Wow. I would expect this article to be satire, because I didn’t think anyone would have the cajones to pull something like this. She’s hasn’t won the election, but she’s already doing shady shit.
Palin pre-empts state report, clears self in probe
ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Trying to head off a potentially embarrassing state ethics report on GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, campaign officials released their own report Thursday that clears her of any wrongdoing.
Sen. John McCain’s running mate is the subject of a legislative investigation into whether she abused her power as governor by firing her public safety commissioner. The commissioner, Walter Monegan, says he was dismissed in July for resisting pressure from Palin’s husband, Todd Palin, and numerous top aides to fire state trooper Mike Wooten, Palin’s former brother-in-law.
Huh. I didn’t know that’s how things worked. If I ever get brought into court as a defendant, I’ll be sure to issue my own report to the judge and jury: innocent. Obviously, this is just the kind of person we need in charge of the United States.
