Sarah "Stonewall" Palin: Blasted by her hometown paper for TrooperGate

This is quite delicious! The in-your-face reformer and superhero, Sarah Palin, was smacked around by the Anchorage Daily News today for stonewalling the TrooperGate investigation. For those of you who are unfamiliar with TrooperGate, here's the gist: Palin is accused of improperly pressuring - and then firing - Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan because he wouldn't fire her ex-brother-in-law, state trooper Mike Wooten. In layman's terms, it's called 'abuse of power'.

Now here's the grenade Anchorage Daily News lobbed at her today:

Governor is stonewalling the Troopergate investigation
Gov. Sarah Palin is taking the wrong approach to Troopergate. She should be practicing the open and transparent, ethical and accountable government she promised when running for governor and boasts about now that she's on the national stage.
Instead, Gov. Palin has begun stonewalling the Legislature's attempt to get the bottom of allegations that she, her family or staff violated ethical or state personnel rules. As a result, the Troopergate allegations hang over Palin's future and cloud her candidacy for vice president.

Three cheers for the hometown paper for standing up to the political panderer! But in fairness, there is good reason for Sarah's stonewalling. She is trying to delay the intended release of the investigation. currently scheduled for ONE WEEK PRIOR TO ELECTION DAY.

Timing is everything isn't it.
