The Alaska Human Rights Commission board met, discussed, but did not decide on whether Executive Director Marti Buscaglia should keep her job.
The commission is set to meet again, perhaps as early as Friday, but no public notification has been made of the meeting. Monday’s meeting was an executive session to determine if the executive director can be salvaged, or if by allowing Buscaglia to keep her job, the entire organization would be compromised.
Buscaglia is in hot water because she in writing ordered an citizen to move his vehicle from the parking lot of the building where the Human Rights Commission is located in downtown Anchorage; Buscaglia gave him that order because the truck’s decal supporting the Second Amendment was offensive to her.
Her misdeed was compounded by the fact that she used her official business card, with the seal of the State of Alaska, to deliver the message on the man’s windshield, and then used the official Facebook page of the Commission to publicly deride the truck owner.
Gov. Michael Dunleavy called for an investigation led by the Department of Law, which led to a report given to the commission in advance of its Monday meeting.
The agency has not a posted meeting notice for further meetings this week.
