Palin Pre-Empts Ethics Probe, Clears Self
As a matter of fact, no - I’m not kidding.
From CBS News:
(CBS/AP) Trying to head off a potentially embarrassing state ethics report on GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, campaign officials released their own report Thursday that clears her of any wrongdoing.
Sen. John McCain's running mate is the subject of a legislative investigation into whether she abused her power as governor by firing her public safety commissioner.
Lawmakers are expected to release their own findings Friday, after Alaska's Supreme Court refused to shut down the investigation in a decision Thursday.
Palin is said to have investigated herself further and found evidence that she likes the color red, is afraid of clowns, and remains confident that John McCain is a drag on her ticket.
