Bethel Mayor Mark Springer has been getting nasty on his perceived opponents: Springer has been dropping F-bombs all over Twitter. And not just recently — he has been doing this since long before he was elected mayor.
The Facebook group, Reclaim Midtown, a politically conservative Anchorage account, collected a set of them and posted them with a question about whether the City of Bethel has a social media policy that applies to its mayor. But the group said they stopped counting at 47 instances of Springer using the F word in some context on Twitter.
The city does have a social media policy as it pertains to the official Facebook Page of the City of Bethel, at least. Whether there is another policy that would apply to employees of the city is another matter. Springer is using his own Twitter account, while identifying himself as the mayor of Bethel. And mayors have the ability to say what they want, if the Left approves.
Springer is a former Bethel City Council member and former member of the Alaska Marijuana Control Board.
