Any Comment, Buddy?

Philip R. Klein has consistently expressed his profound admiration for VP candidate and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Philip has further stated on several occasions that Palin represents the future of the Republican Party.

I though Philip might find this interesting:

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- Gov. Sarah Palin charged the state for her children to travel with her, including to events where they were not invited, and later amended expense reports to specify that they were on official business.

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has charged the state $21,012 for her three daughters' plane flights.

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.

In all, Palin has charged the state $21,012 for her three daughters' 64 one-way and 12 round-trip commercial flights since she took office in December 2006. She also has charged the state for hotel rooms for the girls.

Alaska law does not specifically address expenses for a governor's children. The law allows for payment of expenses for anyone conducting official state business.

Considering the results of the first inquiry into her abuse of power and recent developments in the second ongoing inquiry, I think this looks like more of Philip's "same old think, over and over and over again:"
