I heard with my own ears The "Honorable" Senator Kookesh threaten, bribe the Craig/Sitka City Council. He received a slap on the wrist and has to write a letter of apology to the Craig Council for use of a poor choice of words which implied he would use his senatorial power to block funding for capital improvement projects for the City of Craig. Since the ethics findings Kookesh has already denied intent and claims his statements were "misconstrued".

So much for a letter of forced contriteness.I would like to suggest to The "Honorable" Senator Kookesh that he quit his "subsistence fishing" at city council meetings and stick to telling his racist duck hunting joke. It would probably go over better.
