It seems that Sarah Palin spent too much money while Governor of Alaska. How do I know? The WaPo says so. She spent $122,970 in travel expenses in her first nine months. Extrapolated to a year, it ends up being $164,000 or so.
Frank Murkowski spent, during his term, $525K, $255K, $217K, and $275K. Tony Knowles, his Democrat predecessor, spent $278K and $210K in his last two years in office.
She's really fleecin' 'em, huh?
