Lawyer: Todd Palin Won't Testify In 'Troopergate'

Todd Palin is refusing to testify in an abuse-of-power investigation into his wife, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

Palin had been subpoenaed to appear Friday before Alaska
lawmakers to testify as to whether Public Safety Commissioner Walt
Monegan was fired because he refused to dismiss a state trooper who
had gone through a bitter divorce with Sarah Palin's sister.

McCain-Palin spokesman Ed O'Callaghan said Thursday that Todd
Palin no longer believes the Legislature's investigation is
legitimate.

A key lawmaker says the stonewalling of witnesses is likely to
stall the probe until after Election Day.

Sarah Palin at first welcomed the investigation but opposes it
now as the Republican candidate for vice president.
