The second TrooperGate investigation gets under way soon.
The Alaska Personnel Board is conducting the investigation, led by an independent counsel.
It will be the first deposition of the Alaska governor, but the second inquiry into the matter. The first investigation by the Alaska state legislature found that Palin abused her power in her efforts to get her former brother-in-law, a state trooper, fired.
Palin was not subpoenaed in the first probe, although her husband, Todd, gave an affidavit. Todd Palin is also expected to give a deposition Friday.
So there are the facts.
Here are some questions….
- If the first investigation ended with finding Palin guilty of violating ethics laws (and she didn’t even give a deposition in that case)…what do you think this investigation will find?
- Can Palin find any more reasons for swing voters to not cast a ballot for McCain?
- Has Palin forever changed the notion that a VP pick doesn’t matter?
