The Alaska Stalker – May 23, 2018

Welcome to this week’s edition of The Alaska Stalker, a semi-regular lighthearted round up of the best and worst of Alaska’s social media landscape. Thank you to all our readers and fans! Keep those tips coming – we couldn’t do it without you.


Is Mike Dunleavy standing tall or falling over? No judgement – everyone knows Gallo’s margs are ?


When Representative David Eastman has a more subtle approach than you for finding new candidates to run for office, you might have gone too far. That being said, I can’t wait for 5:00pm on June 1st! Popcorn on Apple iOS 11.3


I’m udderly shocked at Joe Miller’s cowardly behavior. This beef is old and a load of bull – after her legendairy successful write-in campaign, everyone, especially Miller, knows it’s spelled Murkowski.


I didn’t know Representative Geran Tarr managed the social media account for Miss USA.

Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, whatever.

Apparently Representative Tarr is in good company.


Since we no longer have any professional sports teams, can Alaska claim oil prices as our official team now that betting can be legalized? Ivan Moore already has some skin in the game.

In other betting news, how long before the Alaska Stalker steps in it and is embroiled in our own scandal? We give it one billion to one odds that it will happen eventually. And, just so you know, it’s official Alaska Landmine policy to never apologize. XOXO



To quote your email, Senator Giessel, “I’d hate to see a senator as smart as you getting bad information and not questioning it.” Everyone knows Brad lives in Cape Breton. ???


True story. I always hear about conservative women getting torn apart in The Mudflats. Best to stay away entirely.


WHY ARE YOU YELLING MICHAEL SHELDON?!  Pro tip: turn the Caps Lock off. I don’t even know what to say about that last bit.


A tipster sent us this. Note: AK Stalker confirmed that former School Board Candidate Tasha Hotch “surprised emojied” and not “liked” this post. Even still. She might just want to stay away from posts like this. For the kids and all.


Did Forrest’s mom move to Anchorage?


Meme of the Week:

Sometimes, WHO shared the meme is better than the meme itself. Thanks for the confidence booster Judy! 



Spotted in Anchorage:

Assemblyman Eric Croft attending “The Death of Stalin” at Bear Tooth

Representative Jason Grenn shopping with the wife and kids at Costco like Juneau didn’t even happen

Mayor Dan cheating on McGinley’s Pub with F Street Station


The Stalker is going national! Spotted in DC:

Dang. The US Senate Energy Committee is #highenergy


Overheard in Anchorage:

“Alaska Ear who? It’s all about the Alaska Stalker now.” Awww shucks. We’re blushing.


The Alaska Stalker likes to poke fun, but we bristle when folks punch too hard, or stay silent when others are treated poorly (or in this case despicably). The worst part is I almost believe this quote from the Midnight Sun’s post-session anonymous tell all.

After all, if a state representative receives, and I’m quoting here, “a series of very detailed, graphic, and grotesque death/torture threats” and there are 39 legislators that never speak out against it, what kind of message does that send? How sad. Thank you for serving, Representative Eastman. Stay safe. And, you know, thanks for all the material!

Here’s the post from last fall, in case you missed it. It’s hard to read.


That will do it for us this week folks. Don’t forget to send your favorite social media and online goofs, gaffs, memes, dust-ups, “Overheard in Alaska” and “Only in Alaska” moments, or whatever else you got to Our DMs are always open. Remember: pics or it didn’t happen!
