The election in House District 15 took another bizarre twist Tuesday -- with 26 absentee ballots considered by the Alaska Division of Elections as "suspect" counted in favor of incumbent Gabrielle LeDoux.
Since the state primary election last Tuesday, LeDoux has overcome a three-vote deficit to a lead of 87 votes, after question and absentee ballots were counted. The Division of Elections says that's not counting the 26 suspected ballots.
The Department of Law's criminal division says it's not commenting on the race. When asked to cite a legal reason why he cannot confirm whether a criminal investigation exists, the division director did not respond to the question.
