Thanks to all of you who are submitting daily emails to the Legislative Council urging them to release the results of the Branchflower Report as soon as it becomes available! It is absolutely critical that these council members realize that the eyes of the nation are upon them, and that Americans have the right to know the results of this ethics investigation before they cast their vote in November.
We now know that the seven state employees that were told they could ignore legislative subpoenas, have had a change of heart and will now honor those subpoenas. They will be permitted to make statements in writing to keep things moving quickly. Please keep those emails coming.
And here’s your Top 10 Reasons to Release the Report (from Gryphen at The Immoral Minority)
10: Maybe once the report comes out people will stop naming their pitbulls “Sarah” and making them wear lipstick. Because that is just all kinds of wrong.
9: It will give Troopergate, and to start lying about why Sarah Palin got her ass handed to her in tonight’s debate. the opportunity to stop lying about and
8: If it doesn’t come out then what will Alaska Progressive bloggers write about all weekend?
7: This investigation cost Alaska $100,000. The last time Alaskans wasted $100,000 with nothing to show for it, was on exotic dancers and cocaine back in the oil drenched 1980s.
6: Because the McCain campaign does not want the report to be made public, and when was the last time ANYBODY told Alaskans not to do something and we listened?
5: Once this report is finally out we can all stop pretending to like .
4: The report will undoubtedly convince the Palins that they need to return home where surely they will be inspired to add yet another offspring to their brood, perhaps this one to be named “Phlegm Wingnut Palin”?
Tune in tomorrow for reason #3.
I’ve posted the emails of the legislators in the comment thread, excluding those who have already committed to voting yes to release the report.
Remember, these Council members are under a tremendous amount of pressure from the McCain campaign to NOT release the results of this investigation until after the election. We have been having an effect! Do not underestimate this. Please keep those emails coming!
