Senate candidate's firm received more than $1 million from BP

State senate candidate reveals information in new filing.

By RICHARD MAUER Anchorage Daily News

After initially declining to disclose the clients and the fees they paid to his engineering firm, state Senate candidate Bob Bell on Wednesday released a list showing that oil giant BP was the largest client of Bell and Associates in 2011, paying over $1 million.And in an interview on the subject, Bell disclosed that when he served on the Anchorage

Assembly, he was offered engineering contracts and "a whole bunch of money" for his reelection campaign in 1996 if he would support the effort by oil-field contractor Veco and other companies to build a private prison in South Anchorage. Bell said he rejected the money and didn't support the prison but also said he didn't report the apparent bribe attempt to authorities.

In his filing Wednesday and in the interview, Bell didn't say exactly how much his company was paid by BP. The Alaska Public Offices Commission doesn't require disclosure of precise amounts, only ranges. In the case of income in the millions of dollars, a public official or candidate only has to say it's $1 million or more.

This how the oil corporations in Alaska keep tight control of our "elected" officials.


If you could spend a couple million to steal 2 BILLION a year that would be a great heist.
