Mmmmmm, Mmmmmm...............Sweet! Troopergate Witness Flips Like A Pancake
An important witness in Palin's troopergate scandal changed her testimony. Initially she had denied that Sarah and Todd Palin had pressured her to deny a claim for her ex-brother-in-law, Wooten. But faced with perjury charges, Murlene Wilkes now acknowledges the Palins' involvement.
Interestingly, Wilkes held a big contract with the state of Alaska for Worker's compensation. Her bid for this contract was not the lowest received by the State, and Wilkes was under the impression that to keep this contract, she needed to deny Wooten's claim. Wooten's claim was suddenly denied.
Branchflower, the independent investigator, is due to release his report on Oct 10th. The McCain campaign has been doing its best to derail this investigation; last week 3 witnesses ignored their subpoenas, and seven more are expected to this week.
So this is cooperativeness and transparency Palin style. Fortunately, I think we can all see right through their obstructionist tactics-----as long as we're watching.
