Officially he was the first gentleman of Alaska. More people called him the "first dude." But newly released e-mails show that Todd Palin was busy doing more than snow machine driving and salmon fishing during Sarah Palin's two and a half years as governor and vice presidential candidate.

Nearly 3,000 pages of e-mails that Todd Palin exchanged with state officials, which were released to msnbc.com and NBC News by the state of Alaska under its public records law, draw a picture of a Palin administration where the governor's husband got involved in a judicial appointment, monitored contract negotiations with public employee unions, received background checks on a corporate CEO, added his approval or disapproval to state board appointments and passed financial information marked "confidential" from his oil company employer to a state attorney.


But look at these tidbits:

# The governor coached her staff on how to disguise the $3,252.35 cost of electrical work at the mansion to hook up her new tanning bed.

# Palin and her staff stewed over the refusal of the state Public Safety Department to provide a plane so their children could fly to Todd's family's home in Dillingham; after all, they were going to attend a bill signing, so the travel requests could be justified. Sarah Palin called the decision "outrageous," and an aide said it provides "a great excuse to privatize" the governor's jet service.

# The manager of the Palins' travel schedule searched for a public event to use as justification ("I just need one") to charge the state for an airplane flight for Palin's daughter, Willow, who had already made the trip but missed the event given as its justification.

# When Sarah Palin complained that the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner wrote a critical editorial after she did them the favor of meeting with the editorial board, Todd Palin advised the press chief to "take the news miner off the press release address list for a few days, see how long it takes them to realize their not on the list."

As crooked as any other and a LOT more crooked than some...

...the only movement she's capable of leading is the movement of your money into her pockets.

Yeah them are some pretty evil things. Wow, we better hang her!

Just one of your bullet points gleaned from the like of MoreSlander&NothingButCommunism Network.

You do know that the majority of travel in Alaska is done by plane?

As for not allowing a paper that misrepresented her, who the frell cares.

Your socialist/fascist/corporatist in Chief attacked a specific cable outlet.

Deny ignorance.

For reference, I do not endorse Palin because I think she is a member of the two party snake.

The Clinton technique of governance I see is alive and well at ATS. Slander everyone and it makes you look better.

Nice work seethedarkness!

Stick that in your pipe and smoke it.

typical.

When it comes to your candidate of choice, it doesn't matter if they take money from taxpayers to hook up their TANNING BED... and then coach their staff on LYING ABOUT IT.



That's dandy.



Can you imagine the stink SHE WOULD RAISE if Barney Frank had done this?


I guess she doesn't look good in her $10,000 coat, without a good fake tan.




I was expecting hypocrisy, but really this is hilarious.

And by the way, mr delusional, Bush's Whitehouse specifically and repeatedly singled out MSNBC for attack:

answers.yahoo.com...


So I guess that's not really just an Obama thing, is it?

How does that justify charging tax dollars for her daughter to fly around?


As for not allowing a paper that misrepresented her, who the frell cares.


Never said she was misrepresented. They were critical and she did not like that. There is a pretty big difference.


Your socialist/fascist/corporatist in Chief attacked a specific cable outlet.


Criticized but did not exclude. Again, there is quite a difference.

People just don't learn their lesson.

Sarah Palin: No to GOP, Yes to China (and Cash)


Sarah Palin has accepted an invitation to give the keynote address in China later this month to a Hong Kong brokerage firm--a group that has come up with serious cash to have Bill Clinton, Al Gore and Alan Greenspan speak in the past.Gov-Palin-2006_web

A group with less cash, but more domestic political clout--National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW)--was disappointed to learn that Palin would not speak at their conference next week in Orlando.

Media shut out from Palin's Hong Kong speech

I actually feel bad for Palin you know, just like Barack, she's in way over her head.

The thing that makes her "special" is her arrogance.

She thinks god wants her to be President.

That's a special kind of crazy... one I'm sure many ATSers can relate to...

It looks like Palin is being groomed to be the next Puppet in Chief.

Gotta like the corporate USA government.

Selling freedoms and liberties, one taxpayer at a time.

After all the lies and deceptions you Palin bashers have come up with you just come up as the jealous black pot calling she shiny kettle names. (and no that is NOT a racist comment so don't even think about it)

So who should believe anything you say? Best go crawl back under the slimy rock from under which you emerged.

Poor sucker.

So you think we're making this stuff up?

Why not click the link... in the article (which you obviously didn't believe, cause why both with facts when you have "faith) you will find a searchable database of the emails.

If you can read that stuff and still have your faith you official quality as someone who suffers from Palin Delusion Syndrome.

Hey, folks...news flash. They're all crooked. If you went up there, you'd be crooked too. Like the farmer that will never sell his farm...until the developer shows up with more money than he'd make in 100years of farming...then sold.
My thinking is like this.... I heard a mafia guy, after making a high dollar deal, say "I love this country. Where else could I kake this kind of money... and no body better mess it up."
I'd rather have honest, sincere politicians that really care about my interests... yeah,right. The sad reality is I'll take someone that is screwing the taxpayers but preserves the USA to keep it going and thus, my way of life and all I've known is preserved, rather than someone that just really hates America and wants to change not only the country, but my way of life and the opportunities I have; for the worse.

Has anyone been Pro-Obama in the last six months on these boards? There may be a very words of congratulations or excitement whenever this administration vaguely does something good which only happens once every few months. But seriously does anyone support Obama on this site? I'm getting annoyed with people who don't know what they're talking about rambling about Obama people when I haven't seen one on this site in a long while.

If you guys are interested in making sure the whole Ron Paul "r3volution" doesn't go down the inevitable #ter due to Palin's behavior, please go express your opinions on the matter at Paul's grassroot page. Palin is dangerous to those of us who are interested in "Denying Ignorance" and we have few hopes left if the Ron and Rand end up losing the intellectual argument here.

Mods, I'm not positive if linking this is against policy or not, please forgive me if so I will edit my post.

Hmmm. That's funny. The state of Alaska collects no tax from their citizens.


Alaska is the only state that does not collect state sales tax or levy an individual income tax. To finance state operations, Alaska depends primarily on petroleum revenues. Some of its cities and other local jurisdictions, however, do collect sales tax revenue.

Source.

Can you please explain what 'money from taxpayers' you were referring to?

ALASKA Sales Taxes State Sales Tax: The state currently does not have a sales and use tax. However, 62 municipalities impose local sales taxes that range up to 7%. Anchorage does not have a sales tax. Gasoline Tax: 8 cents/gallon Diesel Fuel Tax: 8 cents/gallon Cigarette Tax: $2.00/pack of 20 (Anchorage - add $1.32) Personal Income Taxes No state income tax Retirement Income: Not taxed. Property Taxes Alaska is the only state in the United States where a large part of the land mass is not subject to a property tax. Although property tax is the primary method of raising revenues for most of the larger municipalities in the state, smaller municipalities favor a sales tax. This is due primarily to the fact that the smaller incorporated areas lack a tax base large enough to support the property tax. The unincorporated areas of the state do not have the legal authority to levy a tax. Of the 18 Boroughs, only 14 levy a property tax. Only 11 Cities located outside of Boroughs levy a property tax. Therefore, only 25 municipalities in Alaska (either cities or boroughs) levy a property tax. These 25 municipalities can be found on the Directory of Taxing Jurisdictions. Alaska taxes both real and personal property. there are several municipalities that have chosen to exempt some or all categories of personal property. For a listing of those municipalities and categories, see the Alaska Taxable information. Homeowners 65 and older (or surviving spouses 60 and older) are exempt from municipal taxes on the first $150,000 of the assessed value of their property. This also applies to disabled veterans. The average assessed value exempted from taxes for senior citizens and disabled veterans is $138,486 which equated to a tax exemption of $1,851 for 2009. In 2009, the total full value for all municipalities (over 750 in population) was $91.5 billion (including TAPS -- Trans-Alaska Pipeline). With a statewide population of 679,720 the per capita full value was $140,292. Intangible personal property is exempt from taxation. Call 907-269-6620 (Anchorage) or 907-465-2320 (Juneau) for details. Inheritance and Estate Taxes There is no inheritance tax and the estate tax is limited to federal estate tax collection. For further information, visit the Alaska Department of Revenue site.


retirementliving

Seems old people even realize they'll be paying taxes in some form, living in Alaska.

Not to mention the corp taxes, which really the stock holders end up paying as well.........

sales tax in some municipalities
property tax in some municipalities
gasoline tax
cigarette tax
additional sin taxes
business tax

What about capitol gains tax? Inheritance tax? Death tax? I really don't know...maybe some Alaskans can give their perspective. It's obvious that Alaska does have a lower tax burden than other states, but at what consequence? Having your government funded by Oil Corporations? You think the lefties like sucking the teet of socialist programs.....that's nothing in comparison of the milk/oil feeding frezy of the Corporations. The difference being, PEOPLE can vote for politicians, CEO's are anointed.


It's true dude, you live, die and pay tax EVERYWHERE SOMEHOW!!!

not much crazier than the people running around out there that think th annointed one is GOD... and remember that some of the MSM jack heads said he was to big and to important to be less than a GOD... sure makes you wonder...

Oh and i do believe that she paid for the electrical costs and the bed out of her own pocket... your arguments on that have been challenged all over the internet and have been summarily proven wrong... now unless you got the actual proof of the electrical costs, bill of sale, reciept for payment showing she did not pay for it... then you got nothing except the huffington post and washeington's toilet paper thing...
