MONEY MADE SUING ALASKANS FOR UNPAID MEDICAL BILLS?
U.S. Sen. Dan Sullivan has been subjected to an unrelenting air-bombing campaign by Al Gross, who is running as the Democrats’ candidate for Senate. But finally, Sullivan’s side is punching back.
In a new ad aired by the National Republican Senatorial Committee, it’s revealed for the first time that Gross owns a sprawling home in Santa Barbara, where he also got a medical license to practice.
It’s not just any home. He has a luxury, $2.6 million home, the NRSC says, and by Alaska standards, it is a mansion.
It’s also a mansion by Santa Barbara standards, where the average home assessment is $509,000.
The NSRC was charitable in that it underestimated the house value by quite a bit — it’s assessed at over $3.1 million — but the message is clear: Gross is Richey Rich-level wealthy.
Gross makes over $100K in profit from the Santa Barbara house, which he currently rents out. His house in Anchorage is worth over $500,000.
Gross, who has attempted to portray himself as a camo-wearing, bear-killing, fish-slaying doctor, actually has quite a record for charging ungodly rates when he practiced in Juneau, where he spent 20 years doing surgery and where made his early millions. He’s attempted to make Sen. Sullivan look like an outsider, when it was Gross who left the state for several years to settle in California.
While making his millions off of Alaskans, Gross sued numerous Alaskans for unpaid bills for as little as $11. CourtView contains a long list of Alaskans who were sued by Gross
