The Governor, for instance, charged the state of Alaska a $60 per diem expense for an appearance on Fox News on November 9, 2008. A few weeks later, she billed taxpayers another $60 for a "phone call with Sen. Elizabeth Dole." (Dole had lost her reelection bid weeks earlier). On the 26th of November, Palin again turned in a $60 meal/incidental expense per diem report for "Phone call with Gov. Rendell, interview."
While all this appears to be "legal", I'm sure that the Alaskan taxpayers that have to foot this bill won't exactly be pleased.
You can read Palin's November and December expense reports to see how these charges are either a bit much or just curious in nature.
