ANCHORAGE - The Alaska state trooper at the heart of a legislative investigation into whether Gov. Sarah Palin abused her power said Tuesday he has not been contacted by the man overseeing the inquiry.
The Legislature is investigating whether Palin, the Republican candidate for vice president, fired former Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan because he would not dismiss Trooper Mike Wooten. Wooten went through a messy divorce from Palin's sister.
But nearly six months into the investigation, Wooten told The Associated Press that neither the Legislature's investigator nor Palin's attorney have contacted him.
If contacted, Wooten says he will cooperate. But he says he has no plans to contact the Legislature's investigator.
