Damn...Alaska Supreme Court Rules Princess Lisa Is Special Afterall

Some bad news to offset the good news in the last post.

Alaska Supreme Court rules that election officials can provide voters with a list of names of write in candidates.

After a day's worth of back-and-forth, the Alaska Supreme Court on Wednesday said voters can look at a list of certified write-in candidates when they go to the polls.

The Supreme Court's decision late Wednesday blocked a lower court ruling made earlier in the day from taking effect while the high court further considers an appeal.

The Alaska Democratic Party and the Alaska Republican Party joined forces this week in court seeking to keep the list out of voting places. They thought they'd won the case Wednesday morning when the lower court judge told the state Division of Elections to remove the list from voting places statewide.

But the Supreme Court decision allows voters at early voting sites to see the lists if they say they need help and want to be shown a list of write-in candidates. The decision could aid Sen. Lisa Murkowski's write-in U.S. Senate bid; her campaign had fought to keep the lists at polling places.

"This stay will ensure that Alaskans can continue to get the assistance they're entitled to under law," said campaign manager Kevin Sweeney in a statement.

The Supreme Court did say the lists must not disclose the party affiliation of the write-in candidates. And the ballots of those voters who ask for the list must be segregated from the ballots of other voters, pending any additional appeals.

Funny how this comes up now that Mercywitcki is a write in but not before when other candidates went the write in route. I wonder if daddy Merzkowsky appointed any of these judges.

More bad news for Miller...Slu sends along a poll which says Miller is in third place. Poll is of adults, not even registered, let alone likely voters so it's meaningless (thanks to Greggory in the comments for pointing that out).

Is Alaska really going to send this go along, get along hack back to the Senate over an actual conservative and war hero?

I blame Eisenhower.

Joe Miller for Senate

Thanks to Rebecca Grunewald for the heads up on the AK Supreme Court story.

Looks like Miller has a big event in Anchorage today with some big time firepower coming in for the occasion.
