  1. Back in the day, Fischer was called the VECO senator by Sen. Al Adams. Of course, it was Adams himself who was
    personally dipping deep into the state’s purse strings and gaining $$$ from cronies while House Finance Chair. That’s how Adams could afford multiple luxury homes. Democrats are crooks and phonies.

  2. I was an administrative secretary for Paul back in the day. He was a wonderful man that loved the State of Alaska.
