In the land of the bridge to nowhere, the mayor of Anchorage announced his candidacy for the U.S. Senate with a promise to restore open government. Mark Begich said he’d work to pass a Federal Transparency Act that would include financial disclosure of every dollar of income a senator and their spouse receives, and would require senators to post the information on the internet. It would also include posting every meeting between an elected official and a lobbyist on the web. (4/23/08)
