Alaska Crooks Will Face The Music
By John Finley
Former Alaska Attorney General John Havelock's Anchorage Daily News' September 26th "Comment" is a must read if your thinking the legal problems of the crooks selling off Alaska's resourses will just blow over. It's the straight story about the long hoped for cleaning of our political system.
The good news is 70 Federal agents on the case and indictments in 07'. My only fear is we'll end up burning a few very important people who richly deserve it, but lose our own battle during the excitment.
I am still not allowed to fish rockfish in the Gulf of Alaska, and you aren't either. Why is that? Those who feel they don't yet understand the situation should assemble the few simple facts that it takes to answer that question. The masterplan of the cartels would begin to emerge from the fog. They're going to steal the GOA just like they did Bering Sea, if we let them.
On another note, having failed to shame several leading citizens into a write-in run for Kodiak's House seat I'm forced to contemplate the choice we're left with.
No one knows how bad Rep. Gabrielle Ledoux was unless they were one of the fisheries activists that worked for a year to turn her against SB 113. SB 113 was Sen. Ben Stevens' plan to gut the State Constitution in terms of fishing rights. She snubbed us fishermen all the way and then had the gall to claim credit for defeating the Bill in a campaign speech last month.
Gabrielle just vibrates with whoever is presumed to be important and winning. She rode into office on the Asian-Latino voting block in the last election. Those people voted for me when I ran years ago and my politics haven't changed. To them I would say that she took your vote and forgot about you. Don't be fooled again. Vote for Dan Ogg.
And look at Tony Knowles, climbing up in the pols by smearing Palin as anti-native on subsistence. Tony's sins as governor, too numerous to count, were color blind, injuring all Alaskans equally by favoring corporations over people. Please, whoever you are up there, let Sarah Palin be our next Governor. Please.
All The Best
