Begich Gets Boomeranged

Sen. Mark Begich (D-AK) Has Listed The Address Of His Washington, D.C. Home On His Federal Election Commission Filings. “Sen. Mark Begich (D-Alaska) listed the address of his Washington, D.C. home rather than his Anchorage home on Federal Election Commission filings—a choice that could muddle attacks Begich has made on whether his opponent has close enough ties to Alaska. Begich listed his Capitol Hill address for reimbursements on a number of publicly available FEC forms over the past year.” (Cameron Joseph, “Begich Listed DC Address For FEC Reimbursements,” The Hill, 9/10/14)

  • The Hill Headline: “Begich Listed DC Address For FEC Reimbursements” (Cameron Joseph, “Begich Listed DC Address For FEC Reimbursements,” The Hill, 9/10/14)

Begich Also Uses His Washington, D.C. Address On His Anchorage Property Records. “This isn’t the only time Begich has opted to use his D.C. address over his one in Anchorage — he also lists his D.C. address as the mailing address on Anchorage municipal property records.” (Cameron Joseph, “Begich Listed DC Address For FEC Reimbursements,” The Hill, 9/10/14)

Begich Has Lived In A Million-Dollar Washington, D.C. Home Since Shortly After His Election

After His Election To The Senate, Begich Confirmed His Plans To Move His Family To Washington.  “The all-day commute to Alaska (3,760 air miles, via Seattle) and its remoteness (four time zones from the Capitol) suggest the challenges inherent in representing the 50-year-old Last Frontier. The detail-oriented Begich uses ‘plane time’ to work and study legislation. He plans to move his family to Washington.” (Katherine Skiba, “Alaska’s Mark Begich, A Pro-Gun Democrat Who Wants To Open Up Arctic Drilling,” U.S. News, 3/5/09)
