Just In: Sarah Palin Will Not Talk With ‘Troopergate’ Investigator

September 15, 2008

Stonewalling is the worst thing any politician can do when the facts need to be addressed with the public.  How many times over decades have we discovered the cover-up is worse than the crime.  It seems some are needing to learn that lesson again, given the latest news tonight.

A campaign spokesman says Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin won’t speak with an investigator hired by lawmakers to look into the firing of her public safety commissioner.

McCain campaign spokesman Ed O’Callaghan told a news conference Monday that the governor, the Republican nominee for vice president, will not cooperate as long as the investigation “remains tainted.” He said he doesn’t know whether Palin’s husband would challenge a subpoena issued to compel his cooperation.

The campaign insists the investigation has been hijacked by Democrats. (Never mind the five person board has three Republicans.) It says it can prove Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan was fired because of insubordination on budget issues — not because he refused to fire a state trooper who had divorced Palin’s sister.

    Now I hear she’s stonewalling the Trooper-gate investigation.

    Doesn’t it kind of remind you of Karl Rove, or Scooter Libby, dodging and weaving around the truth!? Facing contempt of Congress charges, all the while proclaiming their innocence?

    Sheesh – I knew politicians were corrupt, but here we have a scandal even BEFORE they (hopefully not) get into office.

    The audacity! And Still, armies of morons see them as “mavericks.” Go figure.

    Fool me once and shame on . . .
    Heh, heh! Wait! How does that go now?

    “…insubordianation on budget issues…”

    That is now at least the third excuse I’ve heard from Palin, including failure to do something about alcohol abuse and bootlegging (a week after she praised him on the same topics, nonetheless). The other was that she didn’t fire him, but that he quit.

    Palin is a joke.
