It comes as not surprise that Sarah Palin did nothing wrong - she was exonerated - in the firing of Walt Monegan according to a report just released by the Alaskan State Personnel Board. In fact, criticism of the governor was found to have been politically motivated (again, no surprise):
Sarah Palin did nothing wrong in firing Walt Monegan, the Alaskan State Personnel Board has concluded. Their independent investigator criticized the legislature's investigator for applying the wrong law. They also said that Todd Palin did nothing wrong in pressing for action against the governor's former brother-in-law.
A new report just released -- hours before the polls open on Election Day -- exonerates Gov. Sarah Palin in the Troopergate controversy.
The state Personnel Board-sanctioned investigation is the second into whether Palin violated state ethics law in firing her public safety commissioner, and it contradicts the earlier findings by a special counsel hired by the state Legislature.
Both investigations found that Palin was within her rights to fire Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan.
But the new report says the Legislature's investigator was wrong to conclude that Palin abused her power by allowing aides and her husband, Todd, to pressure Monegan and others to dismiss her ex-brother-in-law, Trooper Mike Wooten. Palin was accused of firing Monegan after Wooten stayed on the job.
Unfortunately, the networks are unlikely to issue BREAKING NEWS ALERTS that will undue the damage inflicted by Democrats who exploited the accusations to their own advantage.
