Here’s Dan Sullivan, described today at Mudflats as “Mayor/Trustee Hybrid” of Anchorage. I’m pretty ticked about what I called “insurance-gate” in my tweets… but now I’m gonna call it Sullygate. For he hath sullied our fine democracy. (Again.) I’m writing a full post about this due out late tonight.
