APOC probing VECO elections influence

The Alaska Public Offices Commission (APOC) held an emergency meeting this afternoon to discuss their investigation of VECO’s potential illegal financial ties to past and present state lawmakers. The probe comes just weeks after former VECO Vice President Rick Smith testified during the Pete Kott trial that the company paid for dozens of polls for candidates favored by the oil industry.
