may turn their noses up at stimulus money for their states. That includes, of course, Sarah Palin 2012. According to the AP report: A half-dozen Republican governors are considering turning down some money from the federal stimulus package, a move opponents say puts conservative ideology ahead of the needs of constituents struggling with foreclosures and unemployment. Though none has outright rejected the money available for education,...

    By now you've probably seen at least one liberal media activist get all twisted and contorted with excitement about Sarah's "tax issues". They haven't wanted to investigate Geithner, or the post master, or any of these other recent money scandals that have come out. Or the thousands of federal employees who owe back taxes. I still haven't seen any liberal media outlet address that one. But here they are. First up, the liberals at CBS. And yes, they really put the BS in CBS with this one. Get the very first line: -----Alaska officials on Wednesday ruled---- On wednesday? That...

    It's Friday and instead of posting yet another blog about government, I thought I'd change it up. This week I caught wind of an intriguing story about politics and friendships and simply couldn't stop myself from doing some sleuthing to see if the story had any legs. Oh yeah it has legs and a big checkbook along with a devotion to L. Ron Hubbard. The black helicopter is about to depart.....are you getting on?

    Winter War update - Washington Things have been getting a little hot here for the new Democrat administration. Apparently, most of the Washington Democrats, and some few of the state-level Democrats, are Tax Cheats, Bribe-Takers and Perjurers. Democrat spinners and Talking Points bots on TeeVee and the various blogs and talk forums are getting their lying 8sses handed to them over the Tax Cheat issue. What's a Tax Cheat Party to do? As I predicted earlier, the Democrats have gone to their utterly predictable playbook: find a high-profile Republican(s) "tax cheat" and splash it all over the front pages and...

    AP Obama ^ | February 17th | Rachel D'Oro
    ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's first two years in office have been called a time of milk and honey, when the resource-rich state was flush with wealth from record oil prices. The second half of her term isn't looking so rosy as Palin faces her first major financial challenge as governor. The rapid decline of oil prices has left the state in a looming budget crisis and a late-entrant in the national recession. And that could have political repercussions for the former Republican vice presidential hopeful, who has signaled an interest in a 2012 presidential run but...

    Alaska officials on Wednesday ruled that Alaska governor and former GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin must pay back taxes to the IRS. The exact amount the governor must pay is not yet known, but the Associated Press estimates she owes taxes on more than $17,000 in per-diem expenses. State employees who live more than 50 miles away from Alaska's capital, Juneau, are entitled to state aid in the form of per-diem payments. Juneau is approximately 600 miles from Palin's home town of Wasilla, making the governor eligible for the payments. But before she accepted the vice presidential nomination, Palin...

    In September, after The Washington Post reported that the GOP vice presidential candidate, Alaska Gov.

Obtaining further information on the governor's taxes was difficult. . [SNIP] . When The Post followed up, asking if Palin thought it was important to pay all her taxes, Leighow responded: "Nothing I have said...

    The Winter War (Alaska) - Apparently, Obama Permanent Campaign (OPC) minions at The Washington Post have received orders from the White House to minimize the damage caused by repeated revelations of Tax Cheating by The Tax Cheat Party. Attempting to kill two birds with one slimy, excrement-ridden stone, James V. Grimaldi (D-WaPo) (who proved himself to be a reliable Obama footsoldier during the Fall campaign 2008 battles) has written a smear piece on Governor Sarah Palin which attempts to paint Palin as a tax cheat of a similar stripe as his party's Innumerable Tax Cheats. Sorry, Grimaldi - we ain't...

    MEDIA EXEC ADMITS NEW ANTI-PALIN CONSPIRACY A private source at a major New York daily newspaper has admitted on condition of anonymity that the paper is one of several working closely with an army of young bloggers and at least one TV network to ensure that the flow of negative publicity targeting Sarah Palin continues unabated for the next four years. “The thinking is, We can’t afford to let her bounce back,” he said. “If she’s all shined up and ready to go in 2012, and if ordinary people have already started to rebel against the consequences of some of...
