Sarah Palin Abuse of Power

An Alaska ethics inquiry found on Friday that U.S. Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin Abused her Power as the state’s governor, casting a cloud over John McCain’s controversial choice of running mate for the November 4 election.

At the same time, McCain shifted his strategy. After a week in which his campaign tried in vain to seize the momentum from Democrat Barack Obama with fierce personal attacks, he adopted a conciliatory tone, calling on supporters to respect the Illinois senator.

The Alaska inquiry centered on whether Palin’s dismissal of the state’s public safety commissioner, Walt Monegan, was linked to her personal feud with a state trooper who was involved in a contentious divorce with the governor’s sister.

A report prepared for the state Legislative Council said Monegan’s refusal to fire the trooper was not the sole reason he was dismissed but was likely a contributing factor. The McCain-Palin campaign had said the commissioner was fired because of poor performance.
