The personel board has found that Palin did not commit ethics violation in firing of safety commissioner Walt Monegan. This is the entity that has authority over ethics violations that the legislature illegally investigate and “found” Palin guilty of commiting ethics violation last month in a politically motivated posturing.
The Alaska Personnel Board investigator hired to look into whether Sarah Palin abused her power by firing her public safety commissioner found no probable cause that she violated Alaska’s ethics law.
The decision is a reversal from a legislative investigation that concluded she had abused her power, by allowing her husband and other staffers to pressure the public safety commissioner to fire a state trooper who went through a nasty divorce from Palin’s sister.
Timothy Petumenos, the independent investigator hired by the Alaska Personnel Board, plans to release his report on the eve of Election Day.
