AK’s First Dude Ruled in Contempt

from CNN:

Todd Palin and nine aides were found in contempt Friday by the Alaska Senate for failing to appear to testify in the Legislature’s “troopergate” investigation of his wife, Gov. Sarah Palin, a spokeswoman for the Alaska Democratic Party said.

Todd Palin, shown campaigning in Virginia in 2008, didn’t testify, but submitted a statement in the case.

But a Senate resolution said no one should be punished, because the 10 did submit statements to the investigator, the Anchorage Daily News reported.

The governor’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The investigation concerns the governor’s firing of the state’s public safety commissioner, Walter Monegan.

A bipartisan commission in the state Legislature investigated allegations that Palin fired Monegan after he refused to sack her ex-brother-in-law, State Trooper Mike Wooten. The governor, first elected in 2006, has denied wrongdoing.
