Why is Sarah Palin's Husband Todd Refusing to Testify in the Alaska Ethics Probe?

19 September 2008 at 9:11:12 AM

Gee. Sarah Palin was all for an ethics probe.... Until one actually started to happen.

As Slog says, are Subpoenas now RSVPs? Because Todd Palin didn't like the subpoena.

Ed O’Callaghan, a spokesman for the McCain-Palin campaign here, said that Mr. Palin would not testify and that he had filed “objections to the validity of the subpoena” with the independent investigator leading the inquiry for the Legislature, Stephen E. Branchflower, a former Anchorage prosecutor.

Dan Savage says

So do we all get to make are own judgment calls about subpoenas now? Are they, in the wake of Bush administration, merely invitations for testimony and/or evidence, and is honoring a subpoena entirely left to the discretion of the person served with the subpoena? Do subpoenas come with RSVP cards now? If I were to be served with a subpoena could I just shrug and say, "Hey, I have objections to the validity of this here subpoena!" and get away with it?
