Palin Comes Clean on Undisclosed Paid Trips

December 3, 2008 · Leave a Comment

In what can now only be viewed as a pattern of a failure to comply with Alaskan requirements to reveal third-party gifts in the form of travel expenses for Palin and her family, the Governor recently retroactively filed the disclosures on November 17th.

Please note the date – well after the completion of the Presidential campaign.

The trips occurred in April and May of 2007, and State law requires disclosures be filed within 30 days.  The State government has said it does not intend to apply sanctions.

The total value of the trips, hotels and other gifts (like cowboy boots) for Palin and her family, including Todd’s travel to the Republican Governor’s convention was $8,000 – presumably just the price of one good DNC-paid suit from Neiman Marcus.

Palin blamed the failure on “staff oversight.”

Read about it in the AP story “Palin files late disclosure for free trips.”
