This is pretty awesome:
Palin pre-empts state report, clears self in probe
On the eve of a report on a legislative panel’s abuse-of-power investigation into Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, campaign officials released their own report clearing her of any wrongdoing.
Palin, running mate to Republican presidential nominee John McCain, is the subject of two inquiries into whether she abused her power by firing her public safety commissioner. The commissioner says he was dismissed for resisting pressure to fire Palin’s former brother-in-law, a state trooper.
Lawmakers are expected to release their findings Friday.
And all this time, I thought Obama was the one pushing audacity. NY Times story here on the background.
