Gop's and palin under investigation for witness tampering?

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."

  • OP, I'm a democrat. Or a "liberal". Or an "Obama Mama" as we're so fondly referred to on this site.

    I'm just sick of everyone trying to sling shit in all directions.

    Posting stuff like this isn't going to change anyone's votes or minds right now. There's no point in discussing it, there's nothing we can do about it.

  • Mehhh...I don't think it's really our place to worry about it. If there's any wrongdoing going on, SOMEONE will find out and prosecute the correct people.

  • funny how when it's a republican all of a sudden is not our place to worry about it. If people running for office are committing the crime of witness tampering I want to know about it. regardless of who it is.

  • So worry about Obama being investigated for fraud over his campaign donations.

    If you want to worry about Palin you go right ahead. This Republican isn't worried about Obama's donations, though, because like cait wisely pointed out, if someone's doing wrong, people will find out and they'll be prosecuted.

  • Harvard Law Professor Charles Fried - who has been one of the most prominent conservative thinkers in the country and served as Solicitor General of the United States under Reagan - announced that he's cast his vote for Obama in an absentee ballot.

    Fried also asked to be removed from several campaign-related committees on which he served and stated that his reason for voting Democrat was "the choice of Sarah Palin at a time of deep national crisis."

  • Obama was also accuse of being a Moslim, Now the guy who started it all is saying he made a mistake. Obama is being check over with a fine tooth comb on everything he does because of these rumors. By the time the final vote comes they will either find something on him or we will need to rename him "Mr. Clean".

    I do believe the subpoena charge is very serious, that is what we have had with the Bush administration. Bush has thrown out the constitution and has done what ever he has wanted including casting off subpoena's as nothing. Do we want another administration that feel they can do as they please and the constitution and laws mean nothing?
