JUNEAU - Former Attorney General Talis Colberg resigned last week. "I determined that it was in the best interest of the State of Alaska to move on and pursue other opportunities," Colberg said in a statement issued by Gov. Sarah Palin's office. Colberg, who previously operated a private law practice in Palmer, near Palin's hometown of Wasilla, was picked to become the state's attorney general when Palin took office in 2006. Two weeks ago, Colberg faced hostile questioning from members of the House Judiciary Committee. The committee said they suspected Colberg had urged state witnesses to disregard legislative subpoenas during Troopergate, the investigation of Palin's firing of former Commissioner of Public Safety Walt Monegan.
