McCain Campaign Calls TrooperGate Partisan. They're Wrong.
Not only are they wrong…they’re REALLY wrong.
First, here’s McCain’s response to the report…
Todayâ€™s report shows that the Governor acted within her proper and lawful authority in the reassignment of Walt Monegan. The report also illustrates what weâ€™ve known all along: this was a partisan led inquiry run by Obama supporters and the Palins were completely justified in their concern regarding Trooper Wooten given his violent and rogue behavior. Lacking evidence to support the original Monegan allegation, the Legislative Council seriously overreached, making a tortured argument to find fault without basis in law or fact. The Governor is looking forward to cooperating with the Personnel Board and continuing her conversation with the American people regarding the important issues facing the country.
So McCain thinks this inquiry was run by Obama supporters?
Well…let’s look at the record…
The legislative committee that approved this report is composed of 8 Republicans and 4 Democrats. That’s not just a bi-partisan inquiry, that’s HIGHLY skewed towards a conservative point of view.
And again, this is a violation of the public trust. So given that this is the same thing that Palin has been charging Obama with recently with her “Who is the REAL Barack Obama?” charge, isn’t her credibility shot when it comes to accusing anybody of not being truthful?
