ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- State Rep. Les Gara, D-Anchorage, is asking the attorney general to hire an independent investigator to look into witness tampering allegations.
Gara wants to know whether anyone in Gov. Sarah Palin's administration or with the McCain-Palin campaign encouraged officials not to comply with legislative subpoenas in the investigation into abuse of power allegations against Palin.
"In Alaska, if you try and talk somebody out of showing up for a subpoena, that's a crime," Gara said. "And what we know is that until August 29th, everyone was willing to testify -- it was fine.
"The governor was fine with it, it was bipartisan, all of the witnesses were going to testify. After August 29th, people changed positions -- they stopped showing up for subpoenas."
