Some are suggesting the fix may be when it comes to the Alaska Supreme Court’s decision on the Recall Dunleavy effort now waiting to be heard by the court. From all appearances, they may be right. The court, without even hearing the first argument going to the heart of the case, lifted a lower court’s […]

Lying on two counts
