Panel Finds Palin Abused Power.....but which Palin?

*A legislative investigator found that Palin violated state ethics laws and abused her power by trying to have her former brother-in-law fired as a state trooper.
*The report notes a few instances in which Palin pressed the case against trooper Mike Wooten, but it was her husband, Todd, who led the charge. Todd Palin had extraordinary access to the governor's office and her closest advisers and he used that access to try to get Wooten fired.
*Gov. Palin knowingly "permitted Todd to use the Governor's office and the resources of the Governor's office, including access to state employees, to continue to contact subordinate state employees in an effort to find some way to get Trooper Wooten fired," Branchflower's report reads.
Branchflower report:
State Ethics Statutes:

Did this trooper deserved to be fired? Yes
Did Sarah Palin abuse her power as Govener? Yes
Did Todd Palin abuse his wife's power as Govener? Yes

There's a right way to do something and there's a wrong way to do something. (which people in power always seem to forget).
Gov. Sarah Palin and her husband Todd Palin chose the wrong way on this one.
