Alaska health director says she was forced out by Palin

One of Alaska's top public health officials says she was forced out of office because Gov. Sarah Palin felt she wasn't in step on social issues. Beverly Wooley ended her stint as state public health director on Wednesday, the second state health official to leave within days. The key source of tension was the recent abortion legislation, Wooley said Thursday.
