Sarah Palin broke no rules in the attempted dismissal of her former brother-in-law who was involved in a nasty divorce dispute with her sister, tasered his 10-year old stepson, threatened her parents, and drove a state vehicle while legally drunk.
That is the conclusion of an independent Personnel Board investigation of the Alaska Governor's handling of the situation.ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A report has cleared Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin of ethics violations in the firing of her public safety commissioner.
Released Monday, the report says there is no probable cause to believe Palin or any other state official violated the Alaska Executive Ethics Act in connection with the firing. The report was prepared by Timothy Petumenos, an independent counsel for the Alaska Personnel Board.
A separate legislative investigation recently concluded that Palin, the Republican vice presidential nominee, abused her office by allowing her husband and staffers to pressure the public safety commissioner to fire a state trooper who went through a nasty divorce from Palin's sister.
Palin says the firing had nothing to do with the trooper.
