Huffington Post was the journal that outed the Palin's in 2010 for evading property taxes on a remote cabin that was gorgeous and probably, from what we now know, built with Todd's illegal prostitution money, or possible from a good year of gambling winnings.
Is it only coincidence that on Bristol's blog today she put up pictures of the cabin? Yup, the same one. The one Sarah and Todd failed in their civic duty to pay the taxes on it until a certain blogger got an anonymous tip and outed them in the Huffington Post.
Bristol's post has only six comments so far. My thought is that maybe a few Palin Place readers would like to add to the conversation over there.
Before you go, let me provide some material for you to mix and match and make the thread over there more interesting than the usual pablum of simpering platitudes posted by Palin sycophants. All of this comes from Jeanne Devon's blog published by the Huffington Post Feb, 3, 2010 . Some of you might want to link to it.
Sarah ran for governor on a campaign promoting herself as ethical, being different, being a reformer. It was a sham.
Palin Declined to Appear in Ads for A Candidate Because He Had Not Paid His Property Taxes. In 2004, it came to light that Republican Rep. Vic Kohring owed the borough $2,277 in unpaid property taxes on property he owns off Knik-Goose Bay Road, according to borough records. "That bothered former Wasilla Mayor Sarah Palin enough that she declined a campaign request to do a pro-Kohring TV commercial. As a former mayor, Palin said, it made her uncomfortable to back someone with unpaid taxes when the city relies on property taxes." [Anchorage Daily News (Alaska), 10/28/04After John McCain and Sarah Palin were defeated, 17 months had passed when Ms. Devon received the information below by anonymous letter delivered by the U.S. Postal Service:
Todd and Sarah are now millionaires, but they shirk their responsibility to pay local property taxes.
Attached are printed copies of Matanuska-Susitna Borough tax assessments from the public website (address shown at the bottom) regarding two lake frontage properties the Palins own in the Petersville Hills. Safari Lake is a gorgeous location, with stunning views of Mt. McKinley and the surrounding terrain.
Please note that two parcels total almost 20 acres and are assessed for a total value of $30,000. Also, there is a $0 value regarding any buildings on the property.
Any photos or visual inspection of the properties would clearly reveal that there are two large "cabins" on the property that are well built, and include thousands of dollars worth of improvements and amenities. The buildings are clearly nicer than many people's homes.
Also on the property is a large shop for snowmachines and four-wheelers.
These buildings have been on the property for years now - yet the Palins have done nothing to correct the assessment.
Fridays and weekends are pretty quiet around here and around the blogosphere in general. Maybe together we can stir things up and cause some discomfort for Sarah, Todd and Bristol. At the very least, we will make Nancy French, (Bristol's ghost blog writer), earn her PAC money today.
