Inciter in Chief to host February fundraiser for far-right U.S. senate candidate Tshibaka

Following a deluge of bombshell news stories about Donald Trump-related criminal investigations in New York, including the Manhattan district attorney’s convening of a special grand jury — the inciter of the January 6, 2021 armed insurrection endorsed Kelly Tshibaka for U.S. Senate in June.

In the wake of Trump’s endorsement, the far-right “Alaskan” candidate for the U.S. Senate will head to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in Florida for a February ’22 fundraiser, according to the Associated Press.

“It’s a great honor to have the endorsement and enthusiastic support of President Trump and I am thrilled that he will be hosting this event,” Tshibaka said in a statement.

Tshibaka is the wife of Niki Tshibaka, Mayor Bronson’s Chief Human Resources Officer for the Municipality of Anchorage.

A longtime member of the far-right Anchorage-based Save Anchorage Facebook group, Tshibaka has cast doubt on the results of the 2020 election and was the subject of scrutiny when she penned a Must Read Alaska op-ed last November. The op-ed echoed several of Trump’s unfounded voter fraud claims, including that thousands of dead people voted and that a voting machine “glitch” had switched votes from Trump to Biden, which she called “credible.”

Last December, a month after her op-ed, Tshibaka openly called for another state to sue Alaska to overturn its election results.

“Texas is suing 4 Swing States for unlawfully enacting last-minute changes to their election laws due to COVID, thereby skewing the results of the 2020 General Election. If TX prevails, Alaska’s 2020 election results can also be revisited: the AK Supreme Court changed election rules for absentee ballots after our voting had already begun,” Tshibaka wrote in one screenshot, posted to Twitter by Alaskan Attorney Scott Kendall last December.

In April, Tshibaka was asked by CNN whether she agreed with former president Donald Trump that he had won the 2020 presidential election. She responded, “We don’t know the outcome of the 2020 election.”

In July, a source who was on an Alaska Airlines flight from Anchorage to Fairbanks with Tshibaka alleged that the Alaska Senate hopeful and sometimes tongue speaker had cracked a “distasteful joke” about President Joe Biden.

According to the source, Tshibaka, while wearing a paper mask on her chin and boarding the plane, saw someone she knew in first-class and said, “If Uncle Joe knew we were all here, this plane would be targeted!” likely implying that the President of the United States would shoot the plane down. Tshibaka’s “joke” went over well with those around the candidate who are said to have “chuckled” at the joke.

Also in April, national news outlets reported that Tshibaka once wrote in support of an “ex-gay” Christian organization that promoted discredited “conversion therapy” and said that homosexuality was caused by “sexual molestation during childhood.”

The story was picked up by Alaska Public Media, who noted that Tshibaka had also described the “Twilight” books and movies as evil.

A November 1 poll conducted by Alaska Survey Research found that Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski was leading Tshibaka by 20 points, up 5 points from a previous poll conducted in August.
