Google Penalizes Affiliate Link-containing sites?

It's a question we've been asking ourselves at the company, as sites lacking affiliate codes were easier to promote, while those containing them always ranked substantially lower.

Seems there is something in Google spider that makes it harder to rank an affiliate-link filled site.

A client has an affiliate travel booking form. No other affiliate links, zero.
No TradeDoubler, Commission Junction, LinkShare, ShareASale or anything like that, just a search form. Can Google still see this?

Opinions on whether or not they penalize for having such content, we're very curious...

The main source of income for one of our clients is actually through affiliate booking forms. No banners, text links, whatsoever...
