Legislators call for investigation of VECO campaign activities

Two state Democratic lawmakers sent a letter today to Attorney General Talis Colberg and Alaska Public Offices Commission (APOC) director Brooke Miles, saying the state should be stepping up to investigate violations of campaign laws by VECO. Representatives Harry Crawford and Les Gara say alleged payment for polls and campaign fundraisers and reimbursing VECO executives for campaign donations would be clear election law violations. Crawford says they rise to criminal conduct that should not be subject to a one year statute of limitations that APOC is required to follow for misconduct going back more than a year.
