JUNEAU – The Alaska Senate voted today to find Gov. Sarah Palin's husband, Todd, and nine Palin aides in contempt for failing to show up when ordered by subpoena to testify in the Legislature's "Troopergate" investigation of the governor.

But the Senate resolution also said there should be no punishment because Todd Palin and the others did eventually submit written statements to the investigator, Steve Branchflower.
"People kept saying 'You've got to do something about the subpoenas — what are you going to do about the subpoenas?" said Anchorage Democratic Sen. Hollis French, who sponsored the resolution."It memorializes their contempt and it balances that wrongdoing against their compliance once the suit was resolved," French said.
Alaska Attorney General Talis Colberg had sued to kill the subpoenas but lost in court. It was after he lost that the witnesses cooperated.
Colberg did not have an immediate comment on the Senate resolution, saying he needed to go through it. The governor's office said it had no comment on the resolution.

… the people most directly impacted by this unethical administration and spineless legislature are Alaskans.. If we're not willing to provide consequences to those who are guilty- we get what we deserve!
Who's paying for Todd's lawyer?
