It appears that Sarah Palin is a quick study. She is taking a page out of Dick Cheney’s book and refusing to meet with Alaska investigators looking into the dismissal of her public safety commissioner not long after pledging to fully co-operate with the investigation.
The presidential campaign of Sen. John McCain is trying to put to rest the ethical controversy that’s come to be known as “Troopergate,” releasing e-mails supporting Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s contention that she dismissed her public safety commissioner over budget disagreements, not because he wouldn’t fire her ex-brother-in-law.
And, the campaign says, Palin is unlikely to speak with an investigator hired by the state legislature to look into the matter.
I guess if you are learning how to stonewall ethics investigators, you couldn’t have better teachers than those in the current administration and it looks like McCain/Palin are making good use of their massive experience on the subject.
