More WikiLeaks about Alaska DNC, Mayor Berkowitz

Some enterprising researchers found the following documents at WikiLeaks.

Below, Jake Hamburg, communication director for the Alaska Democrats, reassures the DNC that the party has sent the DNC a lot of intelligence on the Bernie Sanders movement here in Alaska. This in spite of the glaring fact that 82 percent of Democrats in Alaska voted for Bernie. Is the Alaska Democratic Party following the direction of its members or bowing to the national committee’s rigging of the nomination for Hillary Clinton?

Among others passing along deep research to the National DNC was Kay Brown, executive director of the Alaska Democratic Party, here referencing the help she’s received from Hal Gazaway, the chair of District 19 Democrats. Gazaway, readers will recall, ran for state House in 2012, but withdrew from the rase after winning the primary.

Another gem is a note from Debbie Wasserman Schultz herself, ([email protected]) in which she delights in the fact that the mayor of Anchorage is Jewish, and acknowledges that Schawna Thoma, who works for Northern Compass Group (Begich), gets her marching orders from the senator himself.

We presume that’s not Senator Sullivan. Northern Compass Group is described as “a full-service consulting firm that helps clients develop tailored, strategic plans to achieve sustainable solutions for even the most daunting challenges. Our team’s diverse expertise in business, government, and politics delivers results that will last. Using proven strategies driven by the Begich approach of bringing stakeholders together, we are committed to creating a realistic road map that gets our clients where they want to go.”

Nearly all the staff members of Northern Compass Group are former staffers for the senator, who was bumped out of office in 2014.

More organizing with local Democrats, including Assemblywoman Jackson, and once again a reference about Shawna Thoma getting her marching orders from the “senator.”

Duly Noted: Elvi Gray Jackson says she’s “from Jersey and won’t be bullied and doesn’t want to have to curse anybody out.”
