Palin Sure Is Catching Flak

…for doing things she had the right to do. Even when it’s ANCIENT history.

…After taking over as Mayor of the small town of Wasilla, Palin fired the longtime local police chief. The former police chief, Irl Stambaugh says he was fired because he stepped on the toes of Palin’s campaign contributors, including bar owners and the National Rifle Association.
Stambaugh’s lawyer, William Jermain, says the chief tried to move up the closing hours of local bars from 5 a.m. to two a.m. after a spurt of drunk driving accidents and arrests.
“His crackdown on that practice by the bars was not appreciated by her and that was one reason she terminated Irl,” said Jermain.

SHUT down the bars early?!?! In the middle of freakin’ nowhere?
I’d jettison his ass, too.
So, anyway, he sues her for dumping him…in 1997. And wuh happened then…?

A federal judge later ruled the mayor, under city law, had the right to fire the police chief for any reason she wanted.

Just like the current brouhaha about the psychopathic trooper.
Keep workin’ it, boys.

    Having been in Wasilla, it’s hardly a backwater, but there aren’t many choices unless you’re driving 40 miles to Anchorage, or head off to Fairbanks. So I’m surprised that Palin didn’t toss the ex-chief out into the snow, naked.
    Seriously, they are reaching, aren’t they? What a fiasco, digging up up every hissy fit since Palin learned to ride a bike. Makes me believe the stories that the Dhimmicrats are running scared.
    Equally serious: boozing is a problem in Alaska. Not only do the native Alaskans has the same lack of alcohol tolerance as the other native Americans (i.e., alcoholism is rampant), when people fall down drunk in the snow, they tend to stay there until spring. Well preserved, but also well concealed.

  2. For YOUR information, I know a thing or two about being drunk in Alaska, Mr. Jeffy Pants.

    It’s also like the supposed scandal of Bush firing federal prosecutors. They are at-will employees and can be let go “for a good reason, a bad reason, or no reason at all.” Yet it’s somehow a criminal probe.
