ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- A state legislative panel has concluded that Sarah Palin abused her power in the firing of the state's public safety commissioner.
The findings were released after lawmakers emerged Friday from a private session in Anchorage where they spent more than six hours discussing a politically charged ethics report into the firing by Gov. Palin.

Doesn’t matter - the press will take that headline and pound it for over a week.
When the revolution starts, has anyone called dibs on the “journalists” yet?
I’m with you. YAWN!
whoopdeedooo.....her antagonists, I believe.....have spoken....
How fair-and-balanced quoting Sen. Gary Stevens. Is Fox trying to compete with NBC?
Get ready for 24/7 MSM coverage for a few weeks.
I think she should get a medal for firing his sorry a** for not firing the trooper. (albeit, she actually fired him for budget reasons).. The bastard deserved to be arrested, and instead, the good-old-boy network protected him. She fought the establishment system.
Mccain will allow the media to trash her til election day but we have to be civil concerning obama.
The only reason to release the report on a Friday evening of a horrible week on the stock market is because their is no real substance to the charge.
strange it would come out Friday evening
I wonder if Ronald Reagan abused his power by firing thousands of Professional Air Traffic Control employees. Times seem to have really changed.
you must be right
Let’s see Barney Frank to the perp walk FIRST
Next MSM talking point: Will Alaska Governor Sarah Palin be the subject of impeachment/recall hearings?
If some jacka$$ tasers my 10 year old nephew I’ll abuse my power too. Most Americans agree with her.
does not matter there is some fool on msnbc getting a tingly leg concerning this news.
probably because they realized that nobody would give a crap!
The entire Committee must have been made up of all or mostly Democrats, Obama Tools.
“...has anyone called dibs on the journalists yet?...”
I have a feeling that some reporters will be getting some beatings....
They will do anything for the cause, corrupt themselves for the “greater good” of the party and country which they see as the same.
Democrats have no integrity anymore.
UTTER BULLSHIT. SHe can fire the dumb SOB for any damn reason she wants to.
lovely red banner on msnbc.com
“she abused power”
how about she did not violate the law dipshits
If she didn’t fire the bum,
she would have been accused of negligence of duty by the media and the Dems.
And we all know it.
Republicans are damned if they do and damned if they don’t.
the media I recall gave him hell.
“troopergate” = SCUMBAG-GATE
Kangaroos in Alaska... wow!
Misleading headline. Lame...
probably a few of the legislators are up for re-election in November and they’re toast now, having gone after Palin. Look for their names on Obama hiring lists.
Did you honestly expect them to “find” anything different?
They had decided before they even met what the outcome would be.
Even Monegan said she didn’t pressure him, until such time he could help the Democrat party.
It will up to her supporters in Alaska to answer the bell on this one. I mean the political figures in the state.
I still don’t get what was wrong with the firing if she could fire anyone at will for any reason. So, now what?
Read the whole report.
You’ll find that Fox isn’t telling the whole truth.
Yeah its ok for you to having Friends that BOMB and KILL Americans, but protect a 10 year old kid is a CRIME...
I guess its like Aborting the innocent...These Leftists are a disease....the disease is spreading....they must be stopped
It’s a panel of known partisans and known enemies.
It means absolutely nothing.
As part of her defending her actions in properly firing Monaghan over his insubordination about the budget, Governor Plain needs to point out that based on the tasering and the threat Wooten made to kill her father, she would have been justified if she had actually been pressuring Monaghan about that instead of the insubordination.
Have you read the report?
FOX has become a haven for Obamanoids. How can you “abuse power” when you are doing what you’re authorized to do by the constitution. Don’t do drugs! You might end up working for FOX.
No, but I want my “fair share”.
AP is reporting she “unlawfully abused her power.”
The media is so powerful, I dont know what to do. I feel so helpless. With McCain saying dont be mean to 24 hour Palin is mean. Where is our voice? Voices Voices Voices, I hear them on FR but where are the rest?????
Anybody know the political makeup of this legislative panel?
A bunch of Rats don’t approve of Sarah. Next story please.
... Palins firing of Commissioner Monegan was a proper and lawful exercise of her constitutional and statutory authority to hire and fire executive branch department heads.
Let me make a wild guess here that the legislative panel is a bunch of democrat socialists. I might be wrong, but I dare anyone to challenge me.
Oh, by the way
We love Sarah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
