Alaska GOP headquarters under lockdown, leadership meeting Monday night

Source: Alaska Dispatch

With the Alaska GOP set to meet Monday evening to decide the fate of party chairwoman Debbie Brown of Kasilof, she has seized the Republican headquarters in Anchorage and is threatening to arrest anyone who tries to enter the building.

"In order to protect the assets of the Alaska Republican Party, the office located at 1001 West Fireweed Lane in Anchorage has been temporarily closed and the locks changed," she said in an email sent to various Alaska Republicans early Monday. "No one is to enter the premises without permission from the State Chairman. Any unauthorized attempt to enter the premises will be met by the authorities."

The Alaska Republican Party's assets are at the moment rather limited. The headquarters building borders on being a dump, and most of the party funds have been transferred to the control of the Capital City Republicans in Juneau, the state capital, for safe keeping.

That was just before the party hierarchy ousted party chairman-elect Russ Millette, a Yellow Pages salesman, saying that he'd proven himself incompetent as a party fundraiser, the key job of the party Finance Chair, which Millette assumed before becoming party chairman.

22. This is in response to the Ron Paul/Libertarian wing of the republican party taking the state.

The RNC is flipping the FUCK out, because the socially liberal (Cough cough I know, socially liberal by RNC standards) wing of the party just took over.

All the Santorum/Gingrich/Romney socially conservative RNC members are losing their goddamn minds over it.

4. My favorite part of the article....

"In order to protect the assets of the Alaska Republican Party, the office located at 1001 West Fireweed Lane in Anchorage has been temporarily closed and the locks changed."

We don't want anyone to come into the building because of our "assets", but we'll save you the time of going to Google and looking up our address - here it is!

27. Alaska GOP drama results in chairwoman's ouster

Craig Medred
April 9, 2013

Locked out of the less-than-lavish headquarters of the Alaska Republican Party in a snowstorm, state leaders of the Grand Old Party adjourned to a comfortable, Midtown Anchorage office complex Monday evening and decided they’d had enough of the antics of party chairwoman Debbie Brown ...

First she tried to fire members of the party’s state executive committee. When they refused to go, she changed the locks on the party headquarters in Midtown Anchorage and left the state. When the executive committee called her up on charges of failure to meet her responsibilities as chair, she refused to appear.

Reports as to her whereabouts varied, but there seemed agreement she was still out of state, apparently on vacation or preparing for the Republican National Committee meeting in Hollywood, or both. Republican national committeeman Ralph Seekins from Fairbanks noted the RNC meeting starts Wednesday ...
