For those who’d like to read the full report on “Troopergate” – also known as the Branchflower Report, I’m posting this link to the full 263 page report (pdf format).

Branchflower Troopergate Report

Stephen Branchflower was asked by the Alaska Legislature to research the long-standing allegations of the misuse of power by the Governor and her husband in attempting to get ex-brother-in-law Wooten fired from his position as a Trooper, and the subsequent firing of Department of Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan.

The summary of the findings:

  • Sarah Palin committed an ethical breach by using the power of the Governor’s office in pursuing a personal vendetta against Wooten.
  • Palin’s firing of Monegan was not illegal because the position is appointed by the Governor, and can be replaced at will.
  • Palin’s firing of Monegan demonstrated poor judgement and an ethical breach of her duty as Governor.
