Evidence is building every day that Sarah Palin is a fraud.
Consider the latest mini-scandal about Palin billing taxpayers for the 300 nights she spent at home during her first year-and-a-half in the governor's office.
Curiously, her expense report covers reimbursement for sending her husband on state-paid “errands.” She also got paid back for her kids’ travel.
Her official excuse is that she didn’t spend as much as the last governor. Weak.
It’s not the dollars; it’s the ethics.
Palin was away from the state capital so much that Alaskan legislators wore yellow pins asking “Where’s Sarah?”
She’s a huckster. Her approach to government is riddled with lies and omissions.
The chef? Still on the state payroll. She didn’t really fire the cook but merely reassigned the job to a different part of the budget.
The bridge to nowhere? She never reveals that she kept the millions of federal money in Alaska anyway.
The airplane? Not sold on eBay as she carefully alludes. McCain, caught in her propwash, swears she sold it on eBay at a profit. Actually, the plane sold at a loss to an Alaskan businessman.
The trooper? He should have been fired.
Sarah Palin has an awful record which has only been revealed to us in the few days since she became a candidate. Makes you wonder what else is out there?
