Latest Palin Problem: Billing Taxpayers for Staying at Home

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has found a sweet deal—charging the taxpayers for nights spent in her own home. 

The Washington Post is reporting the story, which is at odds with Palin's reputation as a reformer and tight-fisted fiscal conservative. 

From the Post
ANCHORAGE--Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has billed taxpayers for 312 nights spent in her own home during her first 19 months in office, charging a "per diem" allowance intended to cover meals and incidental experses while traveling on state business.
