|Description||Alaska lawmakers voted Friday to subpoena the husband of Gov. Sarah Palin, the Republican vice presidential candidate, in a move that transformed a messy state personnel issue into a national campaign controversy. |
The lawmakers acted at the request of Stephen Branchflower, who is in the midst of an investigation into the governor's dismissal of the state's director of public safety.
Branchflower said he also wants to interview the governor, but omitted her from the 13-person list of subpoena targets he presented to the lawmakers overseeing his investigation.
Branchflower said Todd Palin is "such a central figure. ... I think one should be issued for him."
Thomas Van Flein, a private attorney hired to represent the governor, did not immediately return calls for comment.
