Governor Sarah Palin was deposed for three hours Friday night in St. Louis, in the scandal where she is accused of unfairly firing an official because he would not fire her brother in law. Critics believe Palin wanted her brother in law fired because he was divorcing her sister. The State Personnel board is looking into weather Alaska’s public safety director was wrongfully fired this summer. Associated Press Reports indicate, the deposition marks the first time Palin has formally addressed the matter under oath. Palin’s husband Todd also gave a separate deposition on the matter.
Earlier this month, a bipartisan report on “Troopergate” indicated Palin abused power in firing the state’s public safety commissioner. The report also concluded she was in violation of state ethics laws and played an active role in a vendetta against her brother in law. Does this hurt the McCain Palin ticket? Should Sarah Palin talk to America about this issue before the election? Should John McCain be worried about this issue and its impact on his campaign?
