Alaska Politics Blog

This is the place to talk about Alaska politics, state, local, national. Public life in the Last Frontier has rarely been more interesting -- a full slate of federal and state elections, the influence of former Gov. Sarah Palin, the usual hardball Alaska politics.

Wayne Anthony Ross denies making statement (Updated)

Update: Lawmakers voted 35-23 to not confirm Ross.

From Sean Cockerham in Juneau -

Attorney general nominee Wayne Anthony Ross is circulating a letter among legislators saying "I have been advised that there is now a rumor circulating that I have advocated or implied that the law should be ignored when the Senate takes up the issue of approving the governor's appointment to fill the vacant Senate seat for Juneau. ...That rumor is totally false."

At issue is something Ross told me yesterday. His exact quote was that "it seems to me the most important thing that can be done by the Senate is not argue with legal or illegal but to appoint somebody to represent Juneau."

Here's a recording of what he said:

(The comment was also recorded by the Alaska Public Radio Network, in better sound quality.)

Here is the letter he is circulating among legislators.

The House and Senate are scheduled to go into joint session for various confirmation votes, including the one on Ross, at 11 a.m. You can listen or watch live on Gavel to Gavel. (GCI cable Channel 15).
