Sarah Palin: Mother of the Wasilla Sales Tax

So not only did she want to raise the tax, but she played a central role in creating a new tax in Wasilla

Voters in Wasilla bucked tradition Tuesday and, by a slim margin, approved plans to start a police department financed by the city's first-ever sales tax. "I'd feel safer saying this if the margin was wider, but I think Wasilla finally sees the light. People see the need for change," said Sarah Palin, 28. Palin, a political newcomer, was one of two supporters of the police-sales tax plan elected to the city council Tuesday.

Granted, a police department would be common sense anywhere except Alaska. But still, she's a tax-hiker.
