John Fund was on Fox and Friends this morning talking about a trip he took to Alaska to do some fishing and some research. From what he learned about the ex-brother-in-law state trooper that Sarah Palin wanted fired, he said that any media outlets who try to make this guy took sympathetic are making a big mistake because this ex-brother in law is a really bad character.
Well, CNN is doing just what Fund said they shouldn’t and I hope it comes back to bite CNN in the butt. CNN is running video of this guy making him look really sympathetic even though he has been investigated by the Alaska State Troopers and found to have broken the law several times. AJ Strata at The Strata-Sphere links to a piece which has this quote from the head of Alaska State Troopers:
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,” Col. Julia Grimes, then head of Alaska State Troopers, wrote in March 1, 2006, letter suspending Wooten for 10 days. After the union protested it, the suspension was reduced to five days.
Nice. He should have been fired right then and there. And there’s more, including that the Alaska State Troopers confirmed that this guy threatened to kill his father in law if he helped his daughter (Palin’s sister) get a divorce. Additionally, there were protection orders against him prohibiting him from getting anywhere near Palin’s sister. This guy had absolutely no business being anywhere near any police force.
Yet, CNN slaps up a video that makes him look like the victim. Head on over to AJ’s site and read all about who this guy really is and how low CNN is going in their effort to hurt Sarah Palin.
