Thanks, it’s fun to watch all this play out. Palin and Mc Cain claiming they are for change…:rolleyes:
I don’t think anything will happen to her anyways, to high up on the food chain now, but this should prove interesting to watch em squirm a bit.

This Wen. is the last Pres. debate I bet this may come up unless Obama stay’s on the true focus what he will do and not play pointing finger game?


#4

They’re all corrupted & abusing power :stuck_out_tongue:
$hit floats to the top …

Read up on the history of the trooper involved in this matter. This might improve her standing more than hurt her. He has admitted to TASERing a ten year old boy, being drunk while on duty, killing moose out of season etc. He also has a history of being violent in domestic situations. Had she not tried to remove him and he ends up harming someone either accidentally or on purpose these same people would be calling for Palin’s head for not acting. This is just more political maneuvering. Both sides are doing it every chance they get.

You should post the factual link making the claim of taser and if so why there wasn’t a out cry for using it against the kid it only can from Palin camp…no one else has said that happened?? Actually Palin camp said they would cooperate with the Repub investigation and now claims partisim politics?? What a joke. The other side isn’t doing it they are shooting themselves in the foot and trying to put blame on Demo who have nothing to do with their own problem they created. She isn’t the person that should make those decisions and her firing of the safety commissioner for not doing her bidding goes to show her true nature of not following the law of the land that she claims to abid by.

This is the interview he did with CNN and is his own words. The following interview will shine some light on the issue and might help some decide where they stand on the matter.

As far as I can tell Palin did nothing illegal. Even the guy she fired admits this. People in this type of position work at the pleasure of the Governor and can be replaced without cause. It seems like everyone got something out of this episode to hang their hat on. I doubt this would have amounted to anything had she not been selected VP by McCain. After that is became politically supercharged.

GUY’S
and UTR. If you are saying that this is partisan
politics against GOV. PALIN.,of course it is. That’s the
reason why I hate it when one opponents operatives
resort to this.
ZAP. P.S. here are two who always practice this

:bigsmile::bigsmile:

There are always two sides to every story and this trooper is no boy scout. IMO, he probably needs to find another line of work just based on what he admits to doing in that interview.

UTR
You are right.
ZAP.:bigsmile:

This goes to the same reasoning of why relatives are usually not allowed to work together, either in the same department or with one of them as a supervisor. It’s called a conflict of interest.

BTW, she was not her brother-in-law’s supervisor, therefore interjecting into the matter was not her responsibility. Says alot about her lack of character IMO.

As Governor, she is every state employee’s ULTIMATE supervisor. If her personal experience with this trooper showed him to be unstable and a potential danger to the public it would be irresponsible of her to not get him removed. IMO, this looks to say something good about her character. Maybe the guy she fired wasn’t living up to his responsibility to protect the public from a trooper with mental issues. Watch the video link I gave and see with your own eyes and from the trooper’s own mouth what he has done. The guy shouldn’t be in a position of authority with police powers.

It looks like Governor Sara Palin has been cleared of any ethics violations in the Troopergate affair. Here’s a link: http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=D947PVBG0&show_article=1
