..legally she did nothing wrong.
Well that is what the report says into the ethical misuse of power by Sarah Palin. Yet it is, shall we say, a comedy of errors.
It is turning out that Todd Palin – you know, he’s mer husband – is much more involved than first thought. Many commentators thought it was a matter that she was just abusing her power to get a fat guy fired – her sisters husband. But it turns out that another party was also involved – and another and another.
You couldn’t write this unless you were writing about some outback town well away from the glaring eyes of civilisation
Boo-yah! Got that moose?
It is even more incredible now that as the report comes out – that the people of Alaska actually voted for this moron.
Top state police officials urged Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s aides and husband to stop pushing for the firing of her ex-brother-in-law, with one warning it could cause “an extreme amount of discomfort and embarrassment.”
That warning from John Glass, Alaska’s deputy commissioner of public safety, is included in a state investigator’s report that found Palin unlawfully abused her authority to press for the dismissal of Mike Wooten, her sister’s ex-husband, from the state trooper force.
Glass said he warned Palin’s husband, Todd, that disciplinary action already had been taken against the trooper and that “we could not fire him,” according to the report, which was released Friday.
“And I also warned him that it was going to cause some extreme amount of discomfort and embarrassment for the governor if they pursued this and it should never have become public. That it would just be not good for the governor if it continued, and that they needed to cease and desist,” Glass told former Anchorage prosecutor Stephen Branchflower, the report’s author.
Some common-sense should have been used – but it is patently obvious that there isn’t any in this case.
Watching an earlier broadcast it stated that the illegal moose killing by Wooten could have cause even more embarrassment for Palin and da clan – the people who were with Wooten when he shot and killed the moose were her sister and her father.
If charges had been brought against Wooten, then her sister and father would have to be charged, too.
Look out for more redneck stupidity from the wastes of Alaska.
Moose Burger, anyone?
