Washington (AP) Alaska's ousted public safety commissioner is arguing that a state legislative report damages Gov. Sarah Palin's image of being an upfront and open political figure.
Investigator Stephen Branchflower concluded in a report late Friday that Palin abused her powers as governor by trying to have her former brother-in-law fired as a state trooper. But there was no recommendation in that report for any action against Palin, the
Republican vice presidential nominee.
Former Public Safety Commissioner Walter Monegan told NBC's “Today” show in a telephone interview from Alaska that he was “relieved” the legislative report has been completed. But he did not say what legal options he might be considering.

Monegan did say he believes Palin “took a big blow to her credibility, and more significantly to her promises of being open and transparent."
