Excellent piece by Shannyn Moore re Alaska and the Voting Rights Act...please read this.
We really are under siege here.
The results of our last election (which gave the Republicans supermajorities in both houses) are questionable because the State Supreme Court had ruled against the Redistricting Board twice. A legal plan was not in place. The election went forward anyway because there wasn't enough time to present another plan, but basically I see this legislature as illegitimate. Nevertheless, they're going full-on ALEC on us, just bombarding us with every crazy bill they can come up with. And to top it off, as I've been talking about here, my representative who has been elected as a Democrat since 2006, switched parties after the election and before being sworn in. I'm on the recall committee. She's avoiding her constituents like the plague.
