Murkowski campaign kidding voters as far as job security

Posted: Wednesday, July 28, 2004

Who's kidding who?

So Americans for Job Security is once again trying to knock Tony Knowles' jobs record on behalf of Lisa Murkowski. Interestingly enough, I read an article in the the July 16 paper about young people working on both Sen. Murkowski's and former Gov. Knowles' campaigns this summer.

Apparently, the Alaska Democratic Party is employing 27 young Alaskans to go door-to-door on behalf of Tony Knowles. Sen. Murkowski employs a mere seven. That's nearly three times fewer than ADP. While I found that to be interesting, what struck me hardest was the quote from Murkowski spokesman Elliot Bundy, who said the Murkowski campaign employed these youths because of their "willingness to work for very little pay"? That really stinks!

To Cindy Norquest, who is featured in these ads: Are these the types of people you want employing your children?
