Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, in a new installment of her interview with ABC News’s Charlie Gibson, backed earmarks and her right, both as a governor and a mayor, to request and secure them — just don’t call them earmarks. Call it “infrastructure.”

“I was for infrastructure being built in the state,” she said, “and it’s not inappropriate for a mayor or for a governor to request and to work with their Congress, their congressmen, their congresswomen, to plug in to the federal budget along with every other state a share of the federal budget for infrastructure.” Source Article
