    ... Top Attack Dog In Palin Troopergate Smear Campaign Is Phony Soldier


    Democratic state Senator Hollis French, the lead investigator in the smear campaign against Governor Palin, promised his party that the results of the Troopergate probe would be an "October surprise" that would "likely be damaging to the administration."

    French is one of the 20%'ers in Alaska who does not approve of Governor Sarah Palin.

    He also is a staunch Obama supporter:

    Governor Palin fired former public safety director Walt Monegan for several incidents of insubordination.

    Hollis French and Monegan are close friends.

    On his resume French states that he served in the Marine Corps:

    ...in fact his ONLY exposure to the Marine Corp was attending a Marine ROTC PLC - from which he was DISMISSED and granted a "Discharge" as a Private.
    --He NEVER attended, much less graduate from either of the USMC Boot Camps.
    --He FAILED to pass the ROTC Platoon Leader Course - thus failing to make the grade to become a Marine Officer.

    Anyone who has earned the title.

    Public lies of this sort place the "investigator" under suspicion. What else will he lie about?

    Witch hunts can discredit any supposed facts.

    I am still confused about the relevance of the whole issue. My understand is that the person in question serves at the pleasure of the governor, and thus there is no reason needed to fire him or her. So it appears that Palin is being investigated for something she was entitled to do.

    Let's see the proof of your allegations. Certainly anyone who has been a marine wouldn't spread falsehoods.

    It's a manufactured scandal.

    Relevance is not needed.

    You should really back up a few steps, and re-examine what you wrote.

    (BTW: remember, the individual in question never finished any Marine bootcamp, and was never actually a Marine. I'd have to see his discharge papers before I believed he actually earned the title of "Marine.")

    Unbelievable. Hollis French actually states he had military service as a Marine Corps Reserve PLC private.

    http://www.akdemocrats.org/index.php?con_id=16

    Here's a fact for you: If the PLC course is to prep future Marine Corps officers, and you can only claim to have been a private, well, guess what? You didn't pass the course.

    Think I need to sic some of my Marine Corps brethren on this guy, see if they can figure out why he claims a place among the few and the proud.

    The charge is a misuse of her power as Governor. Do you believe that a governor or VP can fire people because they divorced your sister? There isn't any place in government for this kind of action for purely personal reasons.

    Here is the entry for French Hollis' bio.

    The relevant line is:

    This stands for United States Marine Corps Reserve (Platoon Leader's Class)

    All of this would simply go away if she were to answer the questions surrounding the events that are in question. If she has nothing to hide, then why is she so reluctant to answers??

    If this were Obama or Biden, the acolytes on talk radio and FauxNews would be all over them, and everybody knows it.

    If she is innocent, she could make this all go away..................

    Very good post, the facts are McCain sent teams of lawyers to Alaska to check into this situation. The lawyers are claiming bias because of the democrat leader and told the employee's of Alaska not to participate.

    Palin would benefit by looking like the reform attack dog they told us she is if she wins this case. McCain's campaign has much to gains if they can win this case. But they choose to bottle neck it in litigation?

    If they thought they could win they would have the hearing broadcast over the TV with every media outlet in the country trying the case along with the board and even if that democratic board finds her guilty she will be innocent in the public eye and she will get more votes. They choose not to do this?

    Why don't we hear more about the Governor using a Yahoo account to conduct official business? Talk about bad judgment, I think that ranks at the top of the bad judgment and "what you doing" charts.

    Sometimes one word makes a lot of difference, doesn't it?

    I don't believe he even attended the training courses (needed) to pass.

    Better?:thumbs:

    Troopergate is secondary these days

    It is all on John McCain now, Sarah Palin may want to worry about this if she has
    aspirations for 2012 and it seems she has support on this board for such a run.

    Perhaps people are defending this Troopergate precisely for that reason.

    Are they seeing the writing on the wall.


    Has John McCain been written off?

    Why even a topic on Troopergate now or during this time?

    I think the Polls(and conservative commentary) show that most people think John McCain showed bad judgement in picking her, but Sarah Palins fan base really like her, problem is they are not most people.

    so again we are back to John McCain and this being all on him, Sarah at the rallies seems to get them into a mob mentality to the point of making negative press, which in turn makes them more mob like(they hate the press).

    I think this topic is all about 2012 and Sarah running for President
