Anchorage Assembly Rejects Election Investigation by Special Counsel


The Anchorage Assembly rejected a resolution on a 7-4 vote Tuesday night to appoint a special counsel to investigate irregularities and ballot shortages during last week's city elections.

Assembly members Paul Honeman, Elvi Gray-Jackson, Patrick Flynn and Harriet Drummond voted for the special counsel at Tuesday's meeting, while Assembly Chair Debbie Ossiander and members Bill Starr, Ernie Hall, Dick Traini, Adam Trombley and Jennifer Johnston voted no. Chris Birch voted no by phone.

In remarks before Tuesday's vote on the resolution, introduced by Gray-Jackson, Drummond told fellow Assembly members, "we are missing the boat" if the group refused to investigate the election -- a remark that drew cheers from the audience in the Assembly chambers. Members who voted against it, however, said they thought appointing special counsel before a Friday work session on the election would be premature.

This is what stealing an election looks like.

2. I've never seen such a clusterfuck

(pardon the expression). They'd better get this election business squared away before November. I don't have much hope that they will.

3. They were trying their best last night to sweep this

 

under the rug as fast as possible.

I thought it was very peculiar that they printed extra ballots but sent out less then normal amounts to the polling stations.
