Today’s Washington Post headlines:Professor David Bernstein concludes at Volokh Conspiracy:
[Palin] apparently maintained two residences, the governor's mansion in Juneau, which by state law is her official work "base" and where assumedly she didn't get a per diem (but where her predecessor had a personal chef whom she let go), and Wasilla, from where she commuted to Anchorage for work when the legislature wasn't in session.No, not illegal, not unethical, and not a scandal.
Saintly to take the per diem she was legally entitled to when in the second residence? No.
Worthy of the lead headline on Washingtonpost.com? Please!
Not illegal, not unethical, and not a scandal. (Emphasis added)
But the members of Obama’s Tank Corp at the Washington Post were able to fire a hit piece at Gov. Palin anyway.
WaPo’s hit piece is here. Bernstein’s takedown of it's here.
