Palin discloses gifts in amended report

Posted: Wednesday, August 19, 2009

ANCHORAGE - A personalized gun case, a Bible bound in goat skin and a hand-painted plate featuring Sarah Palin's likeness were among gifts the former governor received this year.

The gifts have been included in an amended disclosure form filed with the Alaska Public Office Commission.

State law requires politicians to list gifts with a value of $250 or more, but Palin's attorney, Thomas Van Flein, included gifts with unknown values in case they exceed the threshold.

The gifts were delivered to the governor's offices in Juneau or Anchorage, to the governor's mansion and Palin's home, and to the homes of her parents and in-laws.

Among other gifts reported were a glass elephant, jewelry, books, CDs and an Army flag.

The former Republican vice presidential candidate resigned as Alaska's governor July 26.
