Remember how Sarah Failin quit "to save Alaska money"? Yeah, about that....
Early estimates put the cost of Sarah Palin's midterm resignation as Alaska governor at a minimum of $40,000, not including a special legislative session partly linked to her departure.
The price tag for moving Palin -- the former GOP vice presidential candidate -- and her family from the governor's mansion in Juneau amounted to roughly $3,328.
The tally doesn't include the estimated $100,000 it cost for a one-day special session last month in which lawmakers approved Palin's pick to replace Parnell as lieutenant governor and overrode her veto of federal stimulus funds intended for energy efficiency projects.
