It’s 9:15 in Alaska, and the Legislative Council is meeting right now.
The Legislative Council is expected to vote sometime today whether to make the 263-page report public. The legislators will first meet behind closed doors, starting around 9 a.m. this morning, to receive a briefing from Steve Branchflower, the investigator they hired to look into the governor’s dismissal of her public safety commissioner, Walt Monegan, and whether she improperly pressured him to fire a state trooper divorced from her sister. The meeting of the 14-member council will be at the downtown Anchorage Legislative Information Office.
Meantime, a group calling itself “Alaskans for Truth” wrote a letter to Palin on Thursday saying the Supreme Court decision proves that “there is no evidence this investigation has been anything but ‘fair and just.’ ” The group organized an anti-Palin rally late last month, called for the attorney general to lose his job over his handling of the investigation, and encouraged people to urge members of the Legislative Council to make Branchflower’s report public.
