Is Operation Alaska Chaos working? Update: 56 Senate write-in applications so far (chaos for Lisa!)
conservatives4palin ^ | Thursday, October 28, 2010

Posted on 10/28/2010 7:25:42 PM PDT by Bigtigermike

Apparently so, via Kyle Hopkins at the Anchorage Daily News:

I'm sitting at the Division of Elections office here in Midtown, where more than a dozen people have filed this afternoon to run as write-in candidates for U.S. Senate.

KFQD 750 AM radio host Dan Fagan, a backer of Republican nominee Joe Miller, has been urging voters to sign up in an act of "civil disobedience" -- defying what he calls the courts' illegal decision to allow a list of write-in candidates at polling places.

The ruling is expected to aid Sen. Lisa Murkowski's write-in bid. The idea of the mass registration is to create a long list of potential write-in choices and make it harder for voters to find Murkowski's name.

The deadline for registering as a write-in candidate is the close of business today.

"I'm signing up to become a senator," a man in a hoodie said into his cell phone. An Anchorage woman who said she was upset with the court ruling wheeled in her oxygen tank, asking if she could sign up to run for both federal and state office.

More soon.

UPDATE: Make that about two dozen people.

I'm not sure about the Dan Fagan connection. I thought this was Dan Riehl's idea. But as Reagan once said, there's no limit to what can be accomplished if you don't care who gets the credit. If there are any more readers in Alaska, get down to the Division of Elections and join the party.

Update: Hopkins has updated his article to include the following information:

The Anchorage office received 56 Senate write-in applications -- in person or by fax -- in just 45 minutes, said election clerk Raymond McAndrews at 5 p.m.

Question for our Alaska readers: Are there Division of Elections offices other than the one in Anchorage? If so, how many more write-in applications have been received on top of the 56 in Anchorage?

So will the list of write-ins be in alphabetical order? Or will Murkowski be first and all the others behind her in the order that they were added?

Brilliant move! Bravo! It appears that the AK Supreme Court is acting as liberal and screwed up with their write-in ruling as the FL Supreme Court was in their rulings in 2000. The people are not going to just ‘bend over’ any longer. You hear that, Lisa?

It seems the Rats and RINOs have been educating the public on dirty tricks by using them for too long now.

So ordinary Alaskans have adapted Princess Lisa's latest dirty trick to backfire by registering as write in candidates and they will also have the right to hand out literature at the polls.

Conservatives should get as many as possible with names very similar to Moo cow sky so misspellings won't help her.

Sweet.

The word is that the new write in list will be in the hundreds if not over a thousand. I know of at least one Lisa who filed. Many folks faxed their forms into the Juneau office, plus people could file in Soldotna, Wasilla, and Fairbanks in person.

People should sign up to be on the write in candidate list under names like:

Lissa Muhrkouski, Lisa Merkowski, Liza Murkowski, and Lisa Murkowskii..... (you get the idea)

I heard on FNC that if the name is misspelled on the ballot, it doesn’t count.

OK, that's funny.

I can just see the headlines now.

“Alaskans greet their newest Senator, Louis Nukowski”

He ran on the beef jerky and home brew platform.

I hope she comes in a far distant third and those that backed her are weeded out of Alaskan politics.

These days the only way to counter Alinsky is OUT-DO Alinsky.

I sincerely doubt they would toss them out because of a misspell. The ACLU, NOW, RATS etc would probably interject as usual and take it to court because of the disenfranchised votes ...guaranteed!!

We don't know yet, there were many areas like Wasilla and outline areas that have yet to turn them in.......so the number should be even higher by tomorrow .....we do know that a few women name "Lisa" did filed an application.... We don't know their last names though

The courts need to be very, very careful. The American people are really pissed off and they're not going to take this crap. We're not dumb and we'll think of ways to outsmart their ruling and make them look like fools.

This is a nation of laws, but when the judges decide they rule the people they better get ready for a really bumpy ride.

This should be fun. In doing some quick research, it seems that no matter what your lawfulname is, you get to designate what you want put on “the ballot” (in this case the write in list).

Cant wait to see it.

I agree txhurl. We are fighting a political war for our national survival. If we loose this nation will turn into a cross between Detroit and Beirut. There is not one doubt that righteousness is on our side.

We need to turn every underhanded thing they’ve done to us in the last 50 year right back at them. The left is “The Man” now and we are taking him down from the inside! Power to the people!

I'm pretty sure someone up here will post it. Lisa is getting her flying monkey's all lined up ready to go on the attack, she seems to have more signs around Wasilla than Joe Miller but his radio and TV ads are way much better, none of the whining blaming someone else attitude that you get from the Lisa ads. What a way to blow a couple million dollars, everybody says she has no chance at all of even getting more than 15% of the votes. Write in polls whatever they say just cannot predict the people, or the shenanigans.

Voters are FED UP & FIRED UP.

Muskowski should have gone quietly into the night with a bit of dignity.

Now, she has no way to get any dignity back after all her actions, IMO.
