A former Microsoft contractor, whose Twitter account was closed briefly last year when the social media company thought he was a Russian bot, has made a public records request to the FBI for information about the late Charlie Chang.
Chang, who died Sept. 11, according to Rep. Gabrielle LeDoux, was hired by LeDoux to bring in 100 absentee ballots from District 15 so that she would be ensured a primary win against challenger Aaron Weaver. LeDoux paid Chang $10,000 and two round-trip tickets to Anchorage from Fresno, Calif., where Chang was a known Democratic Party activist.
LeDoux traveled to San Francisco, Calif. on Aug. 28, and returned to Anchorage on Sept. 10, one day after Chang had a massive stroke, and one day before he died. She announced his death to the media on Sept. 12 from Anchorage.
