    You think they're "best friends" and he never told her what he was doing?

    I'd think it more likely that he was doing exactly what they said... acting on her behalf and at her behest.

    Rut Roh? :lol:

    Wasn't she the "top state official" ? And didn't know about it? :eusa_clap:

    How could that have been? Was she out hunting polar bears and wolves, or was she too busy preaching at her church while teaching her daughter about abstinence in her sexual activity. :eusa_eh:

    :eusa_eh: I ain't buy'it ... you are? :confused:

    is this like Reagan/Bush with Iran/Contra? I don't recall and it happened without our knowledge?

    She's the gov of Alaska and as Todd says, his best friend. We're to believe the he worked secretly behind HER back regarding a man who was married to HER sister?

    yeah... is she selling that bridget to nowhere again?

    The documents, released on the same day the state Supreme Court heard arguments in a lawsuit designed to block the probe, describe Todd Palin's extraordinary level of access to a variety of the governor's top aides.

    He told them emotional stories about Wooten threatening and emotionally abusing his family. He said he talked to anyone who would listen. He gave them photos and documents, which they forwarded to others in the administration, and he questioned how Wooten kept his job.

    Even Gov. Palin's special assistant, Ivy Frye, said she was distraught when she was told about the situation.

    "I've felt empathy for the Palin and Heath families in having to endure harassment, intimidation, threats and abuse from a former family member," Frye wrote.

    But Frye said she never talked about it with the governor or mentioned the idea of asking Public Safety Commissioner Walter Monegan to fire Wooten.

    Monegan says he was fired for not dismissing Wooten, a claim that touched off the politically charged investigation just before McCain chose Palin as his running mate. Palin says she fired Monegan over a budget dispute. The documents filed late Wednesday bolster that claim and also describe an effort by Monegan to wrest control of the department away from Palin.

    Todd Palin said he never pressured anyone -- including his wife. In fact, he says that after talking about the matter with her repeatedly, she finally told him to "drop it."

    "Anyone who knows Sarah knows she is the governor and she calls the shots," Todd Palin wrote. "I make no apologies for wanting to protect my family and wanting to publicize the injustice of a violent trooper keeping his badge."


    Docs show Palin's husband being someone concerned... but nothing showing he pressured or caused anything.. nor do they show Palin herself did anything

    Looks like Sarah has a pit bull of her own.

    There's no wrong doing there. Sorry. Wooten is, according to everybody, including himself, an incredible asshole, who was caught drinking in his car and tasered (which he admitted) his own 11 year old kid.

    Palin fired his boss because he challenged her. I guess she's his boss. She gets to do that. It's called subordination, and I have no problem whatsoever with it.

    And now he's pissed.

    Tough shit. He and Wooten can comfort one another, maybe.
