Palin Billing The State Again

We already know about Palin billing the state of Alaska to stay in her own house. But now it appears that she also billed the state so that her kids could travel with her. here's just one part of the article:

The charges included costs for hotel and commercial flights for three daughters to join Palin to watch their father in a snowmobile race, and a trip to New York, where the governor attended a five-hour conference and stayed with 17-year-old Bristol for five days and four nights in a luxury hotel.

I don't know if she broke any laws are not, but she's definitely not coming across as a money saving reformer.

What I think is more telling though, is that after reporters asked to see the records, she started to amend the reports so it looked like her daughters were doing official state business. In one of them she stated that her daughters were "to draw two separate raffle tickets." Man, give me that job. I'll stay in first class hotels if all I have to do is draw a raffle ticket.

Why am I sooooooooo not surprised? I'm betting Alaskans would be delighted to get her out of the state.
