Palin faces ethics complaint over kids' travel
New complaint charges VP hopeful of charging state for kids' travel
ANCHORAGE, Alaska - A new ethics complaint has been filed against Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, accusing the Alaska governor of abusing her power by charging the state when her children traveled with her.
The complaint alleges that the Republican vice presidential nominee used her official position as governor for personal gain. It follows a report by The Associated Press last week that Palin charged the state more than $21,000 for her three daughters' commercial flights, including events where they weren't invited, and later ordered their expense forms amended to specify official state business.
In some cases, Palin also has charged the state for hotel rooms for the girls.
It's sort of amazing how much baggage this woman has and how many skeletons are in her closet. Obviously, she think public funds are her personal piggy bank.
I guess Ted Stevens WAS her mentor.
