Citizens faith in some officials tanking

"U.S. Sen. Stevens said...he has no fear of a Democratic opponent in next year's election, and he blamed overzealous reporters for the continued interest in the federal investigation both he and his son have been caught up in." Anchorage Daily News front page. Poor Uncle Ted, his sky is falling and zealots are after him! I'm in complete wonderment as to why the Senator and his son aren't under investigation by the State of Alaska? There's rather "transparent" proof in court records, of poor judgment, absence of ethics, easy money changing hands, breaches of Constitutional Oath of Offices, resulting in individuals presently in prison. Convictions based on clear evidence, evidence that named more names, two of which are Ted and Ben Stevens.

Who else is involved in this VECO (CBC) scandal? I'm fairly sure the "bad apples" are few, but we need to know how many worms were involved. We can no longer trust "politics as usual" practiced in Alaska since Statehood. As voters we must take different directions for where, and with whom, we place our confidence as voters. "Corporate/Political" corruption involving VECO is not something new here. Their name, and kinds of trouble, visited Alaskans in years past, leaving dozens of unanswered questions then too.

The Governor did inquire, however, Ted's response was the equivalence of impatiently shushing the Governor. The lack of ethics in our representative system, from Washington, DC, to right here at home, is rising. Alaska's faith in those officials is tanking. The citizen's contract, our Constitution, has been compromised.

As our Governor, I ask Mrs. Palin to please initiate an investigation as to what malfeasance has occurred within Alaska's Congress and its Federal representation. The States' Attorney General, at the least, should look to VECO's orchestrations to rob Alaskans of the full measure and value of our resources and Citizen representation. Find out who are the "other" members of that Club, the Corrupt Bunch of Cowards. I think, Governor, those served "Justice" by the Feds, still have a serving of same coming from our State.
