Despite what political affiliation one has, certain questions must be raised.

Why are our legislators being targeted by FBI? Are other states having their legislators targeted like ours?

Why are the ones targeted connected to oil concerns? Does some power person who doesn't want development have a friend in the FBI?

The FBI built an office building in Anchorage a few years ago. Before that, we did not have these problems. Does the FBI feel the need to justify the new building or their jobs?

If other trials turn out like former Rep. Tom Anderson's then it appears being innocent on some or all charges does not matter.

Is this about the FBI not being able to lose face? According to the news, the FBI apparently harassed witnesses for Anderson. Why?

What is really going on here?

If it can happen to them, it can happen to you or me.
