Lisa Murkowski managed to get a favorable court ruling to get the write-in list to the voters.

Dan Riehl noticed that the rules to get on the write-in list were, pretty loose.

That’s only up to the letter “C” Smitty comments:

Perhaps Lisa, Arlen Specter, and Charlie Crist can come together and found the “It’s Our Party And We’ll Cry If We Want To Party”.

and the MSM got it wrong:

Just hours before the final deadline, more than 100 Alaskans came out Thursday to file as write-in candidates in an effort to thwart Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s bid to retain her Senate seat.

At the urging of a local talk radio host, scores of people signed up to be write-in candidates with the Alaska Division of Elections before registration closed. …

But Dan corrects them

She mentioned the idea to me on a phone call, then I called some friends in Alaska to see if it was feasible. I learned we only had 24 hours, so I called my colleagues from Breitbart Media. Ultimately, that led to this Big Government post on the topic.

I sent it to some blogger friends, Ace is one who picked up on it. A reader of Ace’s placed a link to the Big Government item in comments at Just One Minute – pointing it out to a resident of Alaska.

Then that JOM reader went down and registered, calling the radio station afterward. They recounted the complete story in comments at JOM. See how easy reporting can be, my friend?

Dan you are a genius!

  1. […] one really lifted my morale and my mood: check out DaTechguy’s report on how blogger’s, led by Dan Riehl, have caused Lisa ‘The Loosza’ Murkowski a […]

  2. Roxeanne de Luca says:

    No person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained to the age of thirty years, and been nine years a citizen of the United States and who shall not, when elected, be an inhabitant of that state for which he shall be chosen.

    (U.S. Constitution, Article I, Sec. 3)

    Ah, but you all missed what could have been the home run of Operation Chaos: getting every single conservative in America who is over the age of 30 to register. Yes, Alaska probably has an “Alaskans only” part of the registration form, but you just file a hundred thousand of those puppies from all around America, and then get a lawyer to file a lawsuit on one person’s behalf, evidencing an intent to take up residency by next Tuesday, and presto! – an “official write-in ballot list” that is five feet thick. Heck, isn’t there an attorney – Joe, what’s his name, Martin, no, Miller, that’s it, Joe Miller, Yale Law grad, nice guy up there – who could file the suit for y’all?

    Sadly, I did not know about this until today, and no one would have asked my opinion anyway. :(

  3. This is beautiful, just beautiful. I am so glad to get a peek into the real behind-the-scenes story.

    Bloggers aren’t, you know, important or anything . . . wink.
