RECALL effort against Republican Gov. Murkowski of Alaska!
The Alaskan recall effort to oust the Murkowski/Leman administration has officially begun. Visit the website at to see how the process is done in Alaska. This is a very serious recall effort that has just got off the ground!

Following public demonstrations of support for the recall action in Anchorage, Fairbanks and Kenai, they are now beginning the first stage of the campaign. This grassroots organization consists of statewide activists, ex-legislators and Alaskan citizens, who share the common goal of restoring accountability to the highest elected office in the state. The recall instrument sends a strong message that honesty and integrity is demanded from the administration doing Alaska's public business.

The recall volunteers have a successful track record working to support political campaigns and ballot initiatives throughout the state of Alaska. They have expert legal representation and are prepared to defend the recall action in court. The group has the depth and experience to successfully accomplish this recall effort.

With the support of Alaskans statewide, they can successfully recall the current administration. Dedicated Alaskans can restore integrity to the Governors office. If you would like more information or would like to offer your assistance and support, visit the website. I strongly believe that Alaskan citizens overwhelmingly support this effort. Alaskans to Recall Murkowski needs your help to make this happen!

This effort could really promote change on the last frontier... Check it out!

1. Uh...why?
I don't see anything on the site about why he should be recalled. If it is just revenge for California, then I doubt it will get anywhere.

2. The reasons are printed on the petition.
The petition document can be downloaded from the red "Print Petitions" button. There are as many reasons as you can give within the legal word limit of 150 or 200 words printed on the .pdf document.

Also, there are quite a few additional reasons, which include appointing his daughter to fill his Senate seat, after he was elected as Governor. That Senate election could decide the balance of power in Washington.

There's quite a stir in the statewide press and when the letters to the editor start flying, that'll give you a much clearer picture of the underlying dissatisfaction of the people who live under his rule. It's not a pretty picture. Even the Republicans are unhappy with his actions.
