Heads up, Steve Rule.
ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Alaska officials are investigating racist jokes about President-elect Barack Obama that have been circulating on state government e-mail accounts.
“They violate state policy — at least that’s the prima facie view of things,” Mr. McAllister said in a telephone interview. “They’re not state business, and obviously they are offensive, and clearly she doesn’t support that. And she does not support racism, and she does not support attacks on the president-elect.” ……
Annette Kreitzer, the state commissioner of administration, told The A.P. that the employees who forwarded the messages could be reprimanded but that it was unlikely they would be dismissed. Ms. Kreitzer did not immediately respond Thursday to requests for an interview.
That’s too damned bad. I think that would get the point across right quick, don’t you?
And the other news – just because I love the headline:
Palin’s Daughter’s Baby-Daddy’s Mom in Drug Bust
A 42-year-old Wasilla woman was arrested Thursday at her home by Alaska State Troopers with a search warrant in an undercover drug investigation. Sherry L. Johnston was charged with six felony counts of misconduct involving a controlled substance….
Troopers served the warrant at Johnston’s home at the “conclusion of an undercover narcotics investigation,” said a statement issued Thursday by the troopers as part of the normal daily summary of activity around the state.
However, it’s apparently ‘Oxycontin related’ = (Hillbilly Heroin). It’s fairly easy to pal around with drug dealers since Wasilla IS the Meth Capital of the World Alaska. Giving ‘trailer trash’ and pigs a good name.
