Palin Finally Ready to Testify in Troopergate Probe . . .

. . . but not before the special prosecutor appointed by bipartisan committee (4 Democrats and 10 Republicans) back in August. Instead, she's ready to talk to the Alaska State Personnel Board, which is, conveniently, appointed by the governor.

Anchorage Daily News sums it up here:

Less than a week after balking at the Legislature's investigation into her alleged abuse of power, Gov. Sarah Palin on Monday indicated she will cooperate with a separate probe run by people she can fire.
Yup. I guess they don't pull punches up there in AK. Wish we'd take a note down here. The American voter should know that any claim made by the McCain/Palin campaign that the governor has been completely cooperative and forthcoming is total garbage. The American voter should know that, but CNN makes it hard to see through the smoke when they help promote the smoke screen.

One other detail the ADN article catches but CNN skips? At least one of the Personnel Board members, Alfred Tamagni, Sr., donated to Palin's gubernatorial campaign back in 2006.
