Troopergate: How it started and how it will end.

Who would of thought that a Governor of Alaska would be selected to be the Vice Presidential pick of the Republican Party. It is evident Andrew Halcro didn't when he first published his story on Trooper Wooten.

Well like any good scandal, it had to have a title thus the idea was spawned off of Halcro's thread and factual misgivings to what the reality is.

Here is where the title was started

July 24, 2008 - 11:51pm tlamb775

Why not ask Wooten himself and ask Judge Suddock how he came to the
conclusion that Wooten has his immaturities and vulnerabilities with conflicts.
Doesn't seem the custody case records are sealed. So it would be public
information thus "publicfacts".

And why is it that Monegan was threatening Palin if the records where
unlawfully obtained.

From Halcro:

"...A short time afterwards, it was discovered that confidential material in
Wooten's Administrative Investigation file had been released to his ex-wife and her attorney. This drew outrage from the Public Safety Union as well as the Commissioner. AI files are strictly confidential and can only be released with the written signature of the Trooper, but yet no one could explain how the detailed confidential information was released."
Then you have this little detail....

"...Reportedly, both Commissioner Monegan and Colonel Audie Halloway
warned that if they found out the file was leaked by the governor's office, they would pursue charges."

Who told Monegan that they were?


Andrew writes:

"...Meanwhile in court, Wooten prevailed at every turn as Judge Suddock quickly realized there was a concerted effort to damage Wooten. Finally
the judge warned that if any of their actions caused Wooten to lose his job or pay in anyway, Molly and her family would be held liable."Hmmm, would that be the goose that lays the golden egg? The goose that has the immaturities and vulnerablities when handling conflict?
Color this one: Troopergate.

Thus began the genisis of Troopergate on this blog:

Soon to be followed a few weeks later by an A.P. story titled "Alaska Troopergate"

From David Hulen in Anchorage --

There will be those who will say the Governor lied and abused her power. But what is at hand here is an abuse of power by internal investigations within the Troopers.

There is a stalemate of sorts between the Troopers and the Palin Administration. And now that it has become public that Palin is a popular Governor is who gaining in popularity nationally, this story will end where Governor Palin continues on her quest with Senator McCain.

Rep Coghill asking Senator French to step down is the first indication that Senator French thought he was going to play tough guy, but he quickly is finding out that his witch hunt is having an effect of spending any political capital he has at a fast rate.

Color Troopergate: Done.
