Truth is in Begich's own words

Your front page article (Clarion, March 5) is revealing about Sen. Mark Begich, typical of AP reporting, and more of a political ad than news. Will the AP also report on pro Begich PAC ads including the two anonymous “fact check organizations”? I do hope people are smart enough to realize PAC ads (on both sides) frequently stretch the truth.

The true kernel of the article is Begich’s own admission he did not agree with everything in the Senate letter. What kind of a man signs a letter he doesn’t agree with? Perhaps he needs to retake Ethics 101. Is it also situational ethics to criticize the right wing Koch PAC while at the same time being a recipient of extreme left wing Soros PAC money?

One last point. There certainly is room to criticize the closure of the North Pole refinery owned by Koch Industries and the impact on Alaska, but the Begich position on climate change mirrors Obama’s to eliminate coal usage. Perhaps Begich doesn’t realize the huge coal reserves Alaska has. Talk about turning your back on Alaska.
