Dear Senator McCain

Here is Gov. Palin’s list of earmark requests from February 2008. [PDF file—and a damn big one. – LG]

Will you please stop telling the American people that she never asked for or received any pork barrel projects?

Respectfully,

Jake

UPDATE: From ThinkProgress:

Last week, John McCain claimed that Sarah Palin had never sought earmarks as the governor of Alaska. But state records show that “Palin has asked U.S. taxpayers to fund $453 million in specific Alaska projects over the past two years,” including “more than $130 million in federal funds that would benefit Alaska’s fishing industry and an additional $9 million to help Alaska oil companies.”
