Alaska AG ousted in sexting scandal

Alaska’s attorney general, Kevin Clarkson, 61, a Republican, resigned Tuesday, Aug. 25, 2020, after it became public that he sent more than 500 personal messages, many suggestive, to a female state employee. Clarkson’s office is not elective, so he’s an appointee of the governor, and his resignation was requested. He’d been put on leave after news media got wind of it and began investigating. Clarkson believed he had a relationship with the woman, and still doesn’t think the text messaging was inappropriate, but she had told him to stop. She didn’t work for him, but they had work interactions. Read story here.
