Sarah Palin's opacity (oops, transparency?)
Gov. Sarah Palin is telling the Alaska Public Offices Commission she doesn’t want to disclose the discount her husband, Todd, receives on purchases of Arctic Cat snowmachines.
According to the terms of his sponsorship agreement, the exact amount of the discount is confidential as a proprietary trade secret,” the governor wrote to APOC officials on Monday.
APOC may buy this BS, but would the IRS be so lenient?
Sarah Palin is truly transparent, her administration is shrouded in it.
Celtic Diva was sent a jargon-ridden letter about how long their incompetent, stone age IT people take to retrieve e-mails when somebody requests information under FOIA and how the costs to requesters escalate accordingly.
People have to pay through the nose for their incompetence and there's a very high probability of paying thousands of dollars for blank, redacted pages.
Sarah Palin's administration play the "transparency" game really well. They deserve a trophy...
