Joe Miller Admits To Having Been Disciplined For Ethics Violations

Alaska Republican Senate candidate Joe Miller has admitted to having been disciplined for ethics violations as he backed down on his previous statement that he wouldn’t answer questions about his past:

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.”

While this is hardly an earth-shattering revelation, it doesn’t help his campaign a day after reports that his campaign handcuffed a reporter.
