Recall Dunleavy group moves to ‘sign at home’

bronsonformayor

In a desperate effort to restart their attempt to remove the governor of Alaska in the middle of an international emergency, the Recall Dunleavy Committee has moved to a “sign at home” method of getting signatures for recalling Gov. Mike Dunleavy.

Earlier this week, under pressure from their own supporters, the Recall Dunleavy Committee stopped all public signature gathering by their paid petition carriers, such as this man spotted at the Midtown Mall in recent days.

“All registered Alaska voters may now request a personal household Recall petition booklet by mail,” the committee wrote.

To comply with the law, but the Recall committee says people may instead self-certify “under penalty” their signatures before turning them in. Those books, no doubt, will come under greater scrutiny.

They’ll also cost the recall group money. The Division of Elections produced, at public expense, 1,200 booklets for the initial effort to recall the governor, and these additional booklets will have to be paid for by the Recall Dunleavy Committee.

Some people who are opposed to the recall have noted to Must Read Alaska that they will be requesting the personal household booklets.

  • Those people who want to recall the Governor got to be the most brainwashed bunch of idiots in this state.

    • No common sense and full of hate. These signatures need to be extremly scrutinized they have already broken Alaska Statutes by collecting signatures out of state. Which some will argue that’s not true but play on words.

  • Alaskans have traditionally pulled together in time of crisis. These are not Alaskans; they are puppets being directed by Outside interests seeking chaos. They have flaunted the law and want the Alaska Courts to enable their malfeasance. We will see whose side the courts are on when they have to rule on whether paying by the signature and gathering signatures outside of the state are legal.

    Credibility of the Alaska Court System has been compromised.

    • Amen

  • Why are these people wasting such a valuable resource when toilet paper is in such short supply?

  • Order the booklet!!

    Then toss it in the trash. Tell them it never arrived and get more. To hell with these “people”.

  • We could get nuked by China and these sad sacks would still be trying to recall. Poor excuse for humans.

  • Political movements such as this outside funded recall effort may actually benefit from current Government ordered restrictions, especially if the virus is largely contained. Look for this group of Bolschviks to begin labeling Dunleavy a tyrannical despot using this crisis to tamp down their efforts.

  • If anything vindicates the ‘slash and burn’ Dunleavy cuts that sparked the recall, seems like the combination of no oil revenues and cratering the private sector economy at the same time would be it…..

  • To my recall-advocating neighbors, it seems “Draconian, unnecessary, and stupid” cuts were inevitable with our current situation…..and were probably just the beginning now of further cuts. As our economy will soon be a shell of what it has been, keep advocating for that bloat though. Operating in the red will soon turn crimson, and worse.

  • Their efforts, like the pandemic, has neared its peak and will soon fade away. The low price of oil may take longer to recover.
