Alaska blog Mudflats, and now the Associated Press, have jumped on the story that Palin failed to pay property taxes on two cabins built on land she partially owns. Her attorney says it's not her fault.
He argues that it's not a property owners' responsibility to report structures so they can be taxed. The state say it is. Palin's spokeswoman, Meghan Stapleton, meanwhile, pulled out her well-worn victim card, telling the AP by email:"This is another blatant attempt to manufacture a story about the Palins following more defamatory swipes."
