the alaska gas pipeline..a flawed bidding process? Palin under investigation again?

http://www.ktuu.com/Global/story.asp?S=9239875
ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Gov. Sarah Palin's plan to build an Alaska natural gas pipeline is under national scrutiny.

According to an Associated Press investigation, Palin's bidding process was not only flawed, her administration has ties to TransCanada, the company awarded the contract through the Alaska Gasline Inducement Act.

Prior to the AGIA bill, the leader of Palin's pipeline team, Marty Rutherford, had been a partner at a lobbying firm where she worked on behalf of a TransCanada subsidiary.

Rutherford's former business partner at the lobbying firm was TransCanada's lead private lobbyist in the pipeline deal, meeting with lawmakers in the weeks before the vote to grant TransCanada the contract.
