A potential investigation hangs over an Alaska State House Republican primary after the race came down to a few votes, but irregularities like 17 voter registrations that trace back to a single mobile home address caught the attention of the Alaska Division of Elections.
Incumbent Gabrielle LeDoux leads challenger Aaron Weaver by 113 votes after Tuesdays election, but at least 26 absentee ballots for LeDoux are classified as suspect by the state Division of Elections, reported KTVA.
The state Republican Party Chairman Tuckerman Babcock is calling for an investigation. LeDoux fell out of favor with her party in 2016 after she abandoned the Republican caucus.
The 17 Republican voter registrations linked to a single mobile home are in a section of House District 15 that is home to members of the Chinese Hmong community. A woman who answered the door of the mobile home and identified herself as Laura Chang told KTVA she did not know many of the people who registered to vote using the address.
Another mobile home in the same park has 14 registered Republicans according to voter registrations, reported Anchorage Daily News.
The irregularities in voter registrations appear to trace back to a single man, Charlie Chang. LeDoux reportedly flew Chang up from California and paid him $10,000 to help get out the vote in the Hmong community in her district in July, according to campaign finance reports cited by KTVA.
I hired him for a number of elections, for several elections, and I have no reason to think that hes done anything wrong, LeDoux told Anchorage Daily News.
Chang himself is registered to vote with an address in a mobile home in the Hmong neighborhood although other documentation states he lives in California, reported KTVA.
State attorney Margaret Paton-Walsh admitted there was evidence of voter fraud Monday, reported Alaska Public Media. Elections results are set to be certified Saturday.
LeDoux had a three-vote deficit on election night Tuesday but passed Weaver when absentee and other ballots were counted.
Democrat election fraud is “confusion.”
No big deal. Just a simple misunderstanding.
“Another mobile home in the same park has 14 registered Republicans according to voter registrations, reported Anchorage Daily News.”
Doesn’t mean their ballots voted Republican.
In a Republican primary???
Does when it’s a primary. They may vote replublican for the primary but may not BE republicans. Just requested an R ballot.
Loved his movies.
Are those Chinese legal citizens?
But wait - MSM tells us that election fraud is a hoax, there are no fraudulent voters. Riiiight...
Are those Chinese legal citizens?
So, the liberal, leftists of any stripe are going to cheat to win, and then kill us.
Another reason to have voter ID laws
Okay, let’s make a deal.
This voting stuff is out of hand. Let’s both equally root out vote fraud and illegal alien voting by having one photo ID voter card issued to every voter. Dem or GOP,socialist or libertarian or anything.
I can’t remember the list but a radio talk guy once listed where he absolutely must have a photo ID with no exceptions allowed. Something like Rx at pharmacy, getting lab tests as ordered by doctor,air travel,being stopped by law enforcement officer,applying for senior discount bus card, nearly any activity at a university including parking permit and many others. But if GOP says voter ID is needed, Dems cry:
unfair! Intrusion of citizens’ rights to privacy, racist!
Why? Do they want certain people to get to vote many times illegally?
The RATS always say....
*** VOTE EARLY AND VOTE OFTEN ***
Putting the name of the “other” party on fake registrations would be smart cover for the move if caught. Whatever the registrations I believe that if enough ballots are thrown out to be more than the margin of victory then all they can maybe rerun the election. Tainting only one candidate with rejected secret ballots may be an act just as corrupt as the false registrations.
They are at least legal immigrants and probably citizens.
Democrats vote in Republican primaries to nominated the weaker candidate. Happens all the time. That’s how Missouri got Todd “Rape Rape” Aiken.
Dems can vote in a Republican primary, I believe, but not the other way around. Something I could never understand.
In Alaska, only registered Republicans or those registered as non partisan or independent may vote a Republican ballot.
