Have been watching intently since my morning cuppa when I read Gryphen’s announcement @ The Immoral Minority about Joe Miller’s personnel file being released. When I saw the link to the whole .pdf file at the Alaska Dispatch I couldn’t wait to clockout. Their full report of this is a must read.
This is a file of emails so if you’re heading over there to read the lot, please scroll to the very bottom and read ‘up’. Where places appear to be out of chronological order, they’re actually not – original emails are often used to refer back to old topics by using them as replies. so a new email written in september might actually be attached to an older email wo the writer doesnt have to keep rewriting same information. Think of them as threads in a forum.
In case you can’t read a .pdf file, or in case the Alaska Dispatch servers become flooded, I’ve downloaded the entire file (I’d post it here but apparently wordpress doesn’t allow for .pdf downloads) and will try to sort out a place to put it tomorrow night. (First I need sleep – then more work. Dratted job!)
However, I did read this from cover to cover and took some screenies of a few rather confronting bits of information. The whole truth about Joe usng the office computers and the ensuing consequences comes to light between the pdf pages (not the email page numbers) 33 through 19. Most informative. i’ve circled in bright pink where the pdf page numbers can be found in the file on the first screenie
This is what Joe Miller has been trying so desperately to hide from the Alsaka voters:
This is a small portion of a five page statement made by Jill Dolan regarding finding her cache had been emptied – just after a period of time that she had left Joe lone in the office.
This is most of Joe’s confession to his superior at FNSB. What you don’t see is his enthusiastic disclaimer which threatens all but bodily harm to anyone caught disclosing this document to anyone else.
Jill Dolan’s letter to Joe Miller informing him of an official investigation and his sidelining until said investigation has been completed.
Part of the email from Rene Broker at the conclusion of an investigation outlining part of his consequences.
So here we have factual confirmation. Joe Miller tried to use government computers to stuff a ballot box at a poll he created on his own website, lied about it until he realized he was caught with no way out, was investigated and disciplined.
A bit of noteworthy info: His disciplinary action put him on a six month probation which stipulated this letter of reprimand would be deleted from his personnel file after 2 years PROVIDING no further incidents occur during said probation.
BUT Joe apparently got mad just a few months later and walked off the job in a huff, leaving his work behind and the FNSB in the lurch. So – we ultimately have his anger mismanagement to thank for these files seeing the light of day.
Good job Alaska reporters and bloggers! kudos to everyone who persevered in getting these files out in the open.
Oh wait. Saved the best for last. I have one more teensy bit of fluff to share…
Hey Joe? You do know where Cobra comes from right? I mean technically, it’s called Cobra Law. Why? Because it *is* a *law*… and where do you think *laws* come from? Yup. You got it. That pesky darned gov’mint givin’ away the farm to undeserving folks like… you!
