Second Commission Finds Palin Did No Wrong In ‘Troopergate’


If you’ve been watching or reading the news, you know that things don’t look good for John McCain. Of course, anything can happen today and polls aren’t to be believed, so who knows what’s going to happen.

One thing’s for sure – the Republican’s campaign got a bit of good news today after a second investigation exonerated running mate Sarah Palin of any wrong doing in the “Troopergate” scandal:

This time, Gov. Sarah Palin can claim vindication against allegations that she abused her power in office by firing her public safety commissioner.

Palin – running mate of Republican presidential candidate John McCain – violated no ethics laws, according to a report released by the state personnel board on the eve of Election Day. An earlier, separate investigation by the Legislature found that Palin had abused her office.

“There is no probable cause to believe that the governor, or any other state official, violated the Alaska Executive Ethics Act in connection with these matters,” the personnel board’s report said.

Palin’s attorney said the Governor’s “grateful” for the board’s findings. Obviously.
