The Alaska Senate confronted Gov. Sarah Palin on Friday over her resistance to Legislative subpoenas in the Troopergate investigation with a mild rebuke for her husband and some of her staff. The resolution was drafted behind the scenes, catching many lawmakers and Palin supporters off guard.
A resolution, which passed in a 16-1 vote, found 10 witnesses in contempt after they balked at testifying before a legislative investigator, but no penalties were issued.

Last July 14, Alaskan lawmakers unanimously voted to investigate the abuse of power allegations against Governor Sarah Palin. At the time, the Governor welcomed the chance to clear the air and had directed her staff to cooperate with the investigations. On August 29, 2008 everything changed. Troopergate was national media. Sarah Palin was picked to be John McCain’s running mate. At 10:09am on February 6, 2009, Senators Johnny Ellis and Hollis French Senate Resolution #5 pass the 16-1 Todd Palin, the Governor’s husband, now guilty of contempt of The Senate of Alaska.

Crap, did I really jump back into polling Alaska? Crazy, since everyone was wrong about the 2008 results. People said they wouldn’t vote for the two crooks — Sen. Ted Stevens and Rep. Don Young — and then they did ! It was a bizarre “Wilder effect” at play. But Alaska is far too entertaining politically to swear off, so we jumped right back in. Research 2000 for Daily Kos. 12/15-17. Likely voters. MoE 4% (MoE 5% for Republican over-sample) (No trend lines).
