On this day in 1784, the Russian fur trader Grigory Shelikhov storms a Kodiak Island Alutiit refuge rock on Sitkalidak Island, killing over 500 Alutiit. The consequent subjugation of the Alutiiq on Kodiak Island allows Shelikhov to establish the first permanent Russian settlement in Alaska at Three Saints Bay.
The firing came a week after Michael Gableman, who had led the investigation, joined former president Donald Trump in turning against Speaker Robin Vos amid the veteran Wisconsin politician’s effort to fend off a primary challenge from the right.
The haphazard, year-old inquiry was marked by meetings with conspiracy theorists, violations of the state’s public records laws and a call by Gableman to explore the legally impossible task of decertifying the election results.It did not uncover evidence of widespread fraud, though Trump and Gableman tried to suggest otherwise.
Mary Spicuzza of the Journal Sentinelposted the letter from Vos to Gableman:
Vos plays all this straight, after Gableman has repeatedly played Vos for a fool. (Admittedly, not a hard skill to master.)
Vos might have ended this sad arrangement with a nicer touch for those unceremoniously sacked: Good luck in your future endeavors.
