After the non scandals that have dogged of Palin including her 17 year old unmarried pregnant daughter, choosing to give birth to a Down Syndrome child, and her continuing to work as Alaska's governor as well as accepting the vice presidential nomination, and other horrors, the accusers will manufacture another Palin non scandal--she abused her power to fire Alaska's Public Safety Commissioner because he wouldn't fire her nasty brother in law.
To prepare the voters, Investor's Business Daily had an editorial yesterday with all the facts about this next non scandal. And surprise--no scandal regarding Governor Palin.
But there is a scandal of abuse of power--the scandal of how the state troopers' union abused their power to force the retention of a trooper, Mike Wooten, who had a long, proven history of serious charges against him.
The state police investigated these charges and substantiated all of them. Col. Julia Grimes, then head of the Alaska State Troopers, suspended Wooten for 10 days and wrote, "The record clearly indicates a serious and concentrated pattern of unacceptable and at times, illegal activity occurring over a lengthy period, which establishes a course of conduct totally at odds with the ethics of our profession." She warned him he would be fired if he didn't shape up. The troopers' union got the suspension cut to five days.
Now ask yourself this: If you were Sarah Palin and had such a revealing look at Mike Wooten, would you have wanted him on the force? Palin was acting as any concerned citizen should after a close encounter with an unfit cop. If there's abuse of power in this story, it lies on the side of bureaucrats and unions protecting officers whose behavior makes them a danger to the public.
And for the next non Sarah Palin scandal--she wants to drill, drill, drill and return the profits directly to the taxpayers instead of expanding government.
Don't say you weren't warned.
