Complaint: Alaska Democrats give undeclared aid to independents

The Alaska Democratic Party has been giving undeclared assistance to “nonpartisan” and other candidates. Along with Ship Creek Group, a campaign company based in Anchorage, the Democratic Party has been allowing them to gain a $2,000 advantage over their competitors in races by giving them access to valuable lists, according to a complaint filed with the Alaska Public Offices Commission on Thursday.

Call it list laundering. While some candidates, like Rep. Ivy Spohnholz, paid full value for the data, others, like non-declared Jason Grenn, got the service for pennies on the dollar by going through Ship Creek Group.

It’s illegal, alleges Forrest McDonald, who at times has been a candidate but now mainly runs local and state campaigns. He told the Alaska Public Offices Commission this week that Ship Creek Group has been giving candidates access to a database owned by the National Democratic Party, and that is valued at $2,000 for every client they give it to. Neither candidates nor the party are disclosing the relationship to the watchdog agency.
