Get out of town....

McCain-Palin campaign accused of co-opting department of law



Todd Palin refuses to testify

ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Todd Palin says he will not testify about abuse of power allegations against his wife, Gov. Sarah Palin.

Todd Palin no longer believes the Legislature's investigation is legitimate, said McCain-Palin spokesman Ed O'Callaghan.

Independent investigator Stephen Branchflower subpoenaed Palin, who was to appear Friday before Alaska lawmakers on the firing of Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan.

The Palins and the governor's staff are under investigation because some suspect Monegan was fired for refusing to dismiss an Alaska State Trooper who had gone through a bitter divorce with Sarah Palin's sister.

A key lawmaker also said Thursday that the stonewalling of witnesses is likely to stall the probe until after Election Day.

Sarah Palin welcomed the investigation at first, but she has opposed it since becoming the Republican candidate for vice president.

This is a breaking story.

This is an outrage. Sarah Palin is asking me to believe she has the integrity and transparency to be the President. But she will not have her husband honor a bipartisan subpoena from the legislature. Frankly, the legislature should fine him and throw him in jail. Throw the A.G. in there while you are at it, for instructing state employees to break the law. Unbelievable. No honor. No integrity. No Palin.
