Walter Monegan , the state's Public Safety Commissioner, was terminated by Palin in July. He claimed Sarah and Todd Palin pressured him to fire Mike Wooten, a state trooper involved in a divorce and custody dispute with the governor's sister. Alaska's legislative investigator, Stephen Branchflower, found Palin in violation of a state ethics law that prohibits public officials from using their office for personal gain.
Palin, who initially said she had nothing to hide, refused to cooperate with the investigation once she was tapped by John McCain to be his VP. Since then, McCain's legal staff has desperately tried to squash subpoenas in the case and Palin herself refused to testify.
It looks like Palin's chickens are coming home to roost. Call it karma. After a week of battering her opponent and portraying him as a terrorist, un-American, and a dangerous unknown, we learn that Palin broke an ethics law - ultimately an impeachable offense. Oh Sarah, do we really know you? Who is Sarah Palin? Someone who doesn't love her own state enough to not break its laws while she's the Governor.
