Kopp takes job as legislative aide

Posted: Thursday, January 21, 2010

JUNEAU - Chuck Kopp, who briefly served as former Gov. Sarah Palin's public safety commissioner, is working as a legislative aide to Republican Sen. Fred Dyson.

An aide to the Eagle River lawmaker said Dyson was not immediately available Wednesday but confirmed Kopp's new position.

Kopp, a former Kenai police chief, was appointed public safety commissioner by Palin following her controversial firing of former Commissioner Walt Monegan in what became known as Troopergate.

Kopp resigned days into the job after an undisclosed reprimand stemming from a sexual harassment claim against him came to light.
