Well, we had to have expect this at some point. Governor Palin is now refusing to cooperate further with an investigation by the Alaskan legislature, into her abuse of power in firing her public safety director (aka "Troopergate"). Palin says that the investigating committee (3 Republicans and 2 Democrats) is being manipulated by the Obama campaign. There is also in independent counsel that has been appointed. The investigating committee voted 3-2 to subpoena Todd Palin, the Governor's husband. The deciding vote on the committee was cast by a Republican representative from Wasilla, Palin's home town. There is no word yet on whether the committee will subpoena the Governor. It sounds like if they do, Palin will resist testifying.

Palin's story about why she fired this guy is now gelling. Now she says that she fired Monegan because he was lobbying Congress in Washington for more money (earmarks) without Palin's authorization. Yeah right. Look at Palin's history and Alaska's budget. She probably encouraged every department head lobby Congress for free hand outs from the tax payers down in the "Lower 48." She did so herself when she was Mayor of a town of about 5,000 people!
This is TYPICAL of Bush era politics. Business as usual. More of the same. Oh, and, McCain still doesn't understand the economy.
