Oddly enough, I'm supporting this answer too - because you are correct that both forms are in use. If you are asking an English teacher, they will give you the answer I gave. Depending on the style guide, you could go either way. Still, I think it is a but of an overreach to say that "common" and "correct" are always the same. English has some standardizations - but this one in particular is more honored in the breach than in practice.

@steveverrill As stated, it probably doesn't sound as natural, but it is correct. "I am taller than her" does sound good, but it is grammatically wrong. It is common, but it is wrong

Doh! I had actually meant to say preposition and not pronoun. Can I say, "dang autocorrect?" (I am on a phone)

Yes. In the first sentence, however, she is in the predicate. Rearranged to make that more clear

@Kris on this site, one should "cite" their sources with a citation rather than just "site" them which would locate them on a parcel on land. (Sorry common mistake that bugs me).
