Anchorage, Alaska (AP) On the eve of a report on a legislative panel's abuse-of-power investigation into alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, campaign officials released their own report clearing her of any wrongdoing.

Palin, running mate to Republican Presidential Nominee John McCain, is the subject of two inquiries into whether she abused her power by firing her public safety commissioner. The commissioner says he was dismissed for resisting pressure to fire Palin's former brother-in-law, a state trooper.

Lawmakers are expected to release their findings Friday.

The report the McCain-Palin campaign released tonight says the firing was based on a budget dispute. Since then, the report says, the matter has been muddled with innuendo, rumor and politics.
