Will Alaska look like a basket-case?

Not satisfied with having a representative like the loony Sarah McSame they now have a senator found guilty of seven felony counts of lying on his Senate financial disclosure reports by not revealing gifts and services totalling over $250,000.

This is a tough time for Alaskan Republican voters – do they vote Republican and thus enhance their wacky image of corrupt politicians or stay at home or vote Democrat/third party to send a message to their party that wish to redeem the image of their state that is fast becoming a laughing stock.

It is particularly important as the population is only the same as two Manchester boroughs. Could you imagine what the British papers would be saying if the leaders of them both were deemed to have abused their powers or indicted on felony charges?

Will the Alaskans vote for change?

  1. “Could you imagine what the British papers would be saying if the leaders of them both were deemed to have abused their powers or indicted on felony charges?”

    Don’t need to imagine. Google “Donnygate” and you’ll find how little interest the national press took when 21 former councillors including two former leaders were convicted of fraud.

    Given that even after 3 pretty disastrous elections for Labour nationally Labour have 27 of the 63 councillors in Doncaster the electoral fallout doesn’t seem to massive either.
