As a lawyer, I struggled to understand how the investigation into "Troopergate" could conclude that Palin acted within her constitutional authority but that she violated an ethics statute. I also found it odd that the media did not cover the story as closely as it reported other Palin moments. I suspected that perhaps they knew that something about the report was fishy, but they refused to criticize it for fear of vindicating Palin. Personally, I believe that Troopergate itself was just a bunch of moose crap.
Well, moments ago, the Alaska Personnel Board issued a statement saying there was no probable cause to believe that Palin violated any ethics law in the controversial firing. Basically, this saga is over. But unfortunately for Palin, so is the campaign.
