Anchorage's disenfranchisement of voters was undoubtedly the biggest election scandal so far in 2012. Mel Green (below in the black hoodie) of the gay website bentalaska.com covered the irregularities like an indefatigable pit bull, abetted by the efforts of Linda Kellen Biegel of Mudflats.net.
Below is part three of their interview, televised recently on Alaska Commons.
|Jim Minnery, of the Alaska Family Council|
and of anti-LGBT group Protect Your Rights.
Minnery wrote an email blast/facebook
post telling people they could register and
vote on election day, even in precincts in
which they didn't live. Later he said he was
real sorry about that and blamed a city clerk's
office underling whom he couldn't name for
the bad info. What he didn't say was that
less than 45 days earlier, in another email
blast, he told voters to be sure to register
30 days in advance of the election (which
was true). Deceit may run in the Minnery
family — here's Jim's cousin Tom Minnery,
trying to fool Minnesota Senator Al Franken.
