Alaska elections office agrees to fast hearing

Posted: Monday, August 23, 2010

ANCHORAGE - The Alaska Public Offices Commission has agreed to hold a fast hearing on a request for expedited consideration of a complaint about Jay Ramras' ads for his business.

The Anchorage Daily News reports the commission is holding a hearing on Monday to consider a request for expedited consideration of the complaint, which says Ramras violated state election law.

The primary is Tuesday. Ramras is in a close race with Mead Treadwell for the Republican nomination for lieutenant governor.

The complaint by Steve Flory of Anchorage alleges the hotel ads, which star Ramras, promote him and his agenda and represent illegal corporate campaign contributions of up to $300,000. Flory says the language in the ads is familiar with a Ramras campaign ad.
