After days of denying its existence, the FBI has released audio of State Senator Lesil McGuire allegedly trying to intimidate a federal witness. McGuire is the wife of convicted former legislator Tom Anderson. Earlier this week, it was revealed that she may have placed threatening calls to federal witness Bill Bobrick, who later testified at Anderson’s trial.
Separately, former Alaska legislator Pete Kott faces sentencing one week from today based on his corruption conviction earlier this fall. Prosecutors have indicated they are seeking more than 10 years in prison for Kott.
