TROOPERGATE REPORT: PALIN ABUSED POWER
Here's my guess: the McCain team will immediately claim that this is pure politics and appeal it to a date long after the election. They will then use it to get their already rowdy crowd even more riled up. "Look how they persecute us!" they will say.
Then the pitchforks and torches will come out as they storm the gates of Obama's house. Since he only lives three blocks down the road from me I'll make sure I take lots of pictures :)
So the crap has hit the fan . . . . Stay tuned.
From the Anchorage Daily News:

A legislative investigation has concluded that Gov. Sarah Palin abused her power in pushing for the firing of an Alaska state trooper who was once married to her sister.The report by investigator Steve Branchflower was made public late this afternoon by a 12-0 vote of the Legislative Council, which authorized the investigation.
Branchflower's report contains four findings. The first concludes that Palin violated the state's executive branch ethics act, which says that "each public officer holds office as a public trust, and any effort to benefit a personal or financial interest through official action is a violation of that trust."
Branchflower was investigating whether Palin abused her power by pushing for the firing of state trooper Mike Wooten, who was involved in a nasty divorce from Palin's sister. Palin and her husband, Todd, have accused Wooten of threatening Palin's father.
