The lies that led to violence on Jan. 6 are continuing to fuel far-right efforts to “reform” Alaska’s elections and “place trust back into the election process.” If they were serious about truly restoring faith in the elections, they’d take a good hard look in the mirror. But, of course, they’re not.
Cases are up but testing is way, way down.
But don’t worry, an account from a not-exactly-truthful press office says everything’s fine and that “Anchorage’s water supply remains safe for public consumption.”
There’s reason to take the latest allegations with a grain of salt but also reason to worry there might be one more fire contributing to all the smoke coming from city hall.
It’s largely a masterclass in manipulation: I’m letting you in on a secret; They are not telling you the truth; We’re just pursuing the Truth.
With reports of rising harassment, threats and physical attacks on health care workers fueled by the very conspiracy theories Bronson has repeated and legitimized with his office in recent weeks, he now claims there’s some very fine people on both sides.
Dunbar’s campaign had asked for expedited consideration of the complaints ahead of the election, but Bronson’s campaign promised to quickly fix the problems. They didn’t.
The Bronson administration and its allies have been using the hearings to rile up anti-mask and anti-science testimony over the course of the last two weeks.
Its’ becoming increasingly clear that the plan is to make the job of serving the public so difficult and hostile that it’ll drive away anyone not ready to rubberstamp Bronson’s agenda.
The outrage and anger targeting the Anchorage Assembly—who Bronson sees as his primary political opponents—is far too valuable.
