Anchorage Judge Allows Effort to Recall Alaska Governor to Proceed
Anchorage Superior Court Judge Eric Aarseth reversed the Division of Election’s rejection of the Recall Dunleavy campaign application.
The Division of Elections rejected a bid to advance the recall effort based on an opinion from Attorney General Kevin Clarkson.
Clarkson found the reasons listed for the recall were factually and legally deficient.
The Recall Dunleavy group argued that Clarkson’s analysis was overreaching and the recall effort should be allowed to move to a second signature-gathering phase.
Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s administration stated it will appeal the decision to the Alaska Supreme Court.
