A Second Palin Investigation Underway!

Seems there is a second Palin investigation underway now that she has released her tax records to the public. Now the first thing that strikes the average American as ODD, is how Sarah Palin, or for that matter any politician, is entitled to $17,000 in Per Diem for staying IN HER OWN HOUSE! That's right, $17,000 for staying in her own house instead of driving the ONE HOUR into Juneau to go to work! WOW, I want that kind of a GIG. Let's put this in perspective. My mortgage on my home costs me about $1300 per month. So, if I were Governor, and worked from home instead of going into the office, I could actually PAY MY ENTIRE MORTGAGE with my Per Diem!

Now, if I owned a gas guzzling vehicle that got say 20 miles per the gallon, and I had to drive 120 miles round trip a day for the 312 days that Sarah STAYED HOME, I would have spent $7,488 in gasoline costs at $4 a gallon. What am I missing here? Sarah Palin has been Governor for basically 2 years. In that time, SHE STAYED HOME in Wasilla with her kids 312 days, or well in excess of 50 percent of the time. She then BILLED THE STATE $17,000 dollars in Per Diem, and according to this newest investigation, probably should HAVE PAID TAXES on that total. Further, it is not like she CLOSED DOWN THE GOVERNORS MANSION to save the state money. Wouldn't Alaska's taxpayers have been BETTER SERVED if Sarah Palin had MOVED HER FAMILY into the Governor's Mansion, and driving back home weekends when she was not billing the state?




Palin's per diem under review


$17,000: State will look to see if she should pay taxes on money she gets for staying in her Wasilla home.





Gov. Sarah Palin's practice of charging the state when she stays in her home must be reviewed to determine if she should pay taxes on the payments, state Finance Director Kim Garnero said Tuesday.


Palin, the Republican vice-presidential nominee, released two years' worth of tax returns last week that did not list the per diem payments she received since becoming Alaska governor in December 2006. She collected nearly $17,000 during that period for 312 nights spent in her Wasilla home about an hour's drive from Anchorage, according to state travel records.


Palin listed 157 days spent in Anchorage during 2007 on her travel forms. Garnero said Palin's work place as governor is considered to be Juneau, so she filed for the per diem payments when she stayed at her home in Wasilla.
