Alaska–After promising total cooperation in an abuse of power investigation conducted by Alaska’s state legislature, Republican vice presidential candidate Gov. Sarah Palin has not done and about face as has her husband Todd Palin.

Link to rest.

It looks like Troopergate will be delayed til after the election but here is the good thing that benefits democrats. Sarah Palin will look like she has done something wrong by "covering" this up and trying to delay it. It shows guilt and a cloud of doubt will linger in the minds of voters. Its that same cloud of doubt that caused her poll numbers in Alaska to drop from nearly 90% to 67%. If she has done nothing wrong, she should have proceeded forward with this so voters know for certain she is innocent. It shouldnt matter if the board is partisan or not, if she has done nothing, there is nothing the board can find on her. The fact that she has decided not to coroporate with the investigation shows she has done something illegal and voters will be thinking about this. McCain just made a big mistake. First he picks someone who doesnt know what she is doing at all, then that same person is under investigation. What was he thinking?

It's amazing. They are using some old Alaska law saying you can't investigate someone running for office. Well the investigation started before she was running for VP. This sounds like a typical Bush tactic. She would do well in Washington.

dont worry, McCain and Palin think they are putting this behind them but it only makes matters worse. Now most people will believe she is guilty because she is trying to delay this till after the election. That means she has a credibilty problem. This is going to be the killer for John McCain and it will hand over the presidency to Obama for sure.

What's so frightening is that McCain's people advised Palin not to cooperate with the investigation, which means if they ever reach the white house these same people will be in the white house advising McCain and Palin all the time to avoid subpoenas or not talk to that person and there we will go again, just like Bush, with an administration that doesn't believe in the tenets of our constitution, the separation of powers. I cannot believe the way these people get away with ignoring the law or the transparency in government that we all deserve out of our leaders (that spend OUR tax dollars and whom WE elect). It just shows how much like Bush this administration would be, and that's not a good thing for Americans and our separation of powers system.

I can't wait to see the pardons start to fly. Bush is going to have to pardon most of the people who worked for him. I know they are all shaking in their boots. If Obama wins there may be trials. If McCain wins they can sweep it under a rug somewhere.

Sounds just like the Clinton Whitehouse... only difference is that people actually mysteriously died before they could testify from their home state.
It was a big issue during the 1992 presidential election.

Remember,... Bill Clinton was such a good president!
So good for the country!

You do remember the Whitewater scandal, don't you ???
