This might interest some of the political types here. This is a transcript of a teleconference recently conducted by the new powers that be in the Alaska GOP. http://www.themudflats.net/2012/05/11/incoming-party-chair-republican-candidates-will-have-access-to-me-but-will-have-a-test/#.T7Kz5lKibyB "Discussed: A continuation of the disastrous Republican Convention which may be scheduled at the Anchorage Baptist Temple on June 9. Concern that Ron Paul supporters need to turn out again so there is a quorum The booing of Senator Lisa Murkowski at the Convention The orchestration of "the coup" The infamous "Mike Cook" email, if it was real, and who may have created it Primaries for those "masquerading as Republicans" Where are the financial statements/audits of the Republican Party? Republicans should need to "sign an agreement" about party values "Putting the heat" on Republicans who don’t vote "the way we want them to." Republicans will have access to Millette, but will "have a test." This is tantamount to an Alaska Independent Party takeover of the state's GOP. It's just one more reason to love living here. I'm sure my neighbor Norman Olson approves.
