Alaska Attorney General Resigns….

Talis Colberg has resigned in the wake of the Troopergate scandal. Last Friday the Alaska Senate found the witnesses who had ignored the subpoenas in Contempt. The subpoenas has been issued when Sarah Palin’s willingness to comply with Mr. Branchflower waned after her nomination.

Governor Palin’s press release included:

“Talis is a highly intelligent, thoughtful and reserved scholar who brought considerable legal knowledge and great personal integrity to the position. I appreciate his willingness to serve and as the search for a new attorney general begins, I will look for someone with the same strong moral character as Talis. I wish him well in his future endeavors.”

Last fall, Alaskans for Truth delivered a petition to the Governor’s office with thousands of signatures asking for Mr. Colberg’s resignation. The Senate vote created added pressure. Sarah let Talis resign to day as though his illegal advice to her husband Todd and her aids WAS HIS OWN IDEA. The McCain legal stromtroopers that were crawling all over this state and Mr. Colberg was over his head. When Frank Bailey, aid to Palin, was outed with a phone call for putting indirect pressure on Walt Monegan he put in a letter of resignation. Palin refused to accept it. I like Frank, but Palin paid him State money to keep him under her “legal teams advice.” The new Attorney General needs to be willing to investigate the abuse of power charges against Palin. Do you think that’s on her list of questions during the interview?

Alaska’s witness tampering law makes it a crime to “attempt” to “induce” a person not to show up for a legislative subpoena.

Help Wanted; Attorney General for Alaska.

I’m expecting Joe the Plumber to apply.

Senate President Gary Stevens is under pressure from Palin to sweep all under the rug with this resignation. All the findings in the Branchflower report paid for by Alaskans…irrelevant. Lookie, Talis is gone…it’s all good now! NO IT’S NOT. Please tell Mr. Stevens (very respectfully) that we need answers. The $100,000 investigation belongs to Alaskans, not the Governor.

  1. How about Tom Obermeyer?

    I’m secretly hoping that Dr. Thomas Muthee can pass the Alaska bar on his first try….

  2. Obermeyer – LOL. How about Wayne Anthony Ross or maybe Tim Petumenos.

  3. Joe the Plumber – good one! I was expecting her to ask Rush Limbaugh to be her running mate in the next Presidential election… but Joe the Plumber it will be!

  4. What chance does Talis have of getting in to the Federal DA for District of Alaska position?

    For example, if Sarah appoints Karen Loeffler, then Talis becomes the only applicant to fill the permanent Senior DA position?????

    Gotta close that barn gate.

  5. BigSlick, what you call “Federal DA” is the U.S. Attorney for Alaska, and he or she is a U.S. Justice Department employee who is appointed by the President of the US. Last time I looked, the President was not a Palin supporter. We in Chicago have had very active U.S. Attorneys, as you may have noticed, but it’s a bit embarrassing to be dependent on them.

  6. Just one more BIG question on Palin’s Administration. What the heck is going on, and on and on! How much does she think we can swallow. She doesn’t belong in that position. Pleeeazeeee go away Sarah!

  7. Now that Bush is gone, looks as though Sarah is setting up as the new dictator.

  8. [...] came with no penalties; just the finding. Four days later, Attorney General Talis Colberg resigned. Colberg purportedly advised those found in contempt to ignore their subpoenas. In February 2007, [...]
