Since former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin first burst onto America’s television screens in fall of 2008, there have been many questions swirling around this previously unknown political phenomenon.
Not much vetting was done by the McCain campaign and virtually none has been done since McCain and Palin lost the election. Rather Palin has become a reality tv star, a fox news correspondent, a speech giver and a tv celebrity, but no real questions have been asked and no real research has been done. Not by the traditional means of research anyway.
In Alaska however it has been long known since Palin’s time as Mayor of Wasilla that there have been many questions about this woman and her ability to obtain wealth and power without much work, education or effort.

Research Regarding Palin’s Financial Dealings
Looking into Sarah’s Finances
This post lists the Palins’ properties and expensive toys, including several photos. Apart form the new chateau, all properties were acquired before Sarah Palin’s book deal.
Sarah Palin leading the way in tax dodges
When Mudflats first reported that the Palins had not paid property taxes on the cabin, Sarah Palin’s lawyer, Mr Thomas Van Flein, said it is not the owners responsibility to notify the authorities of any changes to the property. The Palins built the very large cabin sometime after 2005, didn’t notify the Mat-Su Borough and paid taxes on the land only for a number of years, with buildings appraised at zero value.
Looking at Sarah Palin’s Legal Trust Fund from a Criminal Law Perspective
The AFT website, which exists to solicit donations to the fund, states in the FAQs page: The Trust Fund is being created to assist the Governor, her family, and staff in paying legal expenses and costs incurred from previous investigations as well as future complaints filed. Her staff is similarly being targeted by these complaints and has also incurred and is incurring significant costs.
Investigator Tim Petumenos rules: Sarah Palin’s “Alaska Fund Trust” (Legal Defense Fund) was illegal – UPDATE: THE SCANDAL CONTINUES!
“An investigator for the Alaska Personnel Board says a legal defense fund set up for Sarah Palin when she was governor was illegal. Investigator Timothy Petumenos said Thursday the Alaska Fund Trust inappropriately used the word “official” on its website, wrongly implying Palin’s endorsement as governor.
Palin Cabins Not Worthless After All – Palin Says $0, Taxman Says $99,700
The sun is shining, the days are longer, the snow is melting. It’s that time of year. Step outside and breathe deep. Ahhhhhh…. Nothing like the smell of property tax assessments in the morning. Nobody really likes it, but we realize that our communities need things like roads, and firefighters, and we at least realize that we’re all members of the community, and we all share this burden for the benefit of all.
Questions regarding Palin’s Honesty and Ethics
Is Sarah Palin a Pathological Liar?
Does Sarah Palin know how to tell the truth? A growing chorus of critics — Republicans, Democrats and non-partisan organizations — are using words like “fabrications,” “fiction,” and “lies” to characterize Palin’s version of events in her new book. The AP fact-checked the volume and noted that she had “gone rogue with the truth.” Palin insists that “Going Rogue” is “fact,” but given the increasing evidence of disingenuousness, the question arises: Does Sarah Palin have a lying problem?
Sarah Palin confronted by citizen of Homer, AK; see how she and her family respond
She couldn’t just walk by. Only a few fishermen and tourists would have seen the banner, but Sarah had to stop and protest. I spoke with Kathleen. She said she wanted Palin to know how she felt, but never dreamed she’d get the chance to say to her face, “You’re not a leader, you’re a climber!” Early in the conversation, Sarah actually winked at Kathleen in what seemed to be a case of eyelid Tourette’s Syndrome. At one point, a Palin daughter chanted, “You’re just jealous”. Kathleen told Sarah she was disappointed that she dropped her responsibility to the state to became a celebrity. Palin said incredulously, “I’m honored. No, she thinks I’m a celebrity!”
Voices from the Flats – Palin Lies on Leno
by Geoffrey Dunn Sarah Palin’s penchant for duplicity followed her to Hollywood and the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, on which she predictably praised the Tea Party Movement and heralded “the fairness, the balance” at Fox News. She even did a stilted turn as a stand-up comic — dishing out sophomoric digs at Congress and
Sarah Palin goes on Greta and Hannity and grossly distorts the details of Willow’s facebook insults, once again claims victimhood for the whole family
Today I would like to highlight a fact which has not received enough attention in the media: The fact that Palin distorts the details of the recent “Willow-facebook-scandal” by presenting the real events in a bizarre way and declaring Willow to be a victim. She apparently believes that no-one will check her claims and accusations.
Andrew Sullivan calls out Palin for pimping out her kids and then blaming the media for the attention.
Where to start? Her first decision was agreeing to run for vice-president with a months’ old child with Down Syndrome and a pregnant teenage daughter. You do that, your kids will be at least somewhat in the public eye. But she blindsides the campaign with the teen pregnancy, puts out her own press release about it the Saturday before the convention, and in the same chaotic weekend, the campaign also has to deal with the bizarre details of her one-month public pregnancy and bi-continental, airplane labor with Trig. Anyone one who genuinely cared about the privacy of her kids would have either said no or been extremely careful to release the information as soberly as possible.
Palin Ethics Complaint #13…a Baker’s Dozen (Updated)
Another ethics complaint was filed today against Governor Sarah Palin. That makes a baker’s dozen! Somewhere there’s got to be a lawyer who will charge for the first twelve and do the 13th one free. You know….like a punch card. Eagle river resident Kim Chatman charges that Palin’s newly formed “Alaska Fund Trust” violates…..
The Lies of Sarah Palin: A Mudflats Exclusive Interview with Geoffrey Dunn

SarahPAC: Research regarding Palin’s political PAC
SarahPAC second and third quarter 2010 – Summary – PLUS: FEC questions SarahPAC – What is Sarah Palin doing with her mysterious company Pie Spy LLC?
The FEC has asked SarahPAC Treasurer Timothy Crawford to provide additional information related to the latest PAC filings. These FEC notices of deficiency and request for corrected information come as no surprise. An August 11 FEC letter of deficiency requested further information

Yet she or her PAC received 2 letters, one an August 11 FEC letter of deficiency, which required an answer by September 15th, and then a second FEC letter listing deficiencies that was dated November 10. The problem was a systematic failure on abiding by federal regulations of having all the pertinent information of contributions of over $200 or more.

Religiongate: Questions regarding Palin’s Religious Connections
Sarah Palin and her dominionist friends Mary Glazier and Thomas Muthee – “The second weakest link”
It seems that Sarah had forgotten, or thought that nobody would remember, that she herself is associated for many years with religious extremists – for example with the dominionist Mary Glazier or with the Pentecostal Wasilla Assembly of God. And let’s not forget witch hunter Thomas Muthee, who first delivered a radical dominionist sermon in 2005 and then anointed Sarah Palin afterwards in the Wasilla Assembly of God, so that she will be protected from “witchcraft”.
Sarah Palin, The State and Religion
The camera closes in on Sarah Palin speaking to young missionaries, vowing from the pulpit to do her part to implement God’s will from the governor’s office. What she didn’t tell worshippers gathered at the Wasilla Assembly of God church in her hometown was that her appearance that day came courtesy of Alaskan taxpayers, who picked up the $639.50 tab for her airplane tickets and per diem fees.
Max Blumenthal speaks about “Republican Gomorrah” (Video) – Why John McCain chose Sarah Palin
“During a June radio broadcast, James Dobson presented McCain with a stark decision: Pick an anti-abortion politician or lose movement support as Bob Dole had in 1996. ‘I am not endorsing Senator Mccain today,’ Dobson said . ‘ I don’t know who his vice presidential candidate would be. He might even chose a pro-abortion candidate, and it would not be unlike him to do that because he seems to enjoy frustrating conservatives on that account. … While I’m not endorsing John McCain, the possibility is there that I might.’
Sarah Palin Religiongate
Sarah Palin’s behaviour regarding church and state is not only unethical, it’s unconstitutional as well. Let’s have a look at what has been uncovered so far: $639.50 to address the “Master’s Commission” at the Wasilla Assembly of God. This is just one instance of travel and per diem claimed from the state to attend a religious event. $13,000 in taxpayer funds for the Governor and the First Family to attend at least 10 religious events and meetings with Christian pastors, including Franklin Graham, the son of evangelical preacher Billy Graham. $25,000 in state money given to the Assemblies of God Juneau Christian Center.
Housegate: Research regarding the construction and finance of Palin’s numerous properties
For many years questions about the construction of her home and the similarities to the infamous & controversial Wasilla Sports Complex.
Sarah Palin’s Real Estate Impropriety (Video)
By popular demand, I am reposting this story about Mayor Sarah Palin eliminating building permits before her personal home AND the Wasilla Sports Complex were constructed in Wasilla, Alaska. The post originally appeared on the Sarah Palin Truth Squad back in October 14, 2008.
The Palin family home is a two-storey, 3,450-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-bath, wood house situated on Lake Lucille. According to Palin’s income tax returns, the house was assessed at more than half a million dollars — $552,000 to be exact.
Housegate – questions
There are some interesting similarities between Sarah’s house and the Wasilla sports complex. The glass panelled balustrade featured in Matt Lauer’s interview after the election (from around 3:35 to the end) bear a striking resemblance to those in the complex. The windows look similar too. Let’s put it this way: the windows of the house look like those one would find in a commercial building, same goes for the glass balustrade. We know both the contractors working on the complex and the Palins used the same builders materials supplier, Spenard.
Sarah Palin’s house
This appeared on Sourcing from China:There’s possible federal indictments against Palin, concerning an embezzlement scandal related to the building of Palin’s house and the Wasilla Sports Complex built during her tenure as Mayor.
Sarah’s housegate returns
A fellow blogger has put a together a meaningful collection of photos of Sarah’s house and the Wasilla sports complex. I raised the same points in Housegate – questions, but didn’t have such good photos to support my arguments. The new photos show the glass balustrade and railings in their full glory!
Sarah Palin, money, houses… (and a PS)
So our Sarah is building a chateau nextdoor to the house Todd built and has designs on another adjacent house. OK. She can do that.
Babygate: Research regarding Palin’s Supposed 5th Pregnancy
Many questions still surround the conception of Palin’s fifth child Trig. Mainly because Palin’s own story of her labor during two flights and layovers and road travel in Alaska are nothing short of make believe, but also because Palin has refused to show a birth certificate or any other proof of Trig’s birth. Rumors of her daughter Bristol’s pregnancy in 2007 around Alaska and Wasilla led to and still encourages many to dig deeper into the birth of Palin’s last child.

Watch two new videos, outlining the evidence regarding Sarah’s faked pregnancy:

Sarah’s 5-Day Pregnancy Solved!
How? How could anybody have been fooled by such a careless attempt to fake a pregnancy? She was able to fake this pregnancy with the strategic use of SCARVES? How ignorant are people?I think when all of this is said and done THAT is the question that must be asked of every Palin staff worker, every so called Alaskan reporter, and every person who swore up and down that they KNEW she was pregnant and MUST have had that baby.
A Tale of Two Babies by Sarah Palin
“It was the best of times; it was the worst of times…”
For Sarah Palin back in March of 2008, this was especially true.She was right in the middle of trying to convince the people of Alaska that, despite all appearances, she was indeed pregnant with her fifth child, after surprising even her own staff with the news on March 6th. (Though at first she did not seem to put a lot of effort into convincing people as you can see from this photograph taken on March 29th, at the Spouses’ Luncheon. This is a scant twenty short days prior to Trig’s “birth.” You will notice that she’s wearing what appears to be a raincoat inside of her own house. And there’s nothing under those hands but a black scarf.)
Who’s not your mama?
If a picture is worth a thousand words then this graphic is worth ten thousand. Amidst all the discussion over who Trig’s mother may be, some of our readers have stepped forward to gently remind us that a crucial message may be lost in the debate – the one message upon which this blog was founded. That message: Given the evidence, it is highly, highly suspect that Sarah Palin gave birth to the Trig Palin.
Sarah Palin Lies
On August 29th, John McCain announced his selection of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin for his vice presidential nominee. Within hours, the country was on a roller-coaster ride as rumors swept the Internet that she had faked a pregnancy, just five months previously, to cover for her seventeen-year-old daughter, Bristol. Then only one day later, the story was just as abruptly brought to a halt with the announcement that that same daughter Bristol was five months pregnant, thus ruling out her having given birth in mid-April.
AIPgate: Questions regarding Sarah and Todd Palin’s Connections to The Alaskan Independence Party (AIP)
The Palin’s un-American Activities
Only one problem. The quote is from Joe Vogler, the raging anti-American who founded the Alaska Independence Party. Inconveniently for Palin, that’s the very same secessionist party that her husband, Todd, belonged to for seven years and that she sent a shout-out to as Alaska governor earlier this year. (“Keep up the good work,” Palin told AIP members. “And God bless you.”)
Palin’s e-mail battle with the McCain camp over the AIP connection
Schmidt didn’t want distractions, though, and wisely wasn’t about to let the issue get bigger. In response, he wrote: Ignore it. He was a member of the aip? My understanding is yes. That is part of their platform. Do not engage the protestors. If a reporter asks say it is ridiculous. Todd loves america.
Video: ‘Sarah Palin Member of the AIP’
The first video shows the vice chairman of the Alaska Independence Party, Dexter Clark, addressing a meeting of party members. It’s interesting to note what he says about Sarah Palin six minutes into the video.
Dairygate: Research regarding the Mataunuska Maid Dairy in Alaska
During Palin’s time as Governor contracts with the failing Mat-Su Dairy were also questioned by many and still are. Contaminated product, wasted federal funds, Palin’s friends all employed/profiting from failing Dairy. The Dairy has received several questionable loans and extensions and are now in deep default. All are Palin appointees and friends. Most have no experience or qualifications for running a dairy.

Another questionable aspect of Sarah Palin’s time as Governor is the many questions surrounding the Prison system in Alaska.

The man she appointed to run the state’s prison system has just an Associates Degree in Criminal Justice. Less than most State Police.

Troopergate: Reasearch regarding Palin’s involvement in the firing of Police Commissioner that Refused to fire former Palin Brother In-Law at Palin’s request
Shortly after Palin was chosen by John McCain as a running mate we learned that during Palin’s time as Governor of Alaska she was accused of violating ethics for putting pressure on a police commissioner to fire her sister’s ex-husband. When Commissioner Monegan refused to fire him for personal reasons, Monegan himself was fired. Palin was found to be guilty of violating ethics in her state, yet to this day claims she was vindicated.
