Turns out Palin is not only a terrible mayor who left her town in debt after she left office, but she's also a poor buisnesswoman.... http://voices.washingtonpost.com/the-trail/2008/09/02/palin_scrubbing_car_wash.html State records show the business ran into trouble with Alaska's division of corporations business and professional licensing after Palin became governor of the state in 2006. A Feb. 11, 2007 letter to the governor's business partner advises that the car wash had "not filed its biennial report and/or paid its biennial fees," which were more than a year overdue. The warning letter was written on state letterhead, which carried Palin's name at the top, next to the state seal. On April 3, 2007, the state went further and issued a "certificate of involuntary dissolution" because of the car wash's failure to file its report and pay state licensing fees. Palin's gubernatorial disclosure filings also reveal her involvement in another failed startup -- a marketing business which was to go by the name Rouge Cou, which evidently is a literal French translation of "red neck." On the 2005 form, Palin describes the firm as one for which she secured a license but did not conduct any business.
