JUNEAU, Alaska Carol Hafner is on the Democratic primary ballot for an Alaska U.S. House seat.
She doesn't live in Alaska. In fact, she's never been to the state. Hafner, who listed New Jersey and South Dakota addresses in her candidate filing, says she's serious about running, though she doesn't plan to campaign in person.
Democratic officials are questioning her authenticity and political affiliation.
Under the U.S. Constitution, to serve in Congress one must meet age and citizenship requirements and inhabit the state at the time elected. Generally, Alaska candidates in such races are from the state. But not always. (snip)
Hafner listed on her candidacy filing a home and mailing address in New Jersey. She also listed an address at a mail-drop location in South Dakota popular with RVers and others with more transient lifestyles as her campaign contact on Alaska's website listing of candidates. Public records show property and voter registration records for Hafner in New Jersey.
The New Jersey addresses match those used by Eric Hafner during a failed run as a Democrat in an Oregon U.S. House primary earlier this year, which caught the attention of Julie Olsen, an Anchorage Democratic party leader. She said she was worried that Eric Hafner had "hijacked" Carol Hafner's identity and created an online persona to file for office. Olsen supports Shein.
Hafner, 64, said Eric Hafner is her son. She said he also ran unsuccessfully in the Republican primary for a U.S. House seat in Hawaii in 2016. Efforts to reach him were unsuccessful.

Even more of a carpetbagger than Mitt Romney or Hillary Clinton. Wow.
Or McCain. He shopped for a seat in a state he had no ties to.
I don’t see a problem with this.
In a world where Mad Maxine can live in a mansion that is not in her district....
And in a world where illegal aliens can vote in US elections....
Then why not allow some broad from outta state to run for a seat in Alaska?
Go north, the rush is on.
CooCoo! CooCoo! CooCoo!!!
She doesnt live in Alaska, but shes got Klondike bars in the freezer.
TYPICAL LYING DEMOCRAT!!!
She made a BAKED ALSAKA one time.
Maybe she’s that made-up, composite ‘girlfriend’ of 0bama’s?
Liberals Lie. It’s what they do.
Hillary was elected to the senate in New York and she wasnt a resident
Pete Visclosky, Democrat Congressman for the 1st District in Indiana has not lived in the District for 50 years - he left for college at 18 he is now 68. He uses his parents address as his legal residence. The Democrat idiots in Indiana keep electing old Pete no matter what...
They are such POS.
One must meet the residency requirement to serve, to be in office. I don’t know that the Constitution requires that a candidate live there while running. In fact, if memory serves, some judges have said that it does not.
She got confused. She heard someone say a rumor about a female friend.
They said “I’ll ask her!”.
Sounds like the Hafners are determined to get on the congressional gravy train, and it doesn’t matter what means they use.
She can see Russia from her house.
