Juneau’s Muñoz should resign from Legislature

It may be time for Juneau Republican Rep. Cathy Muñoz to consider resigning – for poor judgment if nothing else. For the second time, she has written a letter – one of them on official legislative stationery, no less – to a judge showing her support for or seeking a lighter sentence for a defendant […]

So, what’s a few more?

Democrats must be perpetually horror-stricken as the Hillary Clinton email saga grinds on. Now, the FBI says it found 15,000 emails she did not turn over to the government and a federal judge says they must be released – and soon.
