If she has nothing to hide...why won't she cooperate despite the accusation that it is partisian? This really smacks of BushCo.'s tatics of refusing to testify in congressional hearings. And you McPain supporters want 8 more years of this crap?

Palin Won't Cooperate in Probe of Trooper Firing, Campaign Says Tony Hopfinger
Tue Sep 16, 12:21 AM ET



Sept. 16 (Bloomberg) -- Alaska Governor Sarah Palin won't cooperate in an investigation into the firing of the state's top law enforcement official because the probe has become ``tainted'' by partisan politics, a McCain-Palin campaign spokeswoman told reporters in Anchorage.

Alaska lawmakers, led by State Senator Hollis French, a Democrat, are investigating Palin over the July 11 firing of Alaska Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan, who said he resisted pressure to dismiss state trooper Mike Wooten. The trooper was involved in a divorce and custody battle with the governor's sister.

Instead of the legislature investigating the matter, the allegations should be reviewed by the state personnel board, which handles state employee disputes, campaign spokeswoman Meg Stapleton said yesterday. The board is already reviewing the firing of Monegan, spurred by ethics complaints filed by Palin and the trooper's union representing Wooten.

The state legislature's investigation was thrust into the national spotlight after Republican presidential nominee John McCain picked Palin as his vice presidential running mate. The Alaska lawmakers are trying to conclude the probe by Oct. 10, less than a month before the Nov. 4 presidential election between McCain and Democratic nominee Barack Obama.

Stapleton said e-mails compiled by the Palin administration show that Monegan was dismissed for not complying with budgetary requests by the governor.

``The reassignment of Walt Monegan had absolutely nothing to do with Trooper Wooten and everything to do with Commissioner Monegan's adamant refusal to join with Governor Palin on fiscal responsibility reform,'' Stapleton said.

In a Sept. 12 interview, Monegan said that as a political appointee, the governor had the right to fire him without cause. Still, he said his dismissal appeared to have more to do with Palin's concerns with Wooten, who she alleged was dangerous and should not be employed as a trooper.

``Wooten was the biggest factor, if not the only factor, in that,'' Monegan said of his termination.

From what I've heard about Wooten he SHOULD have been fired, as should anyone who refused to do so at the request of the GOVERNOR. As an "appointee", she has the right to fire him for any reason, correct? So why the lawsuit? Maybe she doesn't want her sister dragged through the mud after having to tolerate this dirtbag in the first place.

Look, I don't have any high hopes of McCain/Palin turning any thing around, but if we're going to dig up dirt, let's make it something that can stick ay?

I, as one who believes that socialism, marxism and communism has no place in the country, believe that liberal progressives should leave before their true agenda is revealed to the masses. Then it may too late for them...

Bye Bye :whip:
Ahhh, the old "get out of my country if you don't like it" arguement.

I tend to believe that people don't realize they are already in a dictatorship until it is too late and all the rules of their constitution have been wiped clean...which ironically usually starts with the politicians believing they are above the law. Sound familiar? ;)

It isn't an argument. It's a statement of fact. When the SHTF, the option to leave for those that have displayed their anti-American/anti-God opinions, will not exist. It will, in other words, be too late...

Our country will return to its former self. Get over it...

Am I the only one who heard why she wanted the brother-in-law fired from the Alaska State Police?

Apparently, he thought it was somehow OK to use a taser on his 10 year old step-son (Sarah Palin's nephew). IF that is true, not only should he have lost his job but he's lucky he isn't sitting in prison.

dan, you're correct. This guy also did some other unethical things; can't remember now, but... Sarah Palin is doing the right thing, and did the right thing.
I've learned that anyone with a V avatar is either a troll, a conspiracy theorist, or an ignorant liberal.

I agree about Wooten, but she didn't fire him, she fired the guy that wouldn't fire him. So, she got her panties in a wad and threw a hissy fit and fired the wrong guy and now her political future is being jeopardized by it.

Somehow I find it difficult to see your justification that YOU are more American than me just because I don't support YOUR candidate. That to me sounds like you need to understand that this country is based on FREEDOM, which includes the freedom to choose someone other than a Republican. How is that anti-american? Please....explain..can't wait to hear this.

Sounds to me like you want a one party system, no questions asks, no voting, no questioning authority and no right to disagree....much like the communist party and how it rules China....damn independence of thought etc. :taped: Have you considered that perhaps you are in the wrong country if that is the way you think?

Don't be a sheeple man, think for yourself...dare to go against the grain once in a while, try questioning authority before you jump off the bridge because everyone else did....it is truly a test of one's inner self. :upsidedown:

She probably doesn't want to get crucified by the Obama people if she does! The Dems would use ANYTHING that was said in these hearings to discredit her. Smary lady, nothing that can't wait until AFTER the election is over...
