alaskans What Alaskans are Saying

ICYMI: Read this on ADN

I have been a major Planned Parenthood supporter for 50 years, as well as my father before me. As much as I support the PP mission, and PPVotes support for candidates who support that mission, I am totally appalled that they have chosen to support No on Ballot Measure 2 in Alaska.

How do you imagine that ranked choice voting, open primaries, transparency and overturning Citizens United are enemies of choice? They are all positive elements of citizen democracy. All I can imagine is that PPVotes has become a slavish lap dog of Democratic Party operatives, and is thus willing to throw independents and third parties under the bus in their quest for Machiavellian partisan power.
