Palin, is facing yet another ethics investigation
The GOP candidate for vice president, Gov. Sarah Palin, is facing
yet another ethics investigation back in her home state of Alaska. An
ethics complaint obtained by NBC News was filed Wednesday by the
police officers union in Alaska, requesting a probe into possible
wrongdoing by the governor or her office. It was brought on behalf of
state trooper Mike Wooten, an ex-brother-in-law of Palin who is at the
center of the "Troopergate" scandal.
The complaint alleges that the governor or her staff may have have
improperly disclosed information from Wooten's personnel records. The
complaint alleges "criminal penalties may apply."
John Cyr, director of the union that filed the complaint, told NBC
News, "It seems obvious to us somebody has improperly accessed
[Wooten's] personnel file." Governor Palin is that somebody.
