(Excuse me - sidebar comment - we should note that Obama never initiated an investigation on himself with his relations to buddy Bill, the terrorist)
"I absolutely disagree that I violated state ethics law. In repeatedly complaining about trooper Mike Wooten, Todd and I were not pursuing a personal vendetta. We were trying to protect the integrity of the Alaska State Troopers from having an arrogant, almost-out-of-control law-breaker in their ranks. Because the action we were seeking was in the public interest, not purely our personal interest, there is no ethics law violation."
"Commissioner Monegan committed a major blunder on May 15, 2008.
On that day, He submitted to her office a poster-boy photograph of a disreputable Alaskan Trooper for the Governor to sign and present at the Police Memorial Day honoring the Troopers. The Governro declined to sign the poster and refused to attend the Police Memorial Day.
Here is the excerpt from page 39 of the report.
He did what?
You have to be kidding me, right?
Let me read that one again, slowly!
The Commissioner dropped off a color poster photograph of Trooper Wooten. A trooper he claims that he was being pressured to fire. A trooper he claims he was pressured to fire since the first day of his job. A job he felt he was going to lose if he did not fire this trooper.
A trooper who the Commissioner knew the Governor Palin and her husband believed to be an extremely poor representation of an Alaska State Trooper.
A trooper who the Commissioner knew had been repeatedly disciplined for a multitude of serious infractions. Infractions such as:
“the taking of a moose illegally, tasering an 11-year-old stepson of Wooten’s, drinking while driving in the patrol car, having a beer while he was driving his patrol car.” Monegan to Branchflower page 18
And this trooper, is the one he selects to honor on the Police Memorial Day?
I don’t believe the Commissioner was that stupid.
I don’t believe that the Commissioner was that incompetent.
I can only conclude that the Commissioner was deliberately insubordinate. That he was deliberately seeking to antagonize and worry the Governor of the State of Alaska."
This is the troopergate?Where is the investigation on Obinladen and bombing Bill?
And the great one's funding of ACORN - should that not also be looked at?
or doesn't a Presidential candidate get vetted for the people?
Am I the only one who sees the hypocrisy?
Our tax dollars at work
