Palin Cleared in Troopergate Report

Good news for Governor Palin, but not a great shock. Even the partisan report that came out a few weeks ago only found her guilty of not controlling her husband.

A report has cleared Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin of ethics violations in the firing of her public safety commissioner.

Released Monday, the report says there is no probable cause to believe Palin or any other state official violated the Alaska Executive Ethics Act in connection with the firing. The report was prepared by Timothy Petumenos, an independent counsel for the Alaska Personnel Board.

A separate legislative investigation recently concluded that Palin, the Republican vice presidential nominee, abused her office by allowing her husband and staffers to pressure the public safety commissioner to fire a state trooper who went through a nasty divorce from Palin’s sister.

Update: Love her or hate her, win or lose, when John McCain chose Sarah Palin as his running mate, a star was born. Jim Hoft has some amazing pictures posted from a huge Palin rally in Missouri.
