Letter: Taylor’s whopper

You’d think the basic qualifications to be appointed Alaska’s attorney general would include honesty and integrity. Sadly, ADN’s coverage of the Alaska Supreme Court rejecting requirements by the Dunleavy administration to make employees opt into union representation yearly suggests otherwise.

This administration has told some whoppers over these past four years, but trotting Treg Taylor out to claim he is just protecting employees’ First Amendment rights against state government overreach surely ranks at the top of the list. I’ll bet Treg Taylor doesn’t even believe Treg Taylor on that one. Looks like this attorney general is now content playing down to the low ethical bar previously put into place by Dunleavy-appointed attorneys general Kevin Clarkson and Ed Sniffen.
