Sean Parnell is caught once again making a wacky appointment.

Shannyn Moore's ADN column today

<snip>

So why did Gov. Sean Parnell recently go all the way to Pennsylvania to fill a vacant Hearing Officer position in the labor department (you know, the department that promotes Alaska hire)?

<snip>

A little research shows that Mr. Pozonsky was Judge Pozonsky in Washington Co., Penn., for 14 years. He handled 60 to 70 percent of the criminal caseload for the entire county. That is he did until May of this year when the Pennsylvania Attorney General's office began investigating his conduct. He was stripped of his ability to preside over criminal cases. It appears Judge Pozonsky had somewhat bizarrely ordered the destruction of evidence in 17 criminal cases. (It's hard to appeal your case when the evidence disappears.)

Pennsylvania authorities apparently searched Judge Pozonsky's office and removed several boxes. According to press reports, a grand jury investigation of the judge has been ongoing since last fall.

The local paper reported in June that Judge Pozonsky went on vacation to Alaska and resigned when he returned home.

And why is there no real investigative journalism going on in this state? Why do we have to hear about these things in an opinion column?

1. I'm really glad Shannyn brought this to light.

 

This is just bizarre.

2. According to Shannyn on Facebook,

Pozonsky has resigned today for "personal reasons."
