(Newser) – Some 1,000 protesters chanting “recall Palin!” turned out in force in Anchorage yesterday to object to the state’s handling of Troopergate, reports the Anchorage Daily News. Demonstrators called for the attorney general's resignation and urged legislators to issue a report on the probe into Sarah Palin's alleged abuse of power before the presidential election.

"This report needs to be released. Not just for us—it needs to be released for all those people in the Lower 48 who are going to make a decision on Nov. 4," a Democratic blogger told protesters. Demonstrators at the "Hold Palin Accountable" rally held aloft banners reading: "Steady on her heels, wobbly on her words " and "Tina Fey would do a better job." The McCain-Palin camp couldn't be reached for comment.
