According to the Associated Press, 39 former Alaska employees (biologists and supervisors) wrote a letter to the Governor Sean Parnell and Commissioner Denby Lloyd, that the man whose references were Sarah Palin’s parents is unqualified for the position.

Corey Rossi was the state’s assistant commissioner for abundance manager, but was given the job of wildlife director for the Division of Wildlife Conservation sometime during the week of March 15th.

The Associated Press was able to obtain Rossi’s Resume and reports that it does state that Rossi has 30 semester hours in zoology, botany and biology from six different universities.

Rossi employed Palin’s parents. Their job involved trapping and killing birds at airports, rats and foxes.
