Don Young’s A-Team


Murdock, Hannibal, Face, and B.A. Baracus? Not that A-Team. Josh Marshall got his hands on the “Intern’s Survival Guide” for the office of Alaska Rep. Don Young, currently under investigation for, among other things, inserting an earmark for the Coconut Road in Florida. The key to the survival guide is the list of “A-Team” lobbyists who can talk to anyone in the office, at any time. The list includes Coconut Road lobbyist Rick Alcade. The “A-Team” section of the guide ends with this sentence, “I recommend looking up who they are.”

(FYI: Don Young was elected to Congress the same year that the fictional A-Team was convicted of a crime they didn’t commit: 1972.)
