Demboski is a completely unqualified candidate who nonetheless has attracted the backing of the Koch brothers and of course our Baptist minister king maker Jerry Prevo.
But what if there were something about Amy Demboski that was not quite so pro-family values? You know perhaps something like a brief marriage and an attempt to force your former husband into paying child support for a child that was not his.
Because you know what? That is something that really happened.
According to an article in the Alaska Star:
Demboski grew up a military kid, lived in Japan, the Philippines and the East Coast before her family settled in the Eagle River area when she was 12. She graduated for Gruening Middle School and Chugiak High School, where she met her husband, Anchorage Fire Department captain Ben Demboski. They married in 1998, at the chapel at Elmendorf Air Force Base.
“Nothing impacted me more than growing up in the military,” she says. “Dad used to joke and say I was the most military kid that he knew.”
"The most military kid that he knew." Keep that phrase in mind.
You see before there was a Mr. Demboski in her life, there was a Mr. Dempsey, who the then Amy Lynn Hyatt married on October 27, 1995 in Witchita Falls, Texas, a year after she graduated high school.
Sadly for Amy her husband was immediately deployed, so they had precious little time together. In fact it appears that the future Mrs. Demboski did not even take her husband's name during that first marriage and within six months was asking for a dissolution.
Here is one of the documents dated April 2, 1996:

(resident 10/95 married, no child, 7/96 due)
(resident never lived w/Mr., Mr. not the father.)
"Mr. not the father?"
You see as it turns out Amy Lynn Hyatt found herself pregnant, with a child due in July of 1996, while her husband was deployed in England, and then claimed the baby was Mr. Dempsey's.
Mr. Dempsey was having none of it.
"I, Christian M. Dempsey, being duly sworn do hereby depose and say: (And this next part is hand written.) that I am not the father of the child to be born to Ms. Amy L. Hyatt in July 1996."
(I cropped out the top because it contained Mr. Dempsey's SSN.)
Wait, does that mean that the future Mrs. Demboski attempted to trap this man into paying child support, and providing military benefits for a child that was not even his?
Yes it looks that way.
Here is Mr. Dempsey asking to have the requirement of watching the video "Listen to the Children" waived because he was in England. Not to mention that the child WAS NOT HIS.

However Ms. Hyatt did not seem interested in letting Mr. Dempsey off the hook:

The Petition for Dissolution of the Marriage is denied, due to the Petitioner's failure to file an amendment as to Christian Dempsey not being the father of the child to be born.
Ultimately according to Court View the divorce was finalized on April 24, 1997.
Then in 1998 Amy Lynn Hyatt, marries Ben Demboski, and the rest, as they say, is history. And now that history is a little more complete.
To sum up, this conservative Anchorage mayoral candidate so respects Christian family values that she got knocked up while her brand new husband was overseas, and so respects the military that she fraudulently attempted to access child support and military benefits from the soldier even though she knew the child was not his.
And THAT my friends is who the Koch brothers are spending millions of dollars to support, and to whom Jerry Prevo just gave his stamp of approval.
Now you are probably asking, Gryph how did you come by all of this information?
Well to be honest, it arrived last night in the form of a phone call from an old friend of ours. And he has something he would like to say about all of this:
Politics is a dirty awful business, and politics in Alaska even more so. When you have a candidate for any office, that not only claims the moral high ground, but then turns around and attempts to subjugate the human rights of a whole group of folks, you have to ask yourself if they are that crazy or just that morally corrupt.
Well in the case of Anchorage mayoral candidate Amy Demboski the answer is she's just that morally corrupt. Having another man's baby while you're married is bad enough, but doing it while your husband is deployed defending his nation is inexcusable.
Hoping the world forgets about it and courting the Military, and Religious vote is just plain stupid.
Maybe somebody should ask Alaska Family Action, or Jerry Prevo what's worse, protecting the rights of a whole segment of our population (As Ethan Berkowitz wants to do.), or being an adulterer who fucks Jody when her husband is deployed defending this country since they claim the moral high ground and all.
(By the way, the name "Jody" is used as a derogatory term for any man who sleeps with a soldier's wife while he is deployed. I had to ask, cause I didn't know.)
Update: Mudflats is on the story as well, with even more information.
