TOO MUCH INVOLVEMENT! Reported by NBC Sarah Palin called Monegan 24 time to get Bro in Law fired
LISTEN TO THIS CAREFULLY.

PALIN CALLED FORMER ALASKA COMMISSIONER MONEGAN 24 TIMES IN TRYING TO GET HER BROTHER IN LAW FIRED.

Monegan told her she should remove herself from the investigation. Soon after, he was fired.

I feel this is overstepping your role as a public Official. I feel she should be removed from the GOP Vice Presidency. I also feel she should NOT be a govenor.

1. I dunno
Maybe she's best staying on the ticket and being a drag on it?

2. She Fired Monegan
I think that part is getting missed in this story and that's the real outrage. It's bad enough to try to use her job for a personal vendetta, but to fire the guy is way over the line. Abuse of power, just like Bush, more of the same.

8. The guy didn't even get a severance package, His replacement,hand picked,removed days later $10,000
After she fired him, she chose his replacement and hired him, days later it came to light that her replacement choice had a previous pending sexual harassment problem and was let go, for days of service this replacement got a $10,000 severance package, the guy who didn't do anything wrong, nothing.

14. Yes, plus her bad choice of a replacement ALSO should be highlighted.
(1) sought to use office for personal vendetta
(2) fired public official for not cooperating with vendetta
(3) hired controversial replacement
(4) paid replacement a $10k severance

5. That is the ethical question about her. If she would go to such lengths as governor what would she
do as VP.

7. THIS is the kind of stuff that's going to sink them. If .... IF the public hears about it!!
That is why this information needs to get out. Olbermann....even Jon Stewart.

Let people know about how she yanks power away from THE PEOPLE.

A government executive is NOT supposed to use their office for their own private use. She is trampling over people's rights.

>>>~~~~~~~~> Get this information out folks. Copy/paste and mail the url for this vidio to blogs and news outlets.

13. Cheney would have just shown up
with a clay pigeon and a shotgun, and the message would come across loud and clear.
