POOP, TEA PARTY, TROLLS
If Alaska Public Offices Commission filings are any indication, the Anchorage Municipal election in April is going to be, well, weird.
An independent expenditure “group” has filed with APOC under the name: “Everyone Poops and We Can Prove It!” It appears to be in opposition to a ballot initiative that is asking Anchorage voters whether men’s and women’s public bathrooms and locker rooms should be generally separate, as they have always been since the beginning of public bathrooms.
Oliva appears to also be the creative genius behind a second registered campaign entity: Alaska Tea Party Watch / ???
The entity’s abbreviation is: ???. As in three cups of tea.
The purpose of the group is: “We pay protesters and internet trolls to annoy important people and make others laugh at them. Basically we elevate the dialogue, man.”
His title at Alaska Tea Party Watch is “Captain Paul and Troller in Chief.”
Oliva lists his address on “Potlach Circle” in Anchorage for both independent expenditure groups. (And yes, he spelled the name of the street wrong.)
Other than that, and the fact that this will be the first municipal election in Alaska to be conducted entirely by mail, the election season appears to be shaping up normally.
