An Unlikely Source

From the Trail at the Washington Post:

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is unlikely to meet with a special prosecutor looking into whether she or other state officials improperly pushed to punish a trooper, a spokesman for John McCain’s presidential campaign announced Monday.

Since Palin was named as McCain’s running mate Aug. 29, the campaign has dismissed the state legislature’s investigation into her dismissal of the state’s director of public safety, saying that Democrats are exploiting the probe for political gain.

McCain campaign spokesman Ed O’Callaghan said that Palin is “unlikely to cooperate” with the investigation, which he called “tainted.”

A couple of questions: how is the investigation “tainted” if three of the five members of the committee issuing the subpoenas are Republicans?

And why is the McCain campaign the one issuing the news that Gov. Palin won’t cooperate? What does that tell you?
