Campaign Volunteer Accused of Stealing Opposition's Flyers
Assembly member Dick Traini claims a campaign volunteer, for Andy Josephson, stole 142 flyers Sunday (10/21) after going door to door in a midtown neighborhood for the State House District 15 race.
ANCHORAGE-- Assembly member Dick Traini claims a campaign volunteer for Andy Josephson stole 142 flyers Sunday (10/21) after going door to door in a midtown neighborhood for the state house district 15 race.
Monday afternoon (10/22) Traini said the move cost him and his family hours of work, and has filed a police report regarding the alleged theft.
The woman accused, Tabitha Williams, allegedly told Traini she was not familiar with the political process, but Traini says she has experience as a former staffer. Williams supposedly told the Traini camp she was instructed to take the flyers.
District 15 candidate, Andy Josephson, said Williams has been 1 of nearly 50 volunteers for his campaign. He says Williams remains somewhat of a mystery and said she is no longer allowed to work on his cause; adding he has zero tolerance for this type of behavior.
