Alaska legislature to subpoena Palin aides in 'troopergate'

The decision to subpoena the aides came after they refused to cooperate voluntarily in the probe of whether Gov. Sarah Palin abused her authoritiy by firing the head of state's Department of Public Safety. The committees conducting the probe said they won't subpoena the governor, however, and will complete the inquiry soon enough so its conclusion won't become an "October surprise."
