Another blow to the already weakened McCain/Palin camp, this might be the last nail in the coffin. I hope they don’t lock up Tina Fey by mistake. :mrgreen:

The Alaska Supreme Court today rejected an attempt by a group of six Republican legislators to shut down the Legislature’s investigation of Gov. Sarah Palin.

The ruling means that Steve Branchflower, the investigator hired by the Legislative Council, will release his report as scheduled on Friday.

Troopergate Report: Palin Abused Power](
Unanimous but Contentious Vote to Release the Report to the Public

Oct. 10, 2008

Sarah Palin abused her power when she fired her Public Safety Commissioner this July, a state investigation has concluded.

The Alaska legislature voted to release the several hundred page report on the “Troopergate” scandal, a state kerfuffle which has come to haunt Gov. Sarah Palin’s vice presidential bid. The scandal centered around her firing of Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan. Monegan and others believed Palin fired him because he refused to take action against Mike Wooten, a state trooper under him who had been involved in a messy divorce with Palin’s sister, Molly.

The investigator, Stephen Branchflower, found that Monegan’s refusal to fire Wooten “was not the sole reason” but was “likely a contributing factor” to his firing.

Branchflower also said Palin’s attorney general failed to provide him with emails of Palin’s that he had requested as part of the probe.

that’s going to leave a mark

hell hath no fury …




A Governor has a duty to fire any trooper who tazers his 10 year old step child.

Not too many going to go against Sarah on that one.

Political payback?

Stephen Branchflower info and article

“Steve Branchflower is a highly respected prosecutor and public servant,” said Sen. Hollis French, D-Anchorage. “If there were wrongs committed, he will find them. If there were not, he has the professional experience and good judgment to say so.”

French will supervise Branchflower.** French, also a former prosecutor and colleague of Branchflower**, has told the council that the investigator will go to work gathering evidence and could come back to lawmakers if “some people just won’t talk.” The House and Senate Judiciary Committees could then issue subpoenas to compel testimony.

Interestingly, the Alaska D.A.s office would also be bound to prosecute such a crime, I wonder why they didn’t?

Maybe lack of evidence??



It looks like not only won’t there be another bush in the White House, it is looking more & more that Sarah Palin won’t be able to keep her job as the Alaskan Governor either.

Alaskans Protest Sarah Palin](

Palin has the #4 approval rating among all 50 state governors. I don’t see troopergate as a negative. Its another example of what’s wrong with America. I want to hear more information about the nice “Trooper” who threatens his inlaws and tasers 10 year old children.

There is no proof, just more lies and scum laden shenanigans made up by Palin to exact her revenge. The question you have to ask yourself is if the guy is guilty why is he still a Trooper? Palin is nothing more than a white-trash low-life who bullied her way into the governors office.

Who cares???

Only Joey.:roll:

Why are they so intent on destroying Palin?
