Alaska state Rep. Les Gara and Megan Stapleton — who is a former Sarah Palin staffer, now part of the McCain-Palin campaign’s publicity team and a member of the “Palin Truth Squad” — exchange heated words in these clips filmed in Anchorage after the “Troopergate” report was released Friday.

While some of Gara’s and Stapleton’s argument may be too Alaska-centric for outsiders to follow, the clips offer a glimpse into how the Troopergate investigation has stirred up local legislators, media and representatives from either side of the dispute.
