JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — The Alaska Senate on Friday found Gov. Sarah Palin’s husband and nine state employees, including some of her top aides, in contempt for ignoring subpoenas to testify in the Legislature’s Troopergate investigation.

The Senate said it would seek no punishment for the witnesses’ failure to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee last fall in an investigation into the governor’s firing of her public safety commissioner, Walt Monegan.

“During the Monegan investigation, we were reminded that the legislative branch’s power of subpoena is an important one, and must be respected by the executive branch,” said Sen. Hollis French, D-Anchorage. “With this resolution, the Senate is making it clear that we are a coequal branch of state government.”

When are people going to understand that Palin is just another self-promoting, lying republican who thinks that they are above the law. She is good for one thing and one thing only, and its not politics.  She fulfills the sexual fantasy of the sexually oppressed republican male, nothing more.  This is the one thing that the McCain camp got right in selecting her.
