    Gov. Sarah Palin on Wednesday revealed an audio recording that shows an aide pressuring the Public Safety Department to fire a state trooper embroiled in a custody battle with her sister.

    Palin, who has previously said her administration didn't exert pressure to get rid of trooper Mike Wooten, also disclosed that members of her staff had made about two dozen contacts with public safety officials about the trooper.

    Kirk, for fuck's sake. It's NOTHING new. We've already rehashed this in other threads.

    She lied when she said that her staff did not pressure the Public Safety Commissioner. This is a new twist.

    Oh, it is? Then why was that posted on August 14?

    Every article we've seen about this says the exact same thing. She originally did not know her staff had pressured Monegan. When a staff member brought her the tape, she immediately turned it over to investigators.

    Straight from the article you posted:

    Honest to God you are thick! You think her staff just made two dozen calls trying to get her brother in law fired and she didn't know anything about it? :lol::lol:

    No, I don't. But, as I've said, even if Wooten was one of her reasons for firing Monegan, it was just icing on the cake. I have no problems with her firing someone who's not doing their job to protect the people.

    And again, what proof is there that should let a governor destroy a public officials career--who happens to be her brother in law engaged in a messy divorce with her sister? \


    If you don't see a problem here its because you are not thinking.

    What's funny is she did not admit her staff applied pressure to the Public Safety Commissioner, until the audio tape was discovered.

    Just like Nixon!
