Palin hires attorney for 'Troopergate' inquiry

A number of outlets have this morning reported that Republican Vice Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin, has appointed an attorney to handle the ongoing inquiry in to her involvement in the sacking of an Alaskan state trooper.

Having taken a look over some of the evidence being presented against Palin (information that is publicly available, and with my non legal background!), I don't think there is a particularly scandalous case against Gov. Palin. Barring a discovery of some smoking gun I would expect this scandal to end with a whimper rather than a bang.

But it might be worth wondering what would happen if she were found guilty of an abuse of power...
