Donate to the Sean Cockerham Hearing Aid Fund
In an article on the Anchorage Daily News web site, and in Sunday's print edition, ADN writer Sean Cockerham wrote, about Diane Benson's Saturday afternoon speech:
Berkowitz' opponent in the Democratic primary, Diane Benson, said in her speech that she's covered her tattoo and taken out her eyebrow piercing to look like a candidate.
What candidate Benson actually said was:
As candidates we dress for the job, and attempt to look the part while we hope to win. I wonder if I would have gotten a tattoo, or pierced my eyebrow and all those things if I had known I’d run for office someday. To run, I covered the tattoo and took out the eyebrow piercing, but underneath it all what am I? I am a woman who wants to change the face of politics – I want to see women safe, people fed, children educated, and jobs paid well. In my life I left the darkness of despair and walked into the light of hope.
Dear Pat. Dougherty,
Your Sunday web and print editions contain a serious error by one of your best reporters, Sean Cockerham. Please fix it. I'm starting a hearing aid fund for Sean. Would you care to contribute?
