Alaska gubernatorial candidate Bill Walker’s campaign has disputed the authorship of a 2004 letter to the editor calling for a state income tax in Alaska. A man claiming to be another Bill Walker (identified by the Walker for Governor campaign as William C. Walker) has come forward on a Blogspot blog with the username “Mo ‘Poxy”, taking credit for the 2004 letter – though the user’s identity is unclear.
Ultimately it is up to the voters of Alaska to decide if candidate Bill Walker actually wrote the letter to the editor. They should be reminded, though, that Bill Walker, unlike Sean Parnell, has not ruled out higher taxes by signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge.
