Palins' depositions set for Friday

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- Gov. Sarah Palin and her husband are scheduled to give dispositions Friday in a second investigation into whether she violated Alaska ethics law by firing the state's top public safety official.

Attorney Thomas Van Flein, who is representing both Sarah and Todd Palin, said the depositions will take place outside the state but declined to say where.

The governor is on the campaign trail as Republican John McCain's running mate. Campaign officials have not yet released her Friday schedule.

The three-hour interviews are part of an investigation by the Alaska Personnel Board, which has hired independent counsel Timothy Petumenos. He did not immediately return a call left at his Anchorage office.
