"Election rigging scam"
In his indignation over Sarah Palin's loss, Tom Cotton is accused by GOP supporters of orchestrating a "scam to sway elections."
Using ranked-choice voting, Democrat Mary Peltola defeated former Republican Governor Sarah Palin in a special election for the U.S. House.
Sen. Tom Cotton, a Republican from Arkansas, criticised the new voting system that Alaskans passed.
Wednesday saw the first Alaska Native elected to Congress when Peltola, a former state senator, defeated Palin 51.5% to 48.5% in a special election to succeed the late Rep. Don Young, R-Alaska.
Voters adopted a ranked-choice voting method in 2020, making it the first time it was used in the state. Voters may rank candidates according to preference under the regulations,
which are also in effect in New York City and other places. The last-place contender is removed and their votes are redistributed if no candidate receives 50% of the vote.
