ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- While Gov. Sarah Palin prepares for Thursday night's vice presidential debate, her campaign is stepping up its efforts to discredit the Legislature's investigation of the governor's firing of Public Safety commissioner Walt Monegan.
The campaign is now taking the fight to the Internet, with new ads at palintruthfiles.com.
The ads are the latest effort by the campaign to attack the investigation it calls politically partisan.
"As the ad shows, led by ringmasters and Obama supporters Senators Kim Elton and Hollis French, each act becomes more preposterous than the last as they cling desperately to an investigation that aims only to drag Governor Sarah Palin through the mud," McCain-Palin spokesperson Meghan Stapleton said.
Investigator Steve Branchflower is said to be preparing a report to come out Oct. 10, despite several state officials -- and the governor's husband -- not showing up for testimony after receiving subpoenas.
