Troopergate/Wootengate, take your pick
The Washington Post has a really interesting article about the ethics charges currently being made against McCain’s running mate Sarah Pailn. It seems her staff was really interested in getting rid of a trooper (Palin’s ex brother in law) who is in a custody battle with the Alaskan governor’s (Palin’s) sister.
And then the Commissioner over the trooper was fired for not dealing with trooper alcoholism in the rank and file quickly enough.
I’m sure it’s all innocent enough. I mean… why would anyone who was being considered for a position that’s just just one McCain day at the beach away from the Presidency be involved in anything unsavory. Surely, the Republicans have properly vetted someone like this.
