I worked for Bill for seven years. My last job while working for him was as his (and the Allvest Vice President for Operations') Executive Assistant. That was around the time the picture of him at the left was taken.
We argued a lot. About Allvest policy, about how to word parts of the many proposals the staff wrote, searching for the next government contract for one program or another. And just about anything. I must have been a very frustrating employee for Bill to have to put up with.
One of the things I argued with Bill about was whether or not he should have anything to do with Jerry Ward. My side of the argument - don't touch Ward with a ten-foot pole - lost.
If I were Bill, I'd hire a first-rate bodyguard very, very soon. Bill may be one of the dirtiest operators in Alaska history. What he's been charged with today by the U.S. Department of Justice isn't the tip of the iceberg. It is the tip of the tip of the iceberg.
Weimar's past creative manipulation of funds touches both major political parties in Alaska.
