Click here to read a letter explaining Senate Resolution 5 to Sarah Palin. The precious description of “equal branches of government” is civics 101…and apparently needed. The decision to not hold hearings on the resolution was to avoid the partisan media grandstanding so prevalent last fall. Senator Stevens signed this letter on behalf of the working majority comprised of 10 Republicans and 6 Democrats; clearly the definition of bi-partisanship.
With the resignation of Talis Colberg, there is an attitude of “move along, nothing to see, the sacrificial lamb is dead as a doornail.” Really? I want Talis talking. I have yet to meet anyone who says he’s not one of the nicest people they’ve ever met. This isn’t about being nice…it’s about being out horse powered by the McCain campaign attorneys. Who was advising Mr. Colberg to encourage witnesses to break the law in their defiance to subpoenas? Mr. Colberg, like most public officials swear to uphold the Constitution…not protect his boss.
Here’s the rub. Colberg served at the pleasure and whim of the Governor. The next attorney general will be no different. We really must have a the top law enforcement officer for the state free of the thumb of any governor…not just Sarah.
Answers owed to Alaska?
1.) What did we get for our $100,000 Branchflower Report? The Senate Resolution 5 vote re-validated the investigation. So, are they just going to put the “abuse of power” findings on eBay?
2.) Who advised Talis Colberg? Ed O’Callahan (not admitted to the AK Bar)? James Dobson’s Liberty (ironic) Legal Team?
3.) What State Officials are willing to stand up to Sarah Palin’s ambition in the name of Rule of Law? Who in Juneau have their balls on vacation with their spines? Who will stand up to the lady-Goliath with five stones of truth?
Where’s my magic wand? Oh, right next to my crystal ball…
