The election to the Senate in Alaska is still unsettled because some 80,000 write-in ballots and 31,000 absentee ballots, many of which are military votes, are still to be counted. It’s a neck-to-neck race between Republican nominee Joe Miller and sore loser RINO Lisa Murkowski who had lost the GOP primary but insisted on staying in the race as a spoiler write-in candidate.
Now, there is video evidence, aired by FoxNews’ Huckabee, of a federal government contractor at an Alaskan airbase openly urging his employees to write in Murkowski’s name in order to protect funding for their jobs. The contractor even provided cards for the employees to take with them to the polls.
What this government contractor did is against the law. Federal law prohibits electioneering.
Furthermore, the Miller campaign discovered that Demonrat VP Joe Biden is a good friend of ostensibly Republican Lisa Murkowski. In an interview with the Associated Press, Murkowski bragged that Biden had called and congratualted her. In other words, she is not a true Republican, even less a Conservative. Murkowski instead is a member of the bi-partisan self-designated Political Ruling Class who care about their own interests but have only disdain for We, the “little” People.
Murkowski is a reminder of Thomas Jefferson’s warning to us down the ages:
“If once they [the people] become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress, and Assemblies, Judges, and Governors, shall all become wolves.” -Thomas Jefferson, letter to Edward Carrington, 1787.
Murkowski has friends in high places in DC and Alaska. Her father, Frank Murkowki, was the state’s Senator for 20 years (1982-2002) and its Governor from 2002 to 2006. Lisa’s tentacles evidently extend into Alaska state government because last Friday, the Division of Elections began validating absentee ballots without notifying the Miller campaign. This directly conflicts with the state’s Election Observers’ Handbook that states the Division of Elections must “notify” the campaign “24 hours in advance of the time of ballot review….”
Not only did the Division of Elections not give a 24-hour advance notice, it never even notified Joe Miller, who learned about this from an Alaska Republican Party official on Friday morning after the validation process had already begun. Given that, there is every reason for Joe Miller to wonder about the integrity of the voting and vote-counting process in Alaska.
Joe Miller is appealing to us to help him ensure a fair vote count in Alaska. Please click here to donate!
