Anchorage Mayor Ethan Berkowitz (D) apologized for what he termed a “consensual, inappropriate messaging relationship” with Anchorage news anchor Maria Athens, the Anchorage Daily News reports.
Said Berkowitz: “I apologize to the people of Anchorage for a major lapse in judgment I made several years ago when I had a consensual, inappropriate messaging relationship with reporter Maria Athens. I’m embarrassed and ashamed for the hurt I’ve caused my family and our community. I take responsibility for my actions.”
Alaska Public Radio: “Athens prompted confusion and speculation Friday when she posted a video on her Facebook page claiming that according to reliable sources, Berkowitz had his ‘male genitalia’ posted on an underage girl’s website.”Save to Favorites
