Private lawyer hired for Palin in 'troopergate' probe

It wasn't immediately clear who hired and is paying for Thomas Van Flein, a member of a large Alaska law firm to represent Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin in the legislature's investigation of her firing of Walt Monegan as head of the state Department of Public Safety. Monegan says he was fired because he wouldn't dismiss Palin's ex brother-in-law.
