NOTE this first from ALECExposed:
Sen. Lesil McGuire (R-N); Tax and Fiscal Policy TaskForce
By KYLE HOPKINS | email@example.com • Published June 05, 2013ANCHORAGE – Sen. Lesil McGuire announced Wednesday she will run for lieutenant governor,And, she added, having a woman on the Republican ticket "brings an interesting perspective for Alaskans
Having a member of the American Legislative Exchange Council on the ticket brings a disgusting perspective to the race.
"The mayor has done a good job leading the city in many ways, but I think a fair characterization would be that he has been fairly polarizing in recent years," McGuire said. Sullivan successfully pushed for a re-write of city labor laws this year in a bitter fight with labor unions.
No - Being an member of the American Legislative Exchange Council has become polarizing in recent years.
McGuire supported tax cuts to oil companies sought by Parnell. The Senate approved the tax plan in April.
Naturally – anything ALEC corporate members want to expand their revenues.
And then OOPS!
McGuire was married to former Anchorage Rep. Tom Anderson when Anderson was convicted in 2007 of taking secret payments in return for pushing a private prison company's interests in Alaska. She was not implicated in the corruption probe and filed for divorce in 2010.
“taking secret payments in return for pushing a private prison company's interests”
ALEC’s private prison corporate members?????- YEP!
McGuire said she believes she is now best known more for her work on energy issues and other policy efforts rather than her former marriage to Anderson. "I think Alaskans know me for who I am," she said.
Yep, they know who she is - an ALEC-er.
