Sometimes it’s tough, being the bearer of bad news.
I feel the need to break it to Sarah Palin- gently, of course- that she is dead-ass wrong in her understanding of what the final “Troopergate” Investigative Report actually says.
… Similar to the web a very dangerous, very poisonous, albeit relatively small black widow spider- on steroids- would spin… but the fact remains…
The panel found that Pit Bull Palin was completely, and yes, ethically out of line when she fired Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan… she fired his ass, at least in part, because he refused to fire Palin’s brother-in-law… who was embroiled in a nasty divorce with her sister.
The investigation determined that Palin knew daggone good and well what she was doing… and that she was wrong in doing it:
I find that Governor Sarah Palin Abused her power by violating Alaska Statute 39.52.110(a) of the Ethics Act…
And then further states:
... Compliance with the code of ethics is not optional… Governor Palin knowingly permitted a situation to continue where impermissable pressure was placed on several subordinates in order to advance a personal agenda.
Look, I’m no ethics investigator, but…
Sounds to me like the lady violated some shit… more specifically, she violated some ethical shit… the very same kinda shit she says she was cleared of violating…
… But really wasn’t.
Spin, baby, spin.
