Alaska First Gentleman Todd Palin is willing to respond to questions from the state legislature’s Troopergate investigation after all, the McCain-Palin campaign announced yesterday.
But he’ll only do so in writing, and the questions must be passed through his lawyer, according to the Anchorage Daily News. That contrasts with his willingness to be interviewed in person by the investigator for the state’s Personnel Board, which is also probing the Troopergate allegations.
Both Todd and his GOP vice-presidential candidate wife are expected to talk with the Personnel Board investigation next week, according to the McCain-Palin campaign.
Previously, Todd Palin had refused to comply with a subpoena from the legislature’s special counsel for the probe, Stephen Branchflower. It’s not clear whether his offer to respond in writing only would satisfy the subpoena, the paper reported.
