Scam to rig elections

GOP supporters accuse Tom Cotton of using a "scam to manipulate elections" in his outrage over Sarah Palin's defeat.

After Democrat Mary Peltola beat former Republican Governor Sarah Palin in a special U.S. House election decided by ranked-choice voting,

Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., lashed out at Alaska's new voter-approved voting method.

In a special election to replace the late Rep. Don Young, R-Alaska, Peltola, a former state lawmaker, defeated Palin 51.5% to 48.5%, becoming the first Alaska Native elected to Congress on Wednesday.

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.

Until someone receives a majority of the votes, the procedure is repeated.
