Former public safety commissioner, Walter Monegan, shared emails with The Washington Post that reveal that Gov. Sarah Palin "harshly criticized Alaska state troopers for failing to fire her former brother-in-law and ridiculed an internal affairs investigation into his conduct," report The Post's James V. Grimaldi and Karl Vick. Palin has requested the investigation into possible misconduct be moved from the bipartisan state legislative panel currently responsible for the inquiry to the state personnel board. The members of the state personnel board were appointed by Gov. Palin.
