Republican vice-presidential hopeful Sarah Palin will take a three-hour break from the campaign trail Friday to give a deposition on her role in the firing of an Alaska public safety official, the Associated Press reported today.

The Alaska Personnel Board is conducting the investigation, led by an independent counsel.

It will be the first deposition of the Alaska governor, but the second inquiry into the matter. The first investigation by the Alaska state legislature found that Palin abused her power in her efforts to get her former brother-in-law, a state trooper, fired.

Palin was not subpoenaed in the first probe, although her husband, Todd, gave an affidavit. Todd Palin is also expected to give a deposition Friday.

The Palins’ attorney told the AP that the couple will offer depositions Friday afternoon, outside of Alaska, but at an undisclosed site. Palin’s Friday schedule has not been released by the campaign.
