The voters in Rep. Lindsay Holmes’ district should be furious with Ms. Holmes’ deceitful tactics. She ran as a Democrat, then when in Juneau she applied to switch parties. Of course, the Republican Party was delighted to accept her, and she now sits on the powerful Finance Committee — an option not open to her as a Democrat.
This was outright disenfranchisement of Holmes’ constituents, and they should demand her recall. A special election should be held, with Holmes running in the party of her choice, to determine if that is the party of her district’s choice. We cannot accept fraud in our electoral system.
