Alaska legislator who killed oil-tax bill to plead guilty to bribery

Former state Rep. Beverly Masek has agreed to plead guilty to conspiring to receive a bribe, according to documents filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Anchorage. She was accused of taking $4,000 to kill the bill. Masek, a Republican from Willow who represented the Matanuska-Susitna area between 1995 and 2004, was accused by the Justice Department of accepting at least $4,000 from former Veco Corp. chief executive Bill Allen in 2003.
