Murkowski statement on Arne Fuglvog

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Senator Lisa Murkowski reacts to news that Arne Fuglvog violated a fishing regulation before he joined her staff:

"Prior to joining my staff, Arne Fuglvog violated a fishing regulation by misstating the location where he caught sablefish. I accepted his resignation Sunday, and he will plead guilty to this charge as part of a plea agreement.

"Arne served Alaskans for the past five years on my staff and for over a decade before that in his public service work in fisheries. I thank him for his years of service, but he knows the importance and value of our fisheries, and he also knows what all fishermen understand: fishing laws and regulations must be followed.

"Arne has cooperated fully with the authorities, taken responsibility for his actions, and accepted the consequences."

This is a shame if this is the only reason he resigned. Spend enough time fishing and you will make a mistake.

Cheaters eventually get caught especially if they are not very smart.

Lisa Murkowski lied and protected, and paid Arne Fuglvog after she knew he was being investigated. Lisa stated that she had no knowledge until after the fact. Shannyn Moore (mud flats), and John Enge (Alaska cafe), uncovered the fact that Lisa Murkowski, had received emails telling her that Arne Fuglvog was being investigated a year before she said she was informed. Lisa continued to pay, and protect Fuglvog, despite knowing of his impending doom.
We believe that Lisa was trying to cover up Fuglvogs fate until after the election. Lisa stalled the investigation by NMFS,
Until after the election. Lisa is guilty of election FRAUD.
