More evidence of serious corruption from Alaskan secessionist Sarah Quayle Palin.... http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/story?id=5713866 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. In his 1997 lawsuit, Stambaugh also alleged that his stand on restricting concealed weapons upset the NRA.
