$175,000 down the drain so far

So far, due to our so-called conservative legislators' bull-headedness, the Division of Elections has spent $175,000 on printing up ballots for the special advisory vote (lots cheaper to just take a poll, guys). And it's none other than North Pole's John Coghill who sponsored this stupid $1.2 million advisory boondoggle in the first place.

Hooray for Mike Doogan, who's got a sense of fiscal responsibility and is trying to head off this colossal waste of money.

Amazing, the effort and expense so much of our legislature is willing to go to so that a segment of Alaska's population can be relegated to second-class status. Just makes me feel all rosy and proud of our great state.
