Save Anchorage, Must Read Alaska and the plot to overthrow the mayor

For most Anchorage residents, the scandal that ultimately took down the city’s mayor began a week ago last Friday when local TV anchor Maria Athens posted a bizarre Facebook promo for an expose on that night’s broadcast that promised to prove Mayor Ethan Berkowitz had been posting nude photos of himself on a website meant for underaged girls.

A curious many surely tuned in to KTBY Channel 4 that night to watch this salacious enterprise piece, but were treated to no such thing, as in the hours between the promo and the broadcast, the story was spiked by station management, and Athens was arrested after allegedly assaulting the same station manager — who also happened to be her fiance — as well as a police officer. Also in that time, the FBI and Anchorage Police Department announced there was no validity whatsoever to Athens’ claims of crimes against a minor.

Before she was hauled away to jail and then the Alaska Psychiatric Institute over that weekend, Athens tweeted out a photo of what appeared to be the bare ass of Berkowitz taken in his own bathroom.

The following Monday, Berkowitz admitted to an ‘inappropriate texting relationship’ with Athens, was shortly thereafter rebuked by the Anchorage Assembly for his admitted behavior and prior to the start of Tuesday’s regular Assembly meeting, the mayor’s chief of staff read a short letter announcing the mayor would be resigning his office 10 days hence.
