This Just In: Palin's Daughter in Ride Share


By Keith Epstein

Sarah Palin has taken some minor heat in the blogosphere for failing to report some of her business interests on Alaska financial disclosure forms while in government – for instance, a 40% total stake with husband Todd in an Anchorage car wash and the founding of a marketing firm named Rouge Cou (French for “red neck”).

But on other matters she appears to have meticulous in reporting anything someone might imagine having even the faintest whiff of a conflict of interest.

To wit, this, exactly as it appears on the 13th page of Palin’s 2007 disclosure form, filed in March 2008 while governor:

No word on who was driving. Both mothers were probably too busy for carpools. Wendy Chamberlain is registered with the state as a lobbyist for numerous interests, from Anheuser-Busch and Marathan Oil to state associations of the cruise ship, real estate, and car dealers’ industries, as well as the cities of Nome and Anchorage.

Palin also lists son Track’s $8.50 hourly job at a snowboarding shop.
