REPUBLICANS CALL REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED INVESTIGATORY COMMITTEE BIASED AGAINST REPUBLICANS - JUST A TAD BIT TOO MUCH DOUBLE-SPEAK FOR ME

The following are excerpts from an AP article on Troopergate. Remember McCain is calling it a partisan hatchet job by the Democrats. Note the composition of the investigatory committee.

By STEVE QUINN, Associated Press Writer

"JUNEAU, Alaska - Five Republican state lawmakers filed suit Tuesday to end the bipartisan investigation into Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's firing of the public safety commissioner even though the vice presidential candidate once said she welcomed the probe into allegations of abuse of power."

"The lawsuit called the investigation "unlawful, biased, partial and partisan." None of the lawmakers who filed the suit in Anchorage Superior Court serves on the bipartisan Legislative Council that unanimously approved the investigation."

"The lawsuit seeks to either delay the investigation until after the Nov. 4 general election or remove French and Elton."

"There is no nonpartisan reason to complete this investigation until after the election," said Anchorage attorney Kevin G. Clarkson. "We just want to take the politics out of it and bring fairness back into it."

Here is the kicker - the investigatory committee which is allegedly biased against Palin is control by the Republicans over the Democrats 2/1.

"The Legislative Council, made up of four Democrats and eight Republican, voted unanimously to investigate the circumstances of Monegan's dismissal."
