Shannyn Moore: Hackney's hacks are just the beginning

The same Alaska GOP that subverted the will of Alaskans through an illegal gerrymandering of the state Legislature and brazen attempts to prevent Alaska Natives from voting apparently now has a new tack for undermining the public will: paid hacks are verbally and physically interfering with Alaskans who are gathering signatures to repeal the oil wealth giveaway.
On its face, Hackney's eagerness to execute the GOP and oil industry's voter intimidation scheme is offensive enough, especially given their eagerness to use illegally-drawn legislatures and voter suppression bills to get their way in Alaska. The same parties claiming their massive corporate welfare check will be Alaska's salvation haven't called out Mr. Hackney's behavior. Are they not confident enough in the merits of their argument that they will watch a man fight their fight for them and risk breaking the law to prevent Alaskans from having a chance to vote on it?
