Demand Release Of Troopergate Report

Just in from the BBC...seems that those who have been investigating Sarah Palin's Troopergate scandal are mulling over MAYBE releasing the findings of the report. We need to DEMAND full transparancy. Contact Alaskan elected officials and demand access to this report. The American people deserve the truth, good, bad or ugly. Sarah Palin and her actions are now no longer JUST AN ALASKAN ISSUE.

Alaska legislators are to decide whether to make public an investigation into allegations Sarah Palin abused her power as governor of Alaska.

Mrs Palin stands accused of firing a safety official for refusing to sack a state trooper who had been involved in an acrimonious divorce from her sister.

Mrs Palin, who is John McCain's running mate, denies any improper behaviour.

But the row - now widely referred to as "Troopergate" - has cast a pall over the Republican presidential campaign.

The probe into the affair began before Mr McCain selected Mrs Palin last month.

Critics say Mrs Palin was using her power as governor to settle a personal feud.

But several Republican politicians had attempted to have the probe stopped on the grounds that it was politically motivated.

However, the Supreme Court in Alaska on Thursday dismissed a legal attempt to stop the investigation.

Right after we demand that Barack Obama releases his birth certificate and college records. I truly could care less about troopergate, except for someone to explain why this man is still on the payroll.
