Lawmakers vote for subpoenas for Troopergate probe

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- Alaska lawmakers have voted to subpoena 13 witnesses, including Gov. Sarah Palin's husband, Todd. It's part of the investigation into whether the Republican vice presidential candidate abused her power in trying to get her former brother-in-law fired.

Said retired prosecutor Stephen Branchflower of Todd Palin: "He's such a central figure. ... I think one should be issued for him."

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted 3-2 for the subpoenas.

Branchflower said he wants to interview Palin herself, but did not ask for a subpoena for her.
