John Moller abruptly leaves Governor’s Office with no explanation

John Moller is no longer working for Governor Mike Dunleavy (R – Alaska). The Landmine broke this on Monday, which the Governor’s Office soon after confirmed. But they would not give any explanation, saying they do not comment on personnel matters.

Moller was a co-chair for Dunleavy’s 2018 gubernatorial campaign. After winning the election, Dunleavy made him part of his transition team. Dunleavy then appointed Moller as a special advisor on rural affairs. Moller was one of the few remaining key staffers that were part of Dunleavy’s original team.

No one in the Governor’s Office will provide any explanation for his departure, either on or off the record. At least three people who work for Dunleavy told me they heard about his departure from the above tweet. A phone call and voicemail to Moller have not been returned.

Moller was supposed to be on calls this weekend regarding confirmation votes for Dunleavy’s appointees that occurred yesterday in a joint session. He was not on the calls, and no explanation was given. For Moller to leave so abruptly and quietly, with zero explanation from him or the Governor’s Office is odd. As is the case in situations like this, rumors and speculation about why Moller left have started. I am working on trying to figure out why he left, but people are being unusually tight lipped about this.

This is a developing story.

From MRAK:

In other security issues related to the Election Office, Bronson observers video recorded a woman trying to enter the building with a box at 10:58 pm on Tuesday night, and several election workers still working in the building after 11 pm, although the Bronson observers had been told that work was done for the night at about 9:30 pm. Having left their observation posts, they returned to the building after 11 pm to find Municipal Clerk Barbara Jones and Deputy Clerk Erika McConnell leaving the building. Two others left the building at the same time.

Trump has taught the extreme right to early on plant the seeds of doubt just in case you lose. Any traces of bamboo near the door?

Election workers unloaded 50 boxes of blank ballots at the Anchorage Election Office on Friday, and stacked the boxes in one of the spacious rooms while counting is underway in the mayor’s runoff election.

There are now thousands of blank ballots in the same building where ballots are being counted. The room the ballots are in has a push-button code, but it’s unknown how many municipal workers have the code.

Fear not, perhaps there is still hope. Since a shredding company was not called to shred the blank ballots in the parking lot, dunbar’s plan B can be implemented…
