Sullygate: The complete bibliography

Mayor Dan Sullivan; Assembly Mike Gutierrez in background

Sullygate” is my nickname for the putative insurance payout of $193,000 from the Anchorage municipal treasury to a trust — the George M. Sullivan Irrevocable Life Insurance Trust — led by George M. Sullivan’s son, Anchorage Mayor Dan Sullivan, which was approved by the Anchorage Assembly by a 9-1 vote on February 16, 2010.  Perhaps it’s a biased nickname … but sorry to say that even on the face of it, this business is pretty darn fishy.

I wrote a really long analysis of it on Friday, 5 March 2010, called Sullygate: If there is a contractual agreement, Mayor Sullivan, show us the contract” and since then I’ve been adding links to all the other posts, news stories, etc. that I’ve found at the bottom of that post.  Time to give this bibliography its own page. So here it is.

I’ll add to this bibliography as new items come out. If  I’m missing anything, please comment on this page & include a link.  Or you can send me a private tweet to my Twitter account @yksin or a private message via my Facebook page.
