Palin Investigation To Be Released Next Month
The Alaska legislative committee investigating Gov. Sarah Palin said today it would issue its report Oct. 10, moving up the release of its findings. The Associated Press reports that House Judiciary Chairman Jay Ramras, a Republican, said the earlier date for the report was meant to avoid the appearance of a last-minute "October surprise."
The investigation by a former district attorney was initially scheduled for completion by the end of October. But Ramras said in a statement that legislators "agreed that an earlier completion date was achievable, and that it was fair to all sides" according to AP. Lawmakers said they would not subpoena Palin, but she may be interviewed by phone.
The inquiry will examine whether Palin wrongly dismissed the state's public safety commissioner because he refused to fire her ex-brother-in-law, state trooper Mike Wooten.
Wooten, in an exclusive interview with CNN, said he had made mistakes and "learned from those mistakes." He said he is trying to "move on" and be a good father to his children.
