Report: Palin let Todd use governor's office to push firing

In finding that Gov. Sarah Palin abused her power in pressing for the firing of her ex-brother-in-law as an Alaska state trooper, legislative investigator Steve Branchflower found that Palin made no effort to stop her husband from using the resources of the governor's office to press his case against Trooper Mike Wooten. "She had the authority and power to require Mr. Palin to cease contacting subordinates, but she failed to act," he wrote.
