Joe Miller violates FEC Regulations – FEC Complaint filed today

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                 Monday, November 1, 2010
 
Anchorage, Alaska: A complaint about the Joe Miller campaign has been filed with the Federal Election Commission by registered Republican Andrée McLeod.  It addresses Miller’s flying around Alaska on private aircraft for his campaign and paying only for fuel, which is a clear violation of FEC regulations. 
 
“For an attorney with a law degree from Yale who claims to have mastered the law in less than three years, Joe Miller has shown a consistent pattern of cutting legal corners,” McLeod said.
 
US Senate candidates flying on private aircraft in connection with campaign activities must pay the equivalent charter rate for the type of airplane used.  Miller has been flying on a plane owned by Fairbanks lawyer Tom Wickwire.  But, According to Miller’s July FEC report, although he flew at least three times on Wickwire’s plane, Miller only paid for the fuel and not the full charter price for comparable trips. 
 
“If Miller’s actions these last few weeks are any indication of the types of changes he plans on taking to Washington DC, we’re in a whirlwind of trouble,” McLeod said. “When you also consider that Miller was several months late in filing his financial disclosures, it becomes crystal clear that he follows too closely in the footsteps of his political patron, Sarah Palin, who has said that she will do whatever she wants until a judge tells her she can’t.”

    How come no one is investigating this: from Joe Miller: Days before he was caught using the borough computers for the poll, Miller had spoken openly with members of the borough office about a potential threat coming his way. The Alaska Republican Party was out to get him, Miller told them, and he warned them to be careful about what they did on their computers. Miller claimed a public records request was in the works aimed at scrutinizing employees’ computer use, adding that, if granted, he feared it might reveal child pornography on his computer. If any inappropriate material was found on his computer, Miller told them, they needed to know it would be the result of a sophisticated setup — someone hacking the Fairbanks North Star Borough’s computer system and planting inappropriate material on his computer.
    The police need to check his computer……he is either trying to cover his tracks on his porn or he is very devious…..planning some crazy strategy so when he uses his colleagues’ computers without their knowledge, he can feign concern over this plot and maybe………I give up….he could just be crazy….because I can’t come up with a reasonable rationale for his bizarre behavior…………he just cannot be the one to represent alaska and lookout for alaska’s interest in DC.
