Opinion: I don’t believe Gross, I’m not voting for him either

Unsolicited emails, postcards, and robocalls from the Al Gross Senate campaign boggles the mind.

Alan Gross is not being honest

The absolute avalanche of unsolicited emails, postcards, and robocalls by the Alan Gross Senate campaign boggles the mind. The TV ads are non-stop. The lion’s share of these are paid for by out of state PAC’s trying to interfere in our elections.

Even more annoying is that his campaign is almost solely based on false attack ads on his opponent, Sen. Dan Sullivan. He hardly mentions what he would do if he gets elected. Instead, he talks about his supposed episode of killing a bear, when he bought a fishing boat and being related to a former Alaskan Attorney General.

He also says that he earned as much as $2.5 million a year while he was a practicing orthopedic surgeon in Juneau. Now he feels so awful about that he wants to reform our healt hcare system so nobody can ever do that again. Don’t worry, though, it won’t cost you anything — he says.

Gross insists he is an “independent” and an “authentic Alaskan” despite the fact he told Democrats that he would caucus with them and that his values are “to the left.” Out-of-state liberal groups are pouring money into his campaign — so much he is outspending his opponent many times over.

Are these the qualifications and positions of somebody you want to represent you in the U. S. Senate?

As you can tell, I find Alan Gross’ campaign pretty unbelievable…I’m not buying it.

And I’m not voting for him either.

John Niemi,

Douglas
