    Umm...I just heard live on MSNBC during the RNC brodcast that the Palin family used to own a car wash in Alaska but was shut down not too long ago for not filing taxes. I couldn't find an article about this. Anyone else heard this?

  2. lol. don't get your panties in a wad just yet.

    McInsane picked palin for her ass. Otherwise she's as dumb as the rest of you. Only more ambitious.

    You can bet there is much more shit on her that even conservatives would never think of making up against their enemies.

    The liberals are laughing at you. And the entire world is laughing right along with them.

    After rewinding my dvr, it was a car wash that was shut down by the state, not a gas station. my apologies.

    Palin Scrubbing Turns Up an Undeclared Car Wash
    Updated 7:28 p.m.

    By Matthew Mosk
    ST. PAUL -- In addition to being a mayor and raising four children, Sarah Palin found time for another venture in her Wasilla years -- she was part-owner of an Anchorage car wash.

    Palin and husband Todd each held a 20 percent stake in Anchorage Car Wash LLC, according to state corporation records filed in 2004.

    A review of Palin's gubernatorial disclosure filings indicates that she failed to report her stake in the company on the form that requires candidates for governor to disclose any interest in a nonpublicly traded company.

    The car wash venture was not entirely smooth sailing. State records show the business ran into trouble with Alaska's division of corporations business and professional licensing after Palin became governor of the state in 2006.

    A Feb. 11, 2007 letter to the governor's business partner advises that the car wash had "not filed its biennial report and/or paid its biennial fees," which were more than a year overdue.

    The warning letter was written on state letterhead, which carried Palin's name at the top, next to the state seal.

    On April 3, 2007, the state went further and issued a "certificate of involuntary dissolution" because of the car wash's failure to file its report and pay state licensing fees.

    Palin's gubernatorial disclosure filings also reveal her involvement in another failed startup -- a marketing business which was to go by the name Rouge Cou, which evidently is a literal French translation of "red neck." On the 2005 form, Palin describes the firm as one for which she secured a license but did not conduct any business.

    stuff is just popping up all over the place.

    Palin's Lobbyist Has Abramoff Ties

    It looks like Sarah Palin's claim to represent a cleaner brand of politics could be about to take a bruising.

    The Washington Post reports today that, while Mayor of Wasilla, Palin oversaw the hiring of a lobbyist, Steven Silver -- a former chief of staff to now-indicted GOP senator Ted Stevens -- to help win federal earmarks for the city.
  6. So that you guys know, when a business makes no money (or fails), the first thing that happens is that it probably doesn't file it's annual registration form, or pay the fees. It's not illegal. It happens every day, in every state in the nation.

    Daily Kos strikes again. LOL.

    By the way, you got damn near everything you posted wrong...but hey, who cares about facts eh?


  7. you need to shut the fuck up and deal with the issues.

    Don't bash the source

    Refute the information.

    No wonder you people get no respect.
  8. Are you saying that her city shouldn't have tried to get earmarks? Ever checked into the earmarks by every member of Congress? Try Joe Biden...lets see how much in earmarks his district has received. LOL.

    I've now elevated you to the level of moron.

  9. You wouldn't know an issue if it hit you in the ass, moron.
