Read the ‘Troopergate’ report on Sarah Palin

Click here to read the “Troopergate” report in all its 263-page glory; Alaska’s bipartisan Legislative Council today unanimously voted 12-0 (that’s four Democrats and eight Republicans, if anyone’s counting) to release it to the public.

The report finds Gov. Sarah Palin violated Alaska’s executive branch ethics act, which says that “each public officer holds office as a public trust, and any effort to benefit a personal or financial interest through official action is a violation of that trust.”
