“New details are emerging in the stunning tale of inappropriate behavior between an Alaskan politician and a television anchor, death threats and nude photos. The scandal culminated in a joint police and FBI investigation, the arrest of the journalist and the resignation of the mayor of Anchorage.
Ethan Berkowitz, the top elected Democrat in Alaska, submitted his resignation to the Anchorage Assembly on Tuesday night, just days after he vehemently denied allegations by YourAlaskaLink anchor Maria Athens that he had posted nude photos of himself on an underage website.
The mayor’s resignation followed Berkowitz’s jaw-dropping admission Monday that he was involved in an inappropriate sexting – he called it “messaging” – relationship with Athens, the anchor of a combined Fox/ABC station in Anchorage. She says their relationship started in 2016, and declined to say whether it ever became sexual in nature.” – CBS NEWS
