Demboski Says at Anchorage Assembly She Has No Reason to Apologize to Muslim Family
Look, it’s a twisted Trumpelina, full of fear and blustery bigotry targeting a political opponent.
A couple who say they’ve been harassed after an Anchorage Assembly member posted a misleading blog post suggesting they could be associated with a supposed terrorist compound in the Mat-Su Borough demanded an apology at Tuesday’s Assembly meeting.
In the emotional exchange, the Assembly member, Amy Demboski, defended herself and said she’d done nothing wrong. She wouldn’t say she was sorry, but the chair of the Assembly tearfully apologized to the couple on behalf of the entire body.
Gregory Jones and his wife, Maleika Jones, said they wanted to speak to the Assembly in response to what he called “negative propaganda” shared and promoted by Demboski through her talk show last week.
