    When she dances on the edge of the envelope what can you expect other than that her foot will step on the wrong side of morality. A low or poor moral behavior is not a function party affiliation or ideological leaning. I do not for one nano second believe that all the allaegations are false.

The fact that she reimbursed the money says she knows she behaved questionably.
    I can understand that for me and you but we aren't governor's either. And previously, all the other first family's traveled with the governors at will and without question. And no, the fact that she repaid the money does not show questionable behavior; it shows a commitment to the reform she ran on.

    But she's damned if she does and damned if she doesn't. If she hadn't paid money, everyone would be all like "ZOMGWTFTHINKOFTHECHILDREN!!! She didn't pay one cent back" but since she did graciously reimburse the state everyone is still all "ZOMGWTFTHINKOFTHECHILDRENShepaidthemoneybackburnt hewitch!!!"

    It's disgusting and nothing short of absolute hysterics.

    I'm very disappointed in you.

    What a sexist thing to say coming from such a feminist. But I guess she just isn't the right kind of female to deserve a little respect from her peers. She doesn't have a coathanger hanging from her cooch with a dead fetus dangling from it, huh?

    When she charge back the state there was something about it involving a place that she did not actually have to pay rent. I think this is what she was paying back. It was not wrong what she did it was just a case that it looked bad. This came up during the campaign.

    Uh, yeah they do. The governor of Alaska doesn't have a designated residence like many other states.

    No, you didn't. But that doesn't stop certain elements on this forum from turning every Palin thread into a **** flinging festival just to try to make something stick. You can't discuss Palin without total reefer madness style hysteria from taking over.

    It really doesn't matter what you believe at this point, does it? But no, let's not let facts like the dismissals by a board specifically designated to police unethical activities get in the way of your smears and rants.

    I challenge you to demonstrate poor moral (although you really mean ethical) behavior on Palin's part. Please provide supporting links, analyses, and citations. Thanks.

    I'm not really expecting you to do this considering your history here, but one can hope for a little integrity, right?

    Really? Cuz she owns her house and the issue was that she used her stipend while living at home. Just like all the previous Alaskan governors. Please provide citations that point to any wrong-doing on her part.

    And what she was paying back was some, not all, of the family travel expenses.

    She is just cleaning up her droppings before she runs for the 2012 POTUS parade.

    What I recall is that she was recieving per diem for living the time she stayed in what is her 'Alaska' home town- Vasalla or Vacancia instead of the facilities and/or office space that the state provdes for the governor. That came up during the RUN FOR POTUS parade must be where you get the 'house' thing from. I do not recall if Alaska has a Govenor's mansion or not since they move their capital each time the salmon run.
