Year-old newspaper comment knocks Kodiak resident off Kott jury

A juror in the Kott trial had to be dismissed this morning after the Defense team found a “letter to the editor” she had written last year on the “Kodiak Daily Mirror” website. Kodiak resident Lisa Polito wrote the letter last October after federal agents raided the offices of VECO and six legislators. In the letter, she expresses concern that Kodiak representative Gabrielle Ledoux had not returned campaign contributions from the “scandal ridden” company.
