Hmmm. Last we checked, Alaska Senate candidate Joe Miller was saying he was required by the local middle school to bring a security detail to the school for his event. But now it turns out they say that’s not true, they didn’t require him to bring a security detail. And at least two of the ‘security’ guards Miller brought with him (and who detained one journalist and threatened to detain two others) were active duty members of the military — apparently moonlighting without permission from their superiors.
Given that Miller yesterday said we should look to the example of the former East Germany as a model of effective border security, I feel like we’re starting to get a clearer picture of what Miller’s all about.
