....A just-closed deal on a secluded luxury home in far north Scottsdale might fit the bill, and talk has begun that this may be the one. It's an 8,000-square-foot, dark-brown stucco home with a guard gate that can keep unwanted visitors away. It has six bedrooms, five bathrooms, a six-car garage, a swimming pool and spa, and a full basement with a home theater, billiards room and wine cellar.
Safari Investments LLC paid $1.695 million cash for the home in a deal that appears designed to cloak the identity of a high-profile buyer.
Safari Investments is a Delaware limited liability firm formed May 12, the day before the deal for the Scottsdale home closed. No officers are listed on the Delaware filing, and that state doesn't require the names of individual associated with limited liability companies to be disclosed. High-profile people often buy homes through LLCs to maintain their privacy.
Alan Kierman, an attorney with the Phoenix law firm of Mack Drucker & Watson, is listed on property records as the contact for Safari Investments. Asked point blank by The Arizona Republic if Palin and her husband Todd Palin bought the north Scottsdale house through the company, Kierman said he had no comment....
If some of you are thinking to yourself that you have heard the name "Safari" used in connection to the Palins before, give yourself a gold star, for in fact that is the name of the lake where they have their cabins. You remember don't you, the cabins that they failed to pay property taxes on for many years?
So a million plus dollar home, situated very near daughter Bristol, with money paid from a brand new LLC that happens to share a name with the lake where the Palin have property in Alaska, and a "no comment" from the lawyer attached the the deal..
Seriously, does anybody really have any doubt?
If Palin is indeed running in 2012, THIS will undoubtedly be her new campaign headquarters, which means donors to SarahPAC better start saving their pennies, because the Grizzled Mama LOVES to redecorate her new office spaces!
By the way Scottsdale just so happens to be one of the places in Arizona that have a restaurant with a Michelin starred chef, which means there are some people here who owe WendyWaitress a huge apology.
