The issue with all this is that a poor loser political enemy of Sarah Palin (Halcro) who she beat in the Governor’s election put 2+2 together and came up with 5 after Palin demoted her Public Safety Commissioner (Monegan), one of her Cabinet appointees who serves at will and can be replaced at any time by the Governor for any reason. (Monegan quit his job by the way instead of taking a demotion) Well, Halcro surmised on his blog that if Palin replaced Commissioner Monegan, it must have been because of him not firing her ex brother-in-law. Palin says it was because her cabinet member Monegan was uncooperative in hiring more troopers and because of a failure to curb alcohol abuse in the native villages.
Even Commissioner Monegan agrees that Palin NEVER asked him to fire the trooper. But, Obama’s point man in Alaska Democrat State Senator Hollis French pushed for an investigation which HE now heads. Using his power in State Government, French hired a former prosecutor colleage of his (and a 30 year friend) to investigate the Governor. Now get this….This investigator French hired (Branchflower) is also a 30 year personal friend of Public Safety Commissioner Monegan and investigator Branchflower’s wife used to work Monegan! That’s fair?
The whole impetus of this comes down to whether they can read her mind on why she demoted the Commissioner.
This whole thing is ridiculous, but I guess politics isn’t about truth and justice.
So although the committee was bi-partisan – 10 republicans and 4 democrats, it would appear they were all out for the same thing and were all in bed with one another.
I still need to see how she violated the public trust; the Alaskans – except for the politicians she has pissed off – are very happy with her.
