Ted Cruz camp: 'Blow to Sarah Palin' if she endorses Donald Trump - Washington Times
John McCain 's election campaign last night suffered the body blow that Republicans had been bracing themselves for when his vice-presidential candidate, Sarah Palin , was found to have abused her powers in pursuit of a personal feud against her former brother-in-law. At the conclusion of the ten-week investigation into the so-called Troopergate affair, Palin was found to have breached the ethics rules that govern her conduct as governor of Alaska. The findings were delivered by an investigator appointed last July by a Republican-controlled committee of the Alaskan state legislature. He began his inquiries shortly before Palin was picked as McCain's running mate, and his conclusions appear certain to lead to questions over McCain's judgment and to allegations that she would be unsuited for national office. Stephen Branchflower, a former prosecutor, found Palin had breached the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Act, which states that "each public officer holds office as a public trust and any effort to benefit a personal or financial interest through official action is a violation of that trust". Branchflower concluded that Palin's feud with her former brother-in-law, Mike Wooten, an officer of the Alaskan state police, was "likely a contributory factor" in her decision to dismiss the head of that force, Walt Monegan.
