The Republican-dominated panel overseeing the Trooper-Gate probe just voted unanimously to release the report by its independent investigator.

Here’s the report (.pdf).

The report finds that Gov. Sarah Palin “abused her power” in violation of Alaska law. That’s the key finding. It also finds that while the refusal to fire Palin’s former brother in law was not the sole reason Palin terminated her public safety commissioner, Walt Monegan, it was a “contributing factor.”
