At a conference in Anchorage last week, Congressman Don Young was asked his views on gun control, and Young offered them:
“How many millions of people were shot and killed because they were unarmed? Fifty million in Russia,” Young said. “How many Jews were put in the ovens because they were unarmed?”
The remarks were recorded as opposition research by Anchorage Democrat Dimitri Shein, who is running against Young. Dimitri gave his audio to a willing news reporter.
Alaska Public Media, with a slight side-glance at Young, decided to run with it as a story and used the opposition research audio in their story. The story and audio clip is here.
