JUDICIARY COMMITTEE HEARS FROM ATTORNEY GENERAL DESIGNEE ROSS
Disclaimer: I have known Wayne Ross since 1995, and we attend the same church - but because of church schedules, we don't often see each other there. I don't think anyone would accuse Mr. Ross of being a "shrinking violet." Some would say he is "opinionated but lovable." Some wouldn't be so kind. Personally I like him. One doesn't have to agree with someone 100% to like them.
During the hearing I think Wayne Ross projected his unique personality, demonstrated competence, and defended himself admirably against some outrageous allegations - while "keeping his cool." A few committee questions seemed like the hearing was less about confirming confirming Mr. Ross, than it was about "confirming" Governor Palin. The photo shows Wayne and me talking when he visited my Juneau office earlier in the week.

Whatever Stevens allegedly did or didn’t do that initiated this mess - and only the principal actors really know – the prosecutors bungled the case. In America, everyone deserves a fair trial and apparently in this case it didn’t happen.
The prosecutorial debacle obviously contributed to Senator Stevens’ re-election defeat in November, which probably otherwise wouldn’t have happened. Stevens was represented by topnotch (meaning expensive) attorneys, and it’s a good thing he was. Good for him. No one deserves to be convicted unfairly, whatever their economic or political status.
It makes me proud justice occurred. Now it’s time to look forward and forth good things for Alaska, with lessons learned.
