December 31, 2007

US Senate candidate Ray Metcalfe has filed a second complaint with the Alaska Public Offices Commission (APOC) over state senator Lesil McGuire's work for Providence Health System.

US Senate candidate Ray Metcalfe has filed a second complaint with the Alaska Public Offices Commission over state senator Lesil McGuire's work for Providence Health System.

In the complaint, Metcalfe alleges that McGuire's consultant work in 2003 amounted to "lobbying and bribery."

The complaint says that McGuire said in a July 6, 2004 Anchorage Daily News article her job as to "review legal documents," but McGuire testified in an unrelated lawsuit that her job was to "review medical records."

A part of the complaint reads: These acts show a violation of the reporting requirements of AS 39.50 and 24.60.200 because these different descriptions cannot all be true and thus violate the requirement that statements be accurate, consistent and sufficient. In 2003, the period covered in the report under investigation, AS 24.60.200(a)(2) required a legislator to report receipt of income over $5,000 as compensation for personal services by providing the name and address of the source of income and a statement describing the nature of the services performed. If the source of income is known or reasonably should be known to have a substantial interest in legislative, administratrive or political action, and the recipient of the income is a legislator, the amount of income must also be disclosed.

Ray Metcalfe also asks APOC to refer the matter to the criminal division of the state Department of Law and the legislative ethics committee.

McGuire in the hot seat

McGuire was accused in November of threatening the wife of a former lobbyist, whose testimony helped convict McGuire's husband, Tom Anderson, on federal bribery charges.
