The Gradual Implosion Of Joe Miller's Campaign

The Republican candidate for U.S. Senate from Alaska can't seem to catch a break. First you have Miller's "security detail" arresting and detaining a blogger/journalist at a campaign event: P
rivate security guards working for Joe Miller, the Tea Party Senate candidate who defines himself as a constitutional conservative, handcuffed and detained the editor of an Alaska news website who was attempting to ask Miller a question at a public town hall event Sunday.

Tony Hopfinger, editor of Alaska Dispatch, says he was thrown against a wall and handcuffed by men wearing suits with Dropzone Security Services, which is employed by the Miller campaign. we have Miller reversing his previous statements on alleged ethics violations:
Republican U.S. Senate nominee Joe Miller acknowledged Monday that he was disciplined for violating the Fairbanks North Star Borough's ethics policy in 2008 when he was a part-time borough lawyer.

The statement, made in an interview on CNN, represents a reversal for Miller, who vowed last week not to answer any questions about his past after questions were raised about his borough work history. Miller, while continuing to refuse to speak with the Daily News and some other Alaska news media, went on CNN on Monday and conceded to anchor John King that he had been disciplined.

"John, I'll admit I'm a man of many flaws. I'm not going to sit back and say that I've conducted my life perfectly," Miller told the CNN anchor. "I will tell you that anything that I've done that's not right, it's been accounted for and it's been taken care of and I move on and I learn from mistakes."
It looks like Lisa Murkowski may not lose her seat after all...
