Anchorage police spokesman Lt. Dave Parker said Friday he’s retiring at the end of the year. “I put in my papers today,” he said.
Parker is an ordained preacher and, unlike spokespeople at many police departments, a badge-carrying cop. His last day will be Dec. 31.
Well isn't that interesting?
As many of you might know Parker was the gentleman who very quickly denied the National Enquirer's story of a link between Todd Palin and Shailey Tripp, as well as his involvement with her arrest for prostitution. At teh behest of the Palin's attorney by the way.
However later we learned that he had not exactly been completely honest in his statements.
It should be noted, though I have no evidence of any connections as of yet, that Governor Parnell's sex trafficking task force is currently hearing testimony about how wide speared the problem is in Alaska.
Probably not connected, but I will say that it is interesting timing in that I am pretty sure Officer Parker has some information about that troubling situation that the task force might be very interested in hearing about.
