Joe Miller speaks on handcuffing incident, work history

Joe Miller said last week that he would no longer answer questions about his background or personal life. But in an interview with CNN's John King on Monday, Alaska Senate candidate Joe Miller (R) responded to two recent, related controversies -- the handcuffing of a journalist by private security guards at one of his events and his use of government computers to campaign.

Guards hired by Miller's campaign detained and handcuffed Tony Hopfinger, editor of the online news outlet Alaska Dispatch, at a town hall inside an Anchorage public school on Sunday. An Anchorage Daily News reporter filmed the aftermath and was accused of "trespassing":

Hopfinger told KTUU that security pushed him as he tried to question Miller and that he pushed back.

Asked if the guards' response was excessive, Miller told CNN that Hopfinger was hounding him: "[T]he behavior that was demonstrated while I was there was assaultive. It was certainly over the top. There's no question that that hounding was something that shouldn't have happened. And it was unfortunate. But, you know, this was a professional team that was hired according to the contract that we had and -- and I'm sure that they did the right thing."

Hopfinger has been asking Miller about his time as a government lawyer. The former mayor of Fairbanks has claimed that when Miller stepped down from his post as a borough attorney, he was about to be fired for using government computers to campaign for the head of the Alaska Republican Party.

News organizations have sued Miller's campaign to get access to his personnel files from his time working at the Fairbanks North Star Borough.

Miller acknowledged to CNN that he was disciplined and said that the incident had nothing to do with his decision to leave his post. "Well, the event in question is something that happened on my time off," he said. "So it was during the lunch hour." He left, he said, because he disagreed with the "direction of that local government."

"I'll admit I'm a man of many flaws," Miller continued. "I'm not going to sit back and say that I've conducted my life perfectly. I will tell you that anything that I've done that's not right, it's been accounted for and it's been taken care of and I move on and I learn from mistakes."

jeffc6578 - Kidnapping? Do you have any clue of the legal definition? Or are you a typical leftist who thinks they know everything? And it's better to be a tea-Bagger, than a Tea-Baggee - such as yourself.

Why haven't Millers goons been arrested on Federal kidnapping charges?
If his goons can detain people against their will in public places, the Constitution doesn't mean jack shi.
So much for the freedom loving law and order tea baggers. What they really want is pure anarchy - they piss on our Constitution.

Someone needs to tell Crazy Joe Miller that it's far past time for him to quit hiding behind his beard and start answering some serious questions. This is a general election not a Teabagger primary, people have the right to know whether or not he's (Miller) an anti govt hypocrite who can't hold a job.

Politics, beanbag, Crazy Joe. Life outside the confines of the primary and the Teabaggers gets a little rough, and when you say outrageous things about Medicare, Social Security, unemployment benefits and other entitlement programs being unconstitutional, you're opening yourself up to scrutiny, and people are going to find out that you're a hypocrite, bilking the state to get a cheap hunting license, taking farm subsidies you condemn, and your family unemployment benefits, or Medicaid that you call unconstitutional.

Not that ethics or fitness to serve seems to get in the way with the Palin cabal. They're like a bunch of mini-Roves, with about half the brain power, smart enough to cook up ratfreaking schemes but not smart enough to cover their tracks.

One has to wonder why the Press has basically not conducted a more aggressive question & answer challenge to these 138 Tea Party candidates. What, exactly, anymore, IS the role of the Press w/out advancing the argument, in finality, that the Tea Partiers are a bunch of hypocrites who haven't the courage or moral stamina to enter the political arena without these challenges to their "schtick" and "blah, blah, blahing" about the Constitution & how they're all for Free Speech, etc.
It appears that none of the major media have the courage that this young reporter had. Joe Miller's full of it, if he believes that he was working on "lunch time" and able to politic, for personal political gain, using government computers. A moron knows that's a conflict of interest. And, the appearance of a conflict of interest is, in fact, "a conflict of interest."
Hopefully this event will prompt more of the mainstream media to challenge Angle, Fiorino, Miller, O'Donnell, Paladino, and God know's what other of this crowd, who want to represent their constituencies in Congress.
My guess is, the Right Wingers of the Right Wing Party are not so different, in the final anaysis, than the Sturmabteilung (SA), or "Brown Shirts" of the Third Reich. There was an incident, of course, in Nevada, where Angle supporters attacked a woman who was not.
As the election gets down to the last two weeks, expect the pressure to cause some of the more tender hearted to break under the strain. That's exactly when main line media reporters should demand that these characters answer questions.
The American people have the right to demand that anyone who goes to Congress is fit. And, don't be a bit surprised if some of these Tea Baggers get into office ... and completely block legislation moving forward.
All of this is just deserts for the GOP. Too pussilanimous to register displeasure, the GOP is now held hostage to maniacs & brutes.

It is my understanding that this “Tea Party” crowd is all about the First Amendment; one just has to harken back to the vote on health care reform and how Tea Party followers “hounded” members of Congress as they went to cast their votes. In my view arrests were warranted in that instance but none occurred. After watching the video of the reporter and the actions of the goons hired by Mr. Miller, one can reasonably conclude that when it comes to the Tea Party, the First Amendment only applies when it is advantage – Tea Party; what a mob of hypocritical idiots.

Being a journalist is not an excuse for bad behavior bordering on harrassment and assault. The pursuit of a story is not a license to break the law. So he got cuffed for a few minutes, so what? Anyone else acting in the same manner would have and should have been detained by security also, journalist or not. The only reason this is a story is because journalists LOVE stories about other journalists.

Do not speak out; say nothing bad about our boy Joe! Joe’s bully boys will swoop to cuff and arrest you! Joe’s thoughts and ideas are his alone!

Joe’s into Tea! Joe really has no preference to the type of tea he drinks as long as the water has the tea look. A connoisseur of tea Joe isn’t! Like a dog sniffing the backside of another dog, it is all in the beholders nose!

Due to the discovery of our reader older_wiser we can reveal that the business license for "Dropzone Security Services", 3701 SPENARD ROAD, ANCHORAGE AK 99503, owned by William F. Fulton expired on 31/12/2009 and was NOT renewed!

The company belonging Mr. Fulton, who was pictured in the above clips, is currently not licensed for providing security services. Joe Miller therefore employed the services of a "rogue" security company, so to speak. ;-)
http://palingates.blogspot.com/2010/10/breaking-news-from-sarah-palins-alaska.html


The 'security detail' has no valid license and does the odd bounty hunter job now and again. This photo was on the My Space page of one of the men in the security detail aka a non licensed goon squad. Its of a woman and two kids looking on as her huband and the kids father is threatend by three armed goons.The guy took the photo down but not before a blogger got a screen shot of it.

To the trained eye, the story is clear.

A cooler containing beer of a Not-Miller variety was found on the property, ascertained to be a threat to the security of the Joe Miller for Senate campaign and was met with immediate and effective counter-measures in a threat-justified response from the DropZone corps of Liberty Warriors.

Poor Joe, his delusions of grandeur are just too darn strong and getting the better of him. In his demented little mind he's so important and such a target that he wastes his supporters hard earned money hiring at least six make believe secret service agents to protect him from the media. The real law enforcement officer was laughing his butt off after he heard what Joe's fantasy clown squad had done to Hopfinger prior to clamping on the cuffs. Looks like Joe's going to be using quite a bit more of their money hiring lawyers to defend himself and his clown squad on the civil claims false arrest and imprisonment, kidnapping and the other charges any lawyer will certainly be able to come up with. The CNN footage shows off the clown squad at their best. Oh, poor. poor Joe!

I can't stand the radical agenda that President Obama has attempted and partially succeeded in implementing in this great nation. However, I think Joe Miller ought to drop out of the Senate race. If he gets elected to the Senate, he must feel the heat of reporters asking questions. His goons could have nudged the reporter a bit if he was getting physical but I think the handcuffing and detaining was totally unwarranted.

I find it ironic that some conservatives who claim such affinity for the Constitution see no problem with handcuffing a member of the press.

Call me a RINO, call me a liberal, call me a communist, I don't care... I'm ardently pro-life, for traditional marriage, pro-family, and fiscally conservative and a lifelong Republican, but I think the act of handcuffing by a candidate's private security force is very troubling and has some very bad symbolism to it too. It looks like fascism to me.

Joe Miller is a disgrace and I question his (and a few other candidates this year) use of the Constitution. I feel he and is hiding a very dark agenda behind the Constitution; a mockery.

I'm voting straight Republican this year very enthusiastically, but I'm glad I don't live in Alaska. I'd end up voting for Murkowski, but I think the three candidates are lousy: an Obama liberal, a corrupt and flawed Murkowski, and a thug.
