Alaska lawmakers meet on Palin ethics report

ANCHORAGE, AK Palin has been accused of firing the state's Public Safety Commissioner, after pressuring him to fire a state trooper involved in a nasty divorce with the governor's sister. The report is also expected to touch on Palin's husband Todd's involvement.

Members of a legislative committee reviewing the matter have been meeting behind closed doors today and had to sign a confidentiality agreement before being allowed to read the report.

One of those lawmakers, Republican Peggy Wilson, wonders whether the committee is rushing to a conclusion, saying she's barely had time to read the report. It's estimated to be 300 pages long, with 1,000 pages of supporting documents.
