Report Clears Palin In Troopergate Probe

A report has cleared Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin of ethics violations in the firing of her public safety commissioner.

Released Monday, the report says there is no probable cause to
believe Palin or any other state official violated the Alaska Executive Ethics Act in connection with the firing.

The report was prepared by Timothy Petumenos, an independent counsel for the Alaska Personnel Board.

A separate legislative investigation recently concluded that Palin, the Republican vice presidential nominee, abused her office by allowing her husband and staffers to pressure the public safety commissioner to fire a state trooper who went through a nasty divorce from Palin's sister.

Palin says the firing had nothing to do with the trooper.

    I don't know why witn asks for comments, when they won't print the sensible, truthful and insightful posts. Please tell me what rule I broke in my previous post on this story.

    Of course she's been cleared. She never did anything wrong. The whole case was an overblown bunch of crap perpetrated upon a fine lady designed to make her look bad to the voting public. It smacks of the same tactics used against Joe the Plumber. If the main stream media had used as much energy and resources to dig into Obama's past and associations as it used in trying to besmirch the reputations of Sarah and Joe, everyone would know what a radical, socialistic, lying fake Obama is, and he wouldn't have a chance of becoming our President. The media has done everything they could to get Obama elected, including covering up all his faults.
