Republican Vice Presidential candidate Governor Sarah Palin is refusing to cooperate with an investigation into the firing of Alaska Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan.
Palin's office claims Monegan was let go for insubordination. Monegan says it's because he wouldn't fire a state trooper named Mike Wooten.
Three years ago that trooper was in the middle of an ugly divorce from Sarah Palin's sister. Monegan says Palin pressured him to fire Wooten. Palin denies that. Monegan ended up losing his job.
Alaska lawmakers have been looking into this matter since July. It has been a bipartisan investigation and Palin had originally agreed to cooperate. But not anymore.
