Corrupt Bastards Rise Again! Shannyn Moore "Legislators' conflict-of-interest standards are a joke

Just as Alec took over in Wisconsin, the Governor of Alaska Sean Parnell (who replaced Palin) formerly worked for EXXON in the Valdez spill AGAINST the people of Alaska, then went on to become chief lobbyist for Conoco Phillips, snuck in office under Palin, praising her hike in oil taxes ACES, then as soon as she was out (was he involved?) he reversed his position and started openly working for Conoco attempting to eliminate the new oil tax.

Now, with redistricting (that was found illegal in court but it was too late to change ) Republicans took over the entire government with the most over corrupt conflict of interest politicians ever, and they don't even see the problem. Alaska needs help, please give this a kick and a rec before they give away the entire state treasury...


A silent coup has occurred in Alaska. "More foxes in the henhouse than chickens," as someone said.

The oil tax giveaway proposed by former Conoco Phillips lobbyist and Exxon attorney Sean Parnell has been referred to the TAPS Throughput Committee chaired by Conoco Phillips employee Sen. Peter Micciche, in front of Senate Resources co-chair Cathy Giessel, whose husband's job relies on the oil industry, and later to the uber-powerful Senate Finance Committee co-chaired by Conoco Phillips employee Kevin Meyer.

Newly elected Sen. Micciche, a Republican from Soldotna, occupies some pretty lofty positions in Juneau. The Resource Committee is one of the most powerful in the Senate and not only is he a member, he's co-chairman of the special subcommittee reviewing the bill to slash oil taxes.

Micciche has worked for Conoco Phillips for more than two decades. He's run the LNG plant on the Peninsula for years. As reported by Richard Mauer in the Daily News this week, Micciche is paid between $100,000 and $200,000 a year and owns an undisclosed amount of stock in his company.

Micciche told Mauer he doesn't believe he has a conflict of interest under the Legislative Ethics Act.
