Skip to comments.Write-ins flood Alaska Senate race list
Posted on 10/29/2010 12:05:05 PM PDT by Mozilla
In a movement one pro-Sarah Palin website is calling Operation Alaska Chaos, at least 100 people filed paperwork Thursday to register as write-in candidates in the U.S. Senate election, according to the Division of Elections.
A stream of would-be senators filtered through the elections office in Midtown Anchorage late in the day, many saying the effort is meant to protest an order by the Alaska Supreme Court on Wednesday allowing a list of write-in candidates to be shown to voters who ask for assistance.
The idea of a mass registration is to create a long list of potential write-in choices and make it harder for voters to find Murkowskis name.
(Murkowski) should have ran harder before the primary. And she didnt. And she lost, said Veronica Keanaaina of Eagle River, who signed up as a candidate in protest.
Hers was one of 56 Senate write-in applications the Anchorage elections office received in person or by fax in just 45 minutes late Thursday afternoon, said election clerk Raymond McAndrews.
Conservatives4Palin.com rallied Alaskans to join the effort with the headline Attention Alaska Readers: Assist Joe Miller Through 'Operation Alaska Chaos.
A list of candidates on the Division of Elections website included more than 40 write-in names late Thursday, but employees at the Anchorage office said other names were still being processed.

So the Ruling Class wants to tilt the election. Alaska patriots fight back. God bless them!
Expect the Alaska Supreme Liberal Court to issue an injunction on any applications after their ruling citing.....”No fairsee’s, No dibbs, No takebacks!”..
More humor over here... http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2617232/posts
Find a person named Lisa Murkowsky and/or Lisa Murkovski, and Ilse Murkowski and Liza Murkowski, etc.
Maybe a John Kennedy, too.
I personally will be casting my vote for Lisa Mrukowski, and I suggest you all do the same.
LMAO. Love it!
This recalls a great scene in movie history - everybody tosses their name into the hat:
I am Spartacus!
Good advice . Yes . lets waste our votes after all of this .
Do you want Miller to lose?
“LMAO. Love it!”
Me too. This is great that the patriots in Alaska are fighting back.
True conservatives have known how to combat the BS for years but none of the republican leaders will ever fight it - even as the left gets away with one weaselly trick after another. I am so happy that the middle class conservative people are rising up and doing this kind of in your face stuff. It is like all the lefties can do in your face stuff and the middle is too dignified for it. I am tired of the weasels winning because we are dignified.
We've already been told that spelling Murkowski's name correct is not required in order for a write-in vote to count for her.
So what makes anyone think that when somebody writes in "John Smith" that it won't be COUNTED as a minor misspelling of "Lisa Murkowski". Vote counters will just count damn near ALL write-ins for Princess Lisa no matter what is scribbled on the ballot.
Do you actually live in Alaska or are you stirring the pot?
100 names is hardly a “flood”. lol
+1! Make the list impossible to put out.
Maybe it should say something to RINOs when their alleged base treats them with as much contempt as Democrats usually do. You’d think they’d get the message but, apparently they don’t.
Actually, where I’m from I’m closer to the action than anyone in the lower 48.
If a person named Lisa Murkowski registers as a write in, then anyone’s write in will go to her, not the usurper one.
Went to Alaska Division of Elections website and read 148 names of write-in candidates. I didn't count the scores that were denied because they arrived too late.
This is a "screw you" message from the people of Alaska - to the court that ruled in Murkowski's favor. Hahahahaha
“”I personally will be casting my vote for Lisa Mrukowski, and I suggest you all do the same.””
No... That’s MooCowSki...
Like they say “If you can’t dazzle ‘em with brilliance, baffle ‘em with bullshit”? Don’t mess with the “CUDA”
Sarah Palin should register HER name as a write-in!!
I wonder how this judge voted on the Lisa Murkowski case:
Shall Dana A. Fabe be retained as judge of the supreme court for ten years?
(District Search) — (Alpha Search)
If she voted for the Murkowski ruling, then I asume freepers..and other conservatives might want to also take on another operation “judicial removal”.
Russia’s way further away than I was. :)
Once a man from the county of Cork captured a leprechaun and forced him to reveal his treasure. Since a leprechaun can never refuse, he led the man to a tree beneath which the gold was buried. The man marked the tree with a red scarf, planning to return with a shovel, and made the leprechaun promise not to touch it. The leprechaun, true to his word, left the scarf, but when the man returned, he found a red scarf tied to every tree in the area.
I assume you did not see that he misspelled her name. It WAS A JOKE!
I wonder if people write-in “b&tch” if that will count to Lias Murkdolsksi.
Like what you said !
On your tag line.... Palin Demint is fine, but Sarah is not interested in the #2 spot.
Are you telling me he’s not dyslexic?
So how many ways can you sell Murkowski? 1)Moorcowski, 2)Morecowski, 3)Moonbeam, 4)Kurmowski, 5)Murrkowlski, 6)Al Franken.
We can only hope that every Alaskan who’s name sounds like Lisa Murkowski runs for Senator!
I’m not sure they wouldn’t give the votes to the murcowski if someone writes in a name similar to hers. No, its better if they just vote for Joe.
Then why are you here?
We have some confused or poor spellers. LOL!
you SHOULD be voting for Joe Miller-! although Mircalsky would also make a fine write-in-!
Great one! I never heard that one before.
I see in the news now that Alaska plans on considering intent of the voter. You do not have to spell her name correctly for the vote to be counted.
The list is sorted alphabetically which is unfair to those at the bottom. The names should be presented in a random order.
One, I’m not an Alaskan.
Two, if I were I’d be casting my ballot for Miller.
Three, I’ve written articles in his support.
Four, I think he’s the best candidate of all the Republican senate nominees.
Five, I think Princess Lisa is a spoiled brat who needs to make like a leaf and blow.
Six, I think this write-in backlash is hilarious.
Seven, I mispelled her name, tongue in cheek.
Eight, I wish people understood satire better.
Nine, We are conservatives, we should be able to take a poke at one another.
Ten, At least some Freepers understood.
