ANCHORAGE, Alaska — As part of her reformer persona, when Gov. Sarah Palin took office in 2006, she dumped a state-owned jet that her predecessor used to fly around the state, first trying to sell it on Ebay, but ultimately selling it at a loss to an individual buyer.

It looked as if she’d be flying commercial for all her travel needs. A woman of the people.

But it turns out that she just used a different jet for much of her travel.  Palin flew on the Dept. of Public Safety’s jet.  The governor’s flights accounted for 20 percent of the jet’s usage, according to a chart obtained by MSNBC’s Deepbackground.

Palin’s husband, Todd Palin, complained in his Troopergate statement that the jet was not being made available enough for the governor. The AP reported yesterday that the old plane was often out for repairs.

Maybe she should have just hung onto that first jet after all.
