This is the second mailer paid for by the Alaska Republican Party (ARP) in the last week attempting to tie the circumstances surrounding Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senate Joe Miller’s departure from the Fairbanks North Star Borough in 2008 to the scandal surrounding Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server to store emails while she was Secretary of State.
This is a rarity, normally when we score political attacks, one side is clearly the attacker and one side clearly the target. In this case, we have more of an exchange of fire as the Alaska Republican Party and Libertarian candidate for US Senate, Joe Miller traded similar â€œfinancial irregularityâ€ charges against one another. Deciding who actually came out the winner might be more complicated to sort out.
This afternoon on her daily radio show on 1020 FM KVNT Anchorage Assemblywoman Amy Demboski said Alaska Republican Party Vice-Chairman Rick Whitbeck called her last night and threatened her over her voicing support for Alaska Libertarian Party senatorial candidate Joe Miller over the Alaska Republican Party’s candidate Sen. Lisa Murkowski.
After days of attacks by the Alaska Republican Party and state legislature majority members on the Alaska Division of Elections (DOE) over voting irregularities in the August 16 state primary election, the Alaska Democratic Party has sent their own letter to DOE Director Josie Bahnke claiming to â€œdebunkâ€ Republican talking points.
