Carpe Per Diem

Am I supposed to be charging meals
While I am away from Juneau?
Or does per diem cover my meals—
I haven’t charged any meals to the state,
Just a couple of coffees while outside
During these six months in office.
Am I doing this right?
What about Todd’s meals
If he’s traveling for First Gentlemen duties?
Is the intent for his per diem to cover meals entirely,
Or was he to have been keeping receipts
For reimbursements?
What about family?
I’d like to be real clear.

Wherein a Palin staffer suggests to an Alaskan state official in the Department of Natural resources (read: oil pipelines) that he write Gov. Palin at her personal email address.

The latest from our Juneau Bureau. We were kind of hoping they’d tell us a little bit more about what’s redacted, but that would probably defeat the point.

TK grammar mistakes. Palin emails by the numbers.

Jokes coming over the transom about Palin emails mostly involve summer reading and paper cuts. Can’t wait.
