TrooperGate Report Out Friday
The Alaska Legislature's TrooperGate report will be out Friday.
In lieu of testimony, seven employees, after Republicans lost their lawsuit to have the probe declared invalid, answered written questions under oath.
First Dude Todd Palin had until today to get his answers in.
A legislative panel has scheduled a meeting for 9 a.m. Friday to receive Branchflower's report on Monegan's firing and whether Palin or members of her administration abused their powers in pushing for the dismissal of a state trooper involved in a child-custody fight with the governor's sister.
Who didn't cooperate? Gov. Sarah Palin. [More...]
The big exception is the governor herself, who had said initially she would cooperate but has since resisted. Legislators decided against hitting the governor with a subpoena, saying they wanted to "de-escalate" tensions between her and the Legislature.
"We tried to schedule a statement from her but it never worked out," French said.
