FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Bill Scannell offered his resignation today as campaign advisor to Jake Metcalfe, Democratic candidate for U.S. Congress. Metcalfe accepted the resignation.
According to Scannell, allegations that he was responsible for creating website links that were harmful to one of Metcalfe's opponents convinced him to resign.
"It appears these ridiculous allegations won't go away until I leap on my own sword,"
Scannell said. "I'm dedicated to getting Jake Metcalfe elected for the good of Alaska. If that takes my resignation, then so be it."
"Bill Scannell worked hard on my campaign and I appreciate all he did. It's now time for me to move on and discuss issues Alaskans really care about, and to focus on this race," said Jake Metcalfe.
This is the final comment the Metcalfe campaign will be making on this subject.
