IT’S A VIOLATION, BUT HEY, THEY’RE IN THE DEMOCRAT MAJORITY
Four members of the House Democrat-led majority are in apparent violation of the law. Reps. Adam Wool, Ivy Spohnholz, Daniel Ortiz, and Tiffany Zulkosky are maintaining fundraising pages on their websites, which is against the law during the legislative session.
AS 24.60.031 says legislators and legislative staff may not solicit or accept contributions for a fundraising event during session for a campaign for state or municipal office. Soliciting includes, but is not limited to: Asking for contributions for the fundraising event; including your name on the fundraising notice; donating items to an auction.
During the legislative session, legislators are also prohibited from soliciting or accepting a contribution or a promise or pledge to make a contribution for their own campaigns, or to influence a state ballot proposition or question, or for a political party.
