it's not like there isn't enough room up there. first palin, and now this hypocritical asshat. jebus- keep em up there-we've got more than enough down here. Former mayor: Joe Miller nearly fired from lawyer job - BostonHerald.com JUNEAU, Alaska Republican U.S. Senate candidate Joe Miller almost lost his job as an attorney with the Fairbanks North Star Borough for using government computers in an unsuccessful bid to overthrow Alaskas GOP chairman in 2008, former Mayor Jim Whitaker said. Whitaker told the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner that while Millers actions violated an ethics policy, they didnt get him fired because Miller was needed for work on a pipeline lawsuit. Whitaker said he felt the need to speak up because he didnt think Miller was going to do so. A Miller spokesman didnt immediately respond to a request for comment. Earlier, the campaign referred an Associated Press reporter, who had asked about allegations raised by the online Alaska Dispatch about Millers borough employment, to a statement Miller made Monday saying hed no longer answer questions about his past... In recent weeks, Miller has had to respond to a series of disclosures about his past, including reports that he accepted federal farm subsidies in the 1990s, that his wife briefly obtained unemployment benefits, and that his family for a period received Medicaid benefits he now rails against or believes would be better decided at the state level. He said his family struggled for a time, like a lot of other families have, but that he receives no benefits now and none of this has any relevance to the race i don't blame him for not wanting to talk about his past. anyone that knows anything about him and has a higher than room temp IQ wouldn't vote for him.
