Nightly News reported on Thursday, October 16, 2008 that an Alaska investigation into Governor Sarah Palin's firing of Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan found that the governor had abused her powers in the process, but not broken any laws. The report, in fact, found that the governor's abuse of her powers was a violation of the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Act, but that the firing itself was not a violation of Alaska law.
