Last night’s Anchorage Assembly meeting was full of drama, the high point of which was the confrontation between former Democratic State House candidate Greg Jones and Assemblywoman Amy Demboski. Jones took exception to Ms. Demboski’s posting of a FoxBuiness video linking an organization he is involved with to an alleged armed Islamic compound in Alaska.
