Palin Latest: State To Review Governor's Tax Payments

Thank goodness for Sarah Palin, whose conduct as Alaska governor is hardly the record the conservatives would like the public to believe.

Let's take those per diem payments she charged to the state for nights she stayed at her own home. It now turns out that she didn't pay taxes on that income, which may be a problem.

Here's part on an the AP report on the governor's latest problem:
ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Alaska 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.
