Taking an action right out of the Bush/Cheney/Rove/Gonzales playbook, the McCain Team is working overtime to suppress and derail the Alaska, Palin, Troopergate investigation.
It sounds like the trooper was indeed guilty of misconduct, but it is out of line for a Governor to exert political influence with a clear conflict of influence.
There is now Republican pressure to stop or slow down this investigation even though it had bi partisan support. No October surprises is more important than justice.

So much for open, transparent and bi partisan investigations from the McCain/Palin Team.

Wonder if they are working harder than the Dems and Obama are working to suppress any investigation into Obamas relationship with David Ayers who happens to be a known terrorist? :biggrin:

The trooper in question was caught drinking on the job,and tasered his 11 year old son, off duty with a state issued taser. Then, the gestapo labor union protects this POS's job, and turns this whole thing around on Palin by trying to deflect the facts. My only criticism is that he, or the supervisor who tried to protect his job by hiding the evidence should have been fired much earlier.

Lord forbid if the Alaskan governor expects professionalism and ethics out of the state's employees.

Leave it to you to twist the facts and ignore the real reason the scumbag was to be fired. Lord forbid that you or any member of your family ever gets tasered by a rogue cop. Then again, you don't have children, so we can have solice that your gene pool ends with you. :yes:

I have not heard anyone contest the misconduct charges against the trooper in question, not. The investigation into Sarah Palin concerns whether or not she exerted political influence.
If Sarah Palin is so confident she did not violate any political standards, why obstruct justice and interfere with the ongoing, bi- partisan supported investigation?

Any off duty officer who would taser his 11 year son should be fired on the spot. It is a shame that Palin (if this is true) would have to get involved, because someone in the chain of command wouldn't do their job. Just goes to show that union politics and the good ol' boy system is more important to the highway patrol than ethics and the rule of law.

He should have been fired much earlier, period!!! The attempt to implicate Palin as doing it for family revenge is absolutely ridiculous and nothing but a witch hunt for political expediency. Plain & simple, the Dems are scared shatless of her, and will resort to the lowest, dirtiest and most shameful of tactics to try and discredit her.

Palin has over an 80% approval ratingin Alaska. It's obvious you can't handle that.

Since the American public only has a short time to check out Sarah Palin's background, why are the Republicans trying to obstruct a bi-partisan investigation of her?
That is not change from the Bush/Cheney/Rove/ Gonzales playbook now is it?

It's only a scandal in your mind...

http://ac360.blogs.cnn.com/2008/09/05/exclusive-the-trooper-behind-trooper-gate/

Palin's ex-in-law speaks out. Here is a preview of tonight's AC360° report:
Drew Griffin
CNN Investigative Reporter

The Alaska state trooper at the center of a probe into whether Gov. Sarah Palin abused her power says he has “made mistakes, and I’ve learned from those mistakes.” But in an exclusive interview with us, Mike Wooten, Palin’s former brother-in-law, also denies some of the biggest allegations against him.

Wooten says he has been offered $30,000 to tell his story to a tabloid. The Obama campaign has reached out to the head of his union. And he no longer answers any phone number he doesn’t recognize for fear it is another pesky reporter who wants his story.

The story is how he married into, then divorced out of, Alaska’s first family. The trooper finds his life at the center of the one and only potential scandal I can find concerning Gov. Palin, John McCain’s choice for running mate.

The scandalous allegation is the governor used her power to try and get her sister’s ex fired. When that didn’t work, it’s alleged Gov. Palin fired the public safety commissioner.

In our interview, Wooten rattled off a disturbing number of “mistakes” he’s made in his career. He admits tasering his stepson, illegally killing a moose and admits to multiple reprimands in his file. A state trooper investigation even found credible evidence he was drinking in his patrol car.

But please tell me if you think his tale — dubbed Troopergate by Gov. Palin’s political enemies — is really the scandal that will bring down the newest star on the political scene.

By the way, I hear Gov. Palin is in Florida. Here’s a shot of the CNN crew using a fly-away satellite out of a U-Haul on a rainy, cold Friday in Anchorage.


As I said... Wooten should have been fired without having anyone to step in to take care of what should have been done before hand. It looks to me like that higher ups in the state government had to step in to do what Wooten's supervisor refused to do.

Given the evidence, it's a non-starter on more than one level.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'd like folks at the EPA, Corps of Engineers, etc. who take wetland protection a little more seriously than the bunch we have now.


Not to hard to figure that out -

Well if we don't "drill, drill, drill" we'll be "walking, walking, walking" sooner rather than later. And those folks whose economies and livelihoods are built on tourism had better pray, or whatever, that we start drilling with a quickness.
