Sarah Palin's husband refuses to testify in 'troopergate' investigation

Sarah Palin's husband Todd has refused to comply with a subpoena demanding he testify in the "troopergate" investigations because he is too busy working on her election campaign.

The Republican vice presidential candidate is being probed for an alleged abuse of power during her tenure as governor of Alaska by the state's senate judiciary committee.

In a case that predates her selection as John McCain's running mate, Mrs Palin is accused of firing Alaska's public safety commissioner because he would not sack a state trooper who was involved in a messy divorce from her sister.

Mr Palin's refusal to obey the summons could mean the committee will be unable to rule on the case before the presidential election on November 4.

It could also put him in contempt of the Alaska state legislature, but this cannot formally happen until the body reconvenes in January.

The family's lawyer Thomas van Flein explained Mr Palin's decision in a letter to the independent investigator.

"Because his spouse is her party's nominee for vice president of the United States, his scheduling obligations over the next two months will make it virtually impossible for him to prepare for and present the testimony called for in the subpoena at the specified location during that time period," Mr van Flein wrote.

A spokesman for the Republican presidential campaign said the investigation, headed by the Democratic head of the Alaska senate judiciary committee, was politically motivated.

"The objections boil down to the fact that the legislative council investigation is no longer a legitimate investigation because it has been subjected to complete partisanship," said Ed O'Callaghan.

The Alaskan legislature last week gave the independent investigator the power to issue subpoenas after some witnesses refused to be interviewed.

While Mrs Palin has escaped a subpoena, her husband and several members of staff were ordered to testify.

"Nobody is above the law," said State Senator Bill Wielechowski, an Anchorage Democrat. "Just because you're the husband of someone who is running for vice president doesn't mean you can flout the law."

Sin, you must not have read my post about Palin Quayle and the fact that she doesn't claim to be in the executive branch of our government. Yet she conviently used "executive privilege" status for her emails needed in the troopergate, ethics violation probe.

So, if you are presented with a subpoena but don't comply, do you think you'd get away with it? I doubt it would make any difference to the judge to which party you belong.
