ANCHORAGE - U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri says she wants to strip Alaska Native corporations of the unprecedented edge they now enjoy in obtaining federal contracts worth billions of dollars.
I am outraged that my native corporation Sealaska has contributed our money to Lisa Murkowski's campaign bucket. They have no right to speak for us, nor do they have any right to spend our money on political campaigns without our permission. They had no right to publicly endorse a candidate on behalf of all of us. They have overstepped their authority to speak for us and it should be stopped.
Sealaska and two other Alaska Native regional corporations will get back the millions of dollars they invested in a wireless telecommunications venture with AT&T Wireless.
