Another Day Another Ethics Complain Against Palin’s Corruption

Transparency! Government accountability! Anti-pork! $50,000 of tax payer money to shuttle your kids around America on a private plane! Oops… [via CBSNews]

Alaska Governor and Republican Vice President hopeful Sarah Palin may be facing another round of scrutiny, this time for charging the state for her children to travel with her while conducing official state business.

Bristol, Piper and Willow, Palin’s daughters, accrued $32,629 in travel expenses while Palin’s husband Todd raked up $22,174 – all billed to the state for a total of $54,803.00.

“The Governor’s office has expended $54,803.00 in Alaska state dollars for family travel since December 2006,” according to the Governor’s Administrative Services Director, Linda Perez. “The documentation related to family travel has changed and you have to keep in mind that the governor and her family are very popular,” added Perez.

So Sarah Palin is the economically conservative and responsible maverick, but she has no problem spending $150,000 on her wardrobe, giving her kids thousand dollar handbags, or using tax payer money to fly her kids around the US?

    are we surprised? Palin is an absolute hypocrite – saying she saved the State so much money, while squandering taxpayers’ money on her (and her family’s) travel/personal expenses
    this is why so many public sector departments are in the red nowadays thanks to public officials using taxpayer money to benefit their own personal agendas. when is this going to be stopped? we are sick and tired of hearing about our honest-to-goodness hard earned money being used for making politicians and government bureaucrats more comfortable than they already are and Palin is the worst of all of them.
