Vetting your life away

How will this play in Peoria?
Palin Billed State for Nights Spent at Home

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has billed taxpayers for 312 nights spent in her own home during her first 19 months in office, charging a "per diem" allowance intended to cover meals and incidental expenses while traveling on state business.

The governor also has charged the state for travel expenses to take her children on official out-of-town missions. And her husband, Todd, has billed the state for expenses and a daily allowance for trips he makes on official business for his wife.

If she can squirm her way out of this one, she is formidable!

UPDATE: A closer look makes me doubt that this will do her in. It could even play up the 'Sarah victim of the Media theme'. But she is on thin ice, the WaPo doesn't do these articles lightly.
