Welcome to this week’s edition of The Alaska Stalker, a lighthearted round up of the best and worst of Alaska’s social media landscape. Have you sent us a hot tip yet? Email us at [email protected] and, as always, thanks for reading.
For someone with strong political views, I try my best to play it fair. With a couple exceptions. While I don’t count my sick burns every week, I often find more Republicans in my cross-hairs (ACK! Are you still allowed to say that?) than Democrats. This makes sense as there are more Republican politicians in Alaska than Democrats. For now. That being said, that is not the case this week. Democrats be warned: this week is all you. If you want to change that, send me more tips.
After doing some exhaustive Facebook stalking re: the plastic bag ban, Facebook stalked back and rewarded me with this targeted ad.
Speaking of bans, I think I have the perfect idea for Assemblymember Constant’s next “banned in Anchorage” item: balloons! The party’s over. Tsk, tsk, tsk Elvi. We are very #triggered. ?❌❌❌
Even celebrities are calling on Senator Lisa Murkowski to vote no on Kavanaugh.
I’m sure Senator Murkowski is paying close attention to this most important issue. Later that day…
You guys. Who’s going to tell them? We’ll let Dave Stieren take this one. We aren’t that cruel.
Dave, you forgot to add, “and Donald J. Trump is your President.”
Anchorage Assemblymember Amy Demboski is also weighing in on the SCOTUS debate. Troll level ?
Wait a minute, is Amy auditioning to fill in for the Stalker while we’re on maternity leave next year? She’s really got our format down. Amy, call us!
We are living for this amazing photograph from the Juneau Chamber of Commerce Gubernatorial debate via AP. It looks like teeny tiny versions of Senator Mark Begich and Governor Bill Walker are sitting at the kids table fighting over
scraps votes. Meanwhile Senator Dunleavy looks as giant as those big budgets he voted for back in 2013 and 2014.
Can someone please show this tweet to POTUS? Honestly, we love all of these answers. They are right on script for all three gubernatorial candidates. That -4 tho. Best line of the night!
First it was Anchorage Assemblymember Forrest Dunbar and now it’s Anchorage Assemblymember Eric Croft. Yikes! Looks like the Assembly might need to take a field visit to a couple of Anchorage’s finer establishments for some sensitivity training.
On second thought, has Eric been hacked?! This #fakenews/fishing for comments scam he posted is as old as a Nigerian Prince. Also, You’re left of center Eric. Facebook isn’t censoring you. We promise.
You may have heard the news this week that Gubernatorial candidate, Senator Mark Begich, came out in favor of Stand for Salmon, Yes on 1 ballot measure.
Meanwhile, a top official in the Walker administration, Commissioner of the Alaska Department of Administration Leslie Ridle, has weighed in on another very important seafood issue. No word yet if this is the Governor’s official opinion.
Less John-Henry Heckendorn emails, more Lindsay Walker Hobson emails, please. We like them Mallott. <3
This is a goof, but Governor Walker might want to look into this targeted online campaign strategy.
After losing the Republican primary election in District 22, former Representative Liz Vazquez has found a higher calling as a moose mama. According to the comments, Cory from Fish & Game was scheduled to come assess the injury. Fingers crossed for the little one.
Looks like the Alaska Democrats finally got the memo that candidate for Congress, Alyse Galvin, won the Democratic primary. About time.
Speaking of Alyse, here she is in a recently posted Facebook Live. She stopped on the side of the Seward Highway on her way back from Hope to see, and I quote, “more whales than we can count.” We watched the video. Twice. There are zero whales. ???
LIVE at Beluga Point with the belugas! A true Alaskan day on the trail!
