This article just out from the Anchorage Daily News suggests that Alaska Senate hopeful Joe Miller should fit right in in the tradition of clean-government Alaska congressional representation.
Got busted for using government property as part of his plan to unseat the state GOP party chairman back in 2008 while he was part time city attorney for Fairbanks North Star Borough. There’s also something weird in the story about his using multiple staffers’ computers for whatever he was trying to do unseat the incumbent chair, though the folks who caught him don’t seem to have figured out just what he was up to. Later he was set to be fired for an as yet undisclosed reason but resigned a few hours in advance of getting canned. The mayor of the borough at the time now says Miller has been “less than honest” about what happened.
