This from Charles C. Johnson, a conservative blogger who sometimes gets things right, and often times doesn’t. Johnson is Mead Treadwell’s friend and stayed in his house last year. The visit resulted in an inflammatory, error-filled piece about rapist and murderer Jerry Active. One of the headlines read in Johnson’s piece read: “Dan Sullivan AK US Senate child molester coddler.”
In 2006, when then-Gov. Frank Murkowski was running against Sarah Palin in the primary, one of his campaign volunteers was grazed by a bullet in a drive-by while sign waving on Northern Lights. During that same campaign, a Palin supporter whacked an Alaska GOP official on the head with a sign. Now this. A harbinger of things to come for the “No” vote? Another harbinger of things to come? The bumper sticker of the day: This from Colleen Cox, who worked in Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell office as his communications person. She has been mum on why she left the office in early July. His chief of staff Michelle Toohey also left at the same time. Toohey has said that she’s voting for Treadwell: Headline from MSNBC: In Alaska, will reproductive rights make the difference? Answer: Yes.
Word is that Mark Begich and Mead Treadwell bumped into each other at lunch at the Lucky Wishbone.
