Skip to comments.Mark Begich: Sarah Palin may not be Alaska resident

Sarah Palin quit on Alaska as governor and has lost touch with her home state, Mark Begich told POLITICO.
The Democratic senator said Palin, who said Tuesday shes considering challenging him for his seat in 2014, might not even be a resident of Alaska and is someone he wont take seriously unless she emerges from a competitive Republican primary.
I dont know if shes a resident. Shes been away from Alaska a lot and has probably lost touch with whats going on. She should go to my webpage, Begich said. Most Alaskans I see on a pretty regular basis, but I havent seen her for a long time.
During an interview Wednesday with POLITICO, Begich questioned four times whether Palin is even a resident of the state she once governed and said his campaign wont go on the offensive against Palin unless she can handle Joe Miller and Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell in a primary.
A Republican primary in Alaska? She may not survive, he said, one of a bundle of choice remarks for the former vice presidential candidate.
Begich, a former mayor of Anchorage, has known Palin for years. He said his sister played basketball with Palin but theres no love lost between the two.
I take every candidate seriously that is if shes still a resident, but you know she quit on Alaska what she was governor, Begich said. Shes been somewhat vacant from the state and quit on the state, so I wish her the best on her potential run.

Boy is that Rich
Democrat Senators can live anywhere they want.
Does she pay taxes there?
She’s an Arizona resident, now. And we need her to replace McCain, so hands off, Alaska! :)
Hillary, cough, cough....
Says the guy who lives in DC.
She’s probably not a US citizen. Not constitutionally eligible. The media will be all over this!
She IS NOT an Arizona resident. Having a second place through a LLC partnership doesn’t mean that she is a permanent resident of Arizona
LOL Begich, scared much? He should change his name to Biatch because that is what he is, a mega b*tch
She and Todd pay property tax on this parcel of land:
So I guess that she STILL is an Alaska Resident!
Born February 11, 1964 in Sandpoint, ID (Meets the Jus Soli Requirement)
Charles R Heath, born in ID
Sarah Sheeran, born in WI
Both parents were US Citizens at the time of her birth (Meets the Jus Sanguinis Requirement)
Sarah Palin is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN
Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama ISN'T!
Maybe she’s a resident of Kenya now...would this a@@hole like her better then?
That's okay. We have a Democrat President who may not even be a natural-born citizen, who seems to be on the golf course or on taxpayer-paid vacations a lot. Has our President lost touch with what's going on?
And Obama’s a citizen of Kenya—What’s your point, Mark?
That’s stupid. Sarah is obviously a native Alaskan. She’s no carpetbagger. Nothing wrong with getting away from the cold for a while (speaking as a New Englander!). And she was the state’s governor a short four years ago. I doubt things in Alaska of all places would have changed that much in so short a period.
And she need only be a resident of the state at the time of the election. That’s easy to do. Hillary Clinton did it. And she wasn’t born in New York, had never lived there, or been a mayor of a town there, or been the state’s governor. Give me a break!
She still has that house where that creepy author moved in next to her, doesn’t she? She’s a resident.
If Hillary lived in New York, then Sarah lived in Alaska.
