<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> The Alaska State Trooper at the center of Sarah Palin's so-called "Troopergate Scandal"--which impeded her run for the vice-presidency and stained her record as Alaska governor--has broken his more than year-long silence since his embattled divorce with Palin's sister, Molly, became a cause celebre during last year's presidential campaign.

After reading passages from Palin's memoirs Going Rogue that deal with his marriage and subsequent divorce, a "fed up" Mike Wooten, 37, who still serves as an Alaska State Trooper in Anchorage, called the book "a pack of lies."


A native of California whose father immigrated to the United States from Honduras, <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Wooten served 10 years in the Air Force and three more in the Air National Guard Reserves. He participated in a trio of U.S. military operations in the Persian Gulf War--Desert Storm, Desert Shield and Restore Hope--before returning stateside to Alaska at Elmendorf Air Force Base, about 45 minutes from Wasilla.</span>

<u>Partially disabled from his military service,</u> Wooten pointed out that neither Todd nor Sarah Palin, or Chuck Heath for that metter, served in the armed forces. Wooten said he was particularly "disgusted and incensed" by Palin's "insincere" dedication in Going Rogue to "our men and women in uniform."

Wooten further noted with irony that many of those who have been victimized by Palin during her political career--including former Wasilla police chief Irl Stambaugh; Monegan and himself--were all veterans. "Sarah is only about Sarah," Wooten said. "She doesn't care about the 'men and women in uniform.' It's all about advancing Sarah's career."

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>Public records from Alaska--some of which have been revealed for the first time--chronicle a half-decade long obsession with Wooten by Palin, her father and, later, by Palin's husband Todd.</span>

"They're like poisonous snakes in the grass who spew nothing but venom," Wooten said. "They just lay in wait and they attack you until you're dead."

<span style='font-size: 17pt'>In Going Rogue, Palin mentions none of Wooten's military record, but cites many charges that were brought against Wooten that were subsequently dismissed. She contends that there were "ten different" citizen complaints field against Wooten--without acknowledging that all of them were filed by members of her family or close friends. "They filed every stinking one of the charges," Wooten contends. "But it's been more like two dozen."</span>




In an interview conducted in Alaska this past summer, John Cyr, the former Alaska Public Safety Employees Association Executive Director, confirmed Wooten's charges:

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>Not one complaint has ever been made about Mike Wooten's professional performance from any member of the public other than the Palin/Heath family and their closest friends.</span> The troopers that I've talked to that have worked with Mike tell me Mike is the kind of guy they'd go through a door with. That he does his work. He's a professional. You know, just no complaints out there about Mike's work.

"It's the product of an ugly divorce and custody battle," Cyr [pictured below, at left, with Wooten] said of the complaints against the State Trooper. "It's nothing more than that."</div></div>

OK, so we have Wooten's wword against Palin's. He said, she said. Choose to believe who you will, but don't present it as factual.

Highlighting his military background is a red herring. Military service, while admirable, is hardly a guarantee of honesty and integrity. If it were, you would have been supporting Bush and McCain, and denounced Obama.

It's hard to believe that the Republican party couldn't come up with a better candidate for VP then this petty, vindictive,*****; harder still to believe how close this hockey puck came to being elected to office, riding on the shirttails of Sen. John McCain's good name.
I doubt if it would have changed the outcome had she not been his running mate, as after 8 &*^%$#@ years of GWB the country needed a change at the top.
I think Sarah should have titled her book a little differently...
"Going Rouge" (the pressures of dealing with the day to day problems of applying make-up)
John McCain may as warriors do .."old soldiers never die, they just fade away"... she will soon ...just disappear from the public eye.
The only ones that benefited from her candidacy was the State of Alaska, when she resigned as Gov.
Steve sent me the following earlier, for my approval, before he posted it...since the post was about how he regards me as a contributor here. I advised him to "tone it down" a bit (but not too much):
"Wolf speaks sans the self indulgent professorial tone that is so prevalent here. Talk is good ,but it is also extremely cheap and is really devalued when it only emanates from a keyboard. Too often on blogs I believe posters become more concerned about appearing witty , intellectual or advancing a personal insight- forgetting that words, exclusive of action, are woefully bereft in effecting meaningful change.
In my opinion, this contributors words(Wolf's) have a greater truth and capacity to effect change then all the rest that rely on a cadence of semantics or frenzied Google searches et al.
Some would say his words are lacking in eloquence-but the fact is eloquence and about a buck fifty will get you a cup of coffee now days, and his call to "get up off our butts' has far greater eloquence as it speaks to a plain truth and necessity.*.
Continue to discuss-complain and share opinions-then lets all get up off our butts for a change rather than leave it to another. Do something about it-it's your country and your government." /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/blush.gif
Maybe they should have run "Sarah Lee"....she is better at "cheesecake" then "Miss Alaska" ever was.

By your own standards, shouldn't that be "President GWB"?

If you are going to call me out for not calling your guy "President Obama", you should at least hold yourself to the same standard!

He has no standards other than hate and hypocrisy ... and he diplayed both in that post.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Wooten now joins an ever-growing array of figures from John McCain on down who have challenged the veracity of Palin's memoirs. The list also includes McCain senior advisers Steve Schmidt and Nicolle Wallace, Palin's former legislative director John Bitney, her former political ally Andree McLeod, and former Alaska gubernatorial candidate Andrew Halcro. All Republicans. Wooten identifies himself as a "conservative" as well.

Palin contends "the chapter for our family was closed" with the divorce but fails to acknowledge any of the sustained harassment of Wooten, which, he says, continues to this day. </div></div>
Sounds a little more then "He said, she said.." to me, but I
guess it's just another "inconvenient truth" for some

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Although Palin <u>would try to claim otherwise</u> during the presidential campaign, an independent investigation ordered by the bipartisan Alaska Legislative Council (composed of ten Republicans and four Democrats) and conducted by former Republican prosecutor Steve Branchflower, resulted in the finding "that Governor Palin abused her power by violating Alaska Statute 39.52.110(a) of the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Act."

<span style='font-size: 20pt'>The report issued by Branchflower documented more than thirty occasions in which then Governor Palin, her husband Todd or members of her staff <u>tried to influence Alaska's highly regarded Commissioner of Public Safety, Walt Monegan, to fire Wooten. When Monegan refused, Palin fired him instead.</u>

In addition to the finding that Palin "abused" her office, the Alaska Senate cited Todd Palin and nine other state employees for "contempt" for ignoring legislative subpoenas to testify in the Troopergate investigation.</span> </div></div>


Not just Wooten.
