    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.

    I said all along it was a load of crap that would come to nothing.

    And, as usual, I was right.

    The three person personnel board that she appointed says she's not guilty.

    What a suprise!

    The Alaska legislature will decide in January what punishment she deserves.

    lol.. you guys are funny when she was found guilty it was a non partisan effort that found she commited ethics violations. this group was appointed by Palin herself,, yea hardly unbiased,, but I do understand that there is nothing to work with so you guys take everything you can get and hope it sticks.

    Wrong...Try again?

    "Instead, Palin asked the Personnel Board -- an executive branch agency whose members were appointed by her predecessor -- to handle the investigation, arguing it was the proper legal venue.
