Todd Palin seals his lips!

The husband of John McCain's running mate, Sarah Palin, has refused to give evidence in the "Troopergate" investigation of his wife's alleged abuse of power as governor of Alaska. Troopergate is the name given to this alleged scandal over accusations that Sarah Palin sacked the state's public safety commissioner because he refused to fire her former brother-in-law, a state trooper. I don't think I'd like to get on the wrong side of this woman. Unlike the easily-pleased gathering at the Republican Convention, I sense she may be a little like fluff around cold steel. I hope I'm wrong, because if not, and she gets elected, John McCain is in for a hard time!

Meanwhile, as the investigation gathers slight speed, state senators have claimed that unco-operative witnesses are effectively sidetracking the probe until after US election day. Perish the thought!

Todd Palin was among 13 people subpoenaed by the Alaska legislature. Are the others so tightlipped? Come on Sarah, own up, tell us what happened and let this all die down.
