Craig Campbell is one of those opportunistic politicians that sold what little integrity he had when after first criticizing Sarah Palin for saying she ran the Guard in Alaska during the 2008 campaign. Then he came out and defended her statement and she rewarded him with his third star. These people have little integrity and view politics as a way to gain power. What a travesty for the Alaska people.

Alaska politics is the most corrupt I've ever heard about. It beats Illinois out. You have a Governor with all these ethics violations who appoints a Lt.Gov . who is even worse and even had fraud problems with the Air Force as reported by a retired Lt. Col. Then he retaliates against honest Guardsmen and caters to despicable cronies. He awards two loser Generals while neglecting the troops who fought in Iraq,etc. This could go on and on. Someone is asleep at the wheel. This is a democracy where integrity doesn't matter and bribery is the new name of the game. This guy Campbell would have been booted during my time but then those were days of honor. I fought in Korea with honorable men who didn't sit behind a desk figuring out who gets screwed next.

Obviously there is a new world order and corrupt politicians seem to be in charge. Are we in a stupor and have given up? We must demand integrity in our officials. In Alaska, there apparently are no elections by the people just apppointees by a flippant Governor who main concern is herself and her ambitions. She appoints a Lt. Gov. who has many ethical problems himself.

Alaska has my sympathy. Craig Campbell was a pathetic leader in the Guard and a big lap dog of Sarah Palin's. He will "screw" the state if it benefits himself. Why hasn't he been investigated for ethics violations? Is Palin protecting him OR Parnell? Wake up ALaska!!!

A vote for Craig Campbell is a vote for: cronyism, lack of integrity, ineptness, vindictiveness,continue to screw the National Guard, keep the Guard at a low morale, throw out investigations against his coherts, keep inferior people as they don't pose a threat to his ineptness, resort to any means to get what he wants if it means lying, distorting facts, fraudulence, etc. stabbing those in the back who defy him, etc. This man? has a litany of illicit activities.

Craig Campbell is Sarah Palin's lap dog and cares only about promoting himself. Why hasn't he been investigated for ethics violations or is Alaska politics beyond corruptness and answering to the people. This man is a despicable liar.
