Legislature Rejects Governor's Choice for Attorney General

In an unprecedented move, the 26th Alaska Legislature today rejected Governor Sarah Palin's nomination for attorney general. Lawmakers failed to confirm Wayne Anthony Ross by a vote of 23 to 35.

"I believed I knew what Alaskans wanted when I selected an individual who is a strong backer of 2nd Amendment rights, a staunch supporter of the state Constitution and a defender of life," Governor Palin said. "Wayne Anthony Ross supports responsible, ethical development of Alaska's rich resources. I'm surprised that legislators in this case really did not seem to represent their constituents and allowed themselves to be swayed by side issues. Mr. Ross is a fine Alaskan. He is held in high esteem by many Alaskans. I appreciate his willingness to serve the public."
