You might title this “while you’re at it.” Since the authorities are in the indictment mode cleaning house (VECO and the legislators) they should not stop after they get the kitchen mucked out. Clean the basement. Clean the bedrooms. Clean the living room. Clean up the Alaska Board of Fish.
An obvious example is in the most recent Anchorage Assembly election: a certain candidate bragged about using his position, a public process, and state funds to allocate fish to his constituents. He not only did this in television ads last month, he did it the last time he ran, as well. Face it, the guy is a lawyer; not a genius.
Where is APOC or the AG or the Ombudsman? Aren’t those same ads a blatant example of a government appointee using a government agency and government funds for their own personal gain? Isn’t this tantamount to evidence? Presently the AG’s office is receiving ethics complaints about a related topic; an ethical concern about the board of fish and board member(s). In this limited format detail and overview suffer, however, I encourage comprehensive spring cleaning by the authorities while they have a head of steam up.
