Palin has been charging the State per diem for sleeping in her own home

Well, well. The woman who abhors pork that legislatures earmark into legislation (unless she get it) has been charging the state of Alaska per diem for the nights she stayed at home in her own bed. That's 312 nights per diem she has charged to the taxpayers for spending the night in her own home is 19 months in office. Per diem is an allowance intended to cover meals and incidental expenses that the individual has to pay while traveling on state business. The employee's salary is supposed to be used to pay for that person's home and meals eaten there.

Since she wasn't traveling those 312 nights that should also have been reported on her income tax as income. Anyone want to bet that income wasn't reported to the IRS?
