Anchorage Assembly member Christopher Constant has accused Must Read Alaska publisher Suzanne Downing of trying to get the Assembly “killed.”
In a bizarre Twitter response on Wednesday, Constant replied to a criticism by a left-leaning commentator who was critical of a Must Read Alaska story detailing Dustin Darden’s arrest at the Tuesday Anchorage Assembly meeting.
“She’s literally trying to get us killed,” Constant wrote in his response. Literally.
The article in question focused on Assembly Chairman Felix Rivera’s double standard when enforcing rules of decorum in the Assembly meeting room.
The report on the incident involving Darden provided readers context for the Assembly’s liberal majority cracking down on conservative viewpoints and criticism.
The tweet sheds light on Constant’s continuing lack of self-awareness, extending beyond his behavior at Tuesday’s Assembly meeting, when he complained that the public was using his name in testimony and pointing.
On numerous occasions, Constant has shut down public testimony critical of his job performance or public policy positions, only to criticize the public sanctimoniously.
In June, he badgered a rabbi in Anchorage by asking him if he agreed that putting the homeless behind a fence would be a good final solution to the Anchorage problem of homelessness. He later apologized.
Now, Constant is accusing a citizen journalist of provoking murder. It’s not the first time he has singled out Downing. Years earlier, he called her the C-word on Facebook, apologizing a few days later after being criticized by women on Facebook.
