Palin stretching the truth if not outright lying about TrooperGate

TPM has a link to, and a writeup about, the ABC interview with fired P.S. Commish Walter Monegan. From the TPM writeup:

She also has claimed that she discussed Wooten with Monegan only in the context of the safety of her family. But yesterday, the Washington Post published emails from Palin to Monegan in which she expressed frustration that Wooten was still employed.

She might think the executive privilege whine and other tactics will work to stave off the investigation, but I don’t think so lady. And neither do other lawyer types. The ABC video below.

Palin hires attorney for TrooperGate investigation.

From KTUU, a tv station in AK:

JUNEAU, Alaska — Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the GOP vice presidential candidate, has hired a private practice attorney to defend her and members of her staff in the investigation into the firing of her public safety commissioner.

The state Legislature is investigating whether Palin fired Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan after he refused to fire a state trooper who had divorced Palin’s sister.

Anchorage attorney Thomas V. Van Flein has requested a copy of all witness statements and documentary evidence from the Legislature’s investigator, Stephen Branchflower.

Oh my….this TrooperGate gets curiouser and curiouser…wonder if McCain has heartburn yet?
