ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Sarah Palin unlawfully abused her power as governor by trying to have her former brother-in-law fired as a state trooper, the chief investigator of an Alaska legislative panel concluded Friday. The politically charged inquiry imperiled her reputation as a reformer on John McCain's Republican ticket.

Palin had the right to fire anyone in her administration just like Bush had the right to fire the US Attorneys. In both instances the people fired served at their discretion.
I think there is a little confusion, Palin did not fire a State Trooper, she fired someone who refused to fire the trooper. She had every right to do it.
ANCHORAGE, Alaska - The politically charged investigation into Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is over, and its conclusions are stinging. But the fallout, if any, might not come until Election Day.
