Which Person Do YOU Think Is Being Truthful? UPDATED & UPDATED AGAIN! - Bev Wooley Speaks.

Today, the Anchorage Daily News has a short article noting that two of Alaska's top health officials are leaving their jobs.

Alaska's Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Jay Butler (he left Health and Social Services on June 22) and Public Health Division Director Bev Wooley.

I don't know why either of them left their jobs, but in the case of Wooley, something just doesn't smell right here.

Last week Wooley emailed her staff, noting that she was leaving "per Governor Palin's request."

But Sharon Leighow, the Governor's spokesperson, denied that. She said the governor was NOT involved in Wooley's departure.

Huh. Methinks that someone's not telling the truth here.

Based on our past experience with Governor Sarahcakes, which one do YOU think it is?

Me too.

Wish I knew the real story.

UPDATE:

An alert commenter pointed out that there's more to this story, and it can be found at the Juneau Empire:
... Wooley's departure may have been related to conflicts between Palin's anti-abortion views and state health staff's reluctance to present medical information they believed was inaccurate about a bill requiring parental consent for abortion.
Pretty much says it all, doesn't it?

Remember When Sarahcuda was Mayor of Wasilla, and she wanted to fire the librarian who thought banning books was a bad idea?

Yep, it's a Palin "loyalty" issue.

UPDATE 2: WOOLEY SPEAKS!

Well, the ADN now has an article telling us what was already surmised: another Palin "loyalty" casualty.
