Is this it?
Rostad said he received the phone call from Miller's father after Kodiak Republicans asked him to find out what happened at the Fairbanks borough. Rostad forwarded the results of the conversation to a number of Republicans in an e-mail sent Thursday night. Rostad wrote in the e-mail that Rex Miller told him there was a poll being conducted as part of the effort to oust Ruedrich as state Republican Party chairman.
Here's how Rex Miller described what happened, according to Rostad's e-mail:
"One noon hour, on his own time at the borough, Joe participated in an online poll voting against Randy. He used four office computers in the office to do it, thinking this was his chance to boost numbers to get rid of Randy. He emptied the cache files on the computers so the users wouldn't know what he had done. When the users asked what had happened to their caches, (Miller) admitted to what he did. He was reprimanded and docked in pay for several days, but was not suspended or fired."
"Rex told me that his son called him that same day and admitted that he did a stupid thing. He said he was sorry. Joe was 'never in danger of being fired at any time,' Rex said," Rostad wrote in the e-mail.
He tried to Freep an online poll, at work.
Drew says "let's not pretend this isn't a bad thing," but it's just not. Miller was an employee (part-time) and it was the employer's policy that computers not be used for political purposes. Okay -- he violated the employer's rules... but what he did can barely even be termed "for political processes." He went to four machines because they had different IPs and voted on them all to Freep a meaningless online poll.
This is what Murcszinski has her hopes pinned on?
I'm sure most of you are probably not supposed to comment on websites at work. Yeah, okay. Well, fine. If you get caught, you get a slap on your wrist. You wouldn't expect this to disqualify you for higher office.
Oh, I Like This Part:
When the users asked what had happened to their caches, (Miller) admitted to what he did.
He admitted it. And right now he's saying "I haven't lived a perfect life" as if this is some big black mark.
Guy seems pretty squeaky clean if this is the stuff he's confessing to and apologizing about.
How about all the FEDERAL and STATE employees that routinely view porn as we PAY their salaries?
Well, that does it. What else can you say but “THAILAND!”
This is the best they can do? This is almost hilarious...
“How about all the FEDERAL and STATE employees that routinely view porn as we PAY their salaries?”
And even worse- how about the SEC officials who were watching porn during the stock market crash?
Sorry, this disqualifies him in my view...he is human...he is not perfect...I’ve never net surfed on my employer’s time and dime...then again, the net did not exist in my corporate days and I’ve been self-employed since way back then...hint, I discovered FR Thanksgiving weekend ‘97...tell me, I don’t have to put sarcasm tag on!
That does it! At least he could have practiced witchcraft with Aqua Buddha! He’s not getting my vote!
That is sooooo cute!
What a cute kitty.
I don't give him a pass on this. It was stupid. In some jurisdictions, it's unlawful.
I don't buy the comparison to Kennedy. The swimmer was a scum that should have been prosecuted. What he did doesn't make it ok for the pubbie.
I’m SHOCKED ... OUTRAGED I tell you !!!
Lock up your women and children !!!
Send in Eric Holder and the goons - ramp up the congressional investigations !!!
Madame LeFarge - get yer knitting, Madame Gullotine is awaitin’ ...
This must be the October Surprise...LOL.
Murkyouchsky, is one ugly woman. She just emits hate when she looks at Joe. Alaska is a beautiful state, they might want to take that into consideration when they select Senator.
“This is the best they can do? This is almost hilarious...”
Oh, but it gets worse...One time when Joe Miller was eight, his mom caught him drinking three Yoo-Hoos before dinner...
I just love him too. You’re welcome to copy the link and use it anytime you like. :-)
“In Texas, unauthorized use of computer facilites can be charged as a felony. I’ve persued those charges for egregious behavior.
I don’t give him a pass on this. It was stupid. In some jurisdictions, it’s unlawful.

—It ain’t Texas.
You know, that’s one of the things I really love about this place..... we love our kitty cats.
So, Joe Miller FReeped while at work. Oh the humanity! Is this all witch Lisa has? At worst, he deserves 50 lashes with wet fettuccine.... then send him to DC Alaska!
