Ex-Alaska Governor Palin reports receiving 15 gifts costing over 250 dollars
Juneau (Alaska, US), Aug.19 (ANI): Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has reported receiving more than a dozen gifts last year, including a gun case, a glass elephant and a statue of the Virgin Mary.
In a filing Monday with the Alaska Public Offices Commission by her attorney, Thomas V. Van Flein, Palin listed 15 gifts worth more than 250 dollars.
Under state law, the former Republican governor and 2008 vice presidential candidate is not required to disclose the many gifts that she received - often at political events - that are appraised at less than 250 dollars.
According to Politico, the 15 gifts came from a dozen different states. None were from Alaska, though a Canadian woman from Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, sent some prints.
Only one gift came from Washington, D.C. - 10 copies of the book "The Audacity of Deceit: Barack Obama's War on American Values," from Associated Television News.
The gun case, with "Sarah" embroidered on it, was given by a man from Tennessee. Other gifts included a goatskin-bound Bible, an embroidered cross-stitched blanket, a hand-painted plate featuring Palin, two handmade Army flags and assorted jewelry.
Palin also received 19 books and three CDs, many with Christian themes, from a woman in Indiana. (ANI)
