Former State Representative Gabrielle LeDoux, along with two others, was indicted by an Anchorage grand jury for multiple counts of voter misconduct in the first degree.

The June 2 indictment follows an investigation by the State Troopers and the FBI that began in 2018 after the Division of Elections identified irregularities in some absentee ballot applications and absentee ballots returned during the primary election that year.

LeDoux, along with Lisa (Vaught) Simpson, and Caden Vaught were each indicted on five counts of voter misconduct in the first degree and Vaught was indicted on four counts of voter misconduct in the first degree.  On June 10, 2021, all three defendants appeared in court and entered pleas of not guilty to the charges.  The date of their next court appearance has yet to be set.

If convicted, the defendants could face a maximum of 5 years in prison.

When first charged of the above crimes in March 2020, LeDoux took to Facebook, insisting that “The political establishment is trying to bring me down under false allegations. What they are spreading is FAKE NEWS.”

“I have stated clearly and honestly – that I never engaged in any illegal campaign activities – period,” she stated on March 15, 2020. “The political establishment will not stop until I am gone – but let them come, because I will fight to clear my name. I am fighting for you, and I ask you to stand with me and ignore this fake news.”

According to the original charging documents, LeDoux, Simpson and Vaught allegedly “knowingly provided false information on voter registration forms to show a residence address in House District 15, when there is evidence that Ms. Simpson and Mr. Vaught were not living, and had no intent to live, at the addresses provided at the time of the election.”

The charging documents also allege that Rep. LeDoux solicited a similar action by other individuals in 2014 in order to ensure they could vote in the House District 15 election.

Mired in controversy LeDoux lost her bid for reelection in 2020. In 2018, she won the Republican primary with 57% of the vote against Aaron Weaver, and won the general election with 42% of the vote against Democrat Lyn Franks who took 35% of the vote. Write-in candidate Jake Sloan had 24% of the vote.

    Isn’t that when we first started mail in voting? If so how many others will be indicated for the same thing?

  • JD says:

    Gabrielle Ledoux leads the list of “crooked Alaska politicians”. She is as guilty as they come. We can only hope that the consequences of her years of fraudulent and destructive behavior (not just in the recent past) will land her and her associates in state prison for the maximum time allowable after guilty verdicts.
    You deserve considerable time in the slammer, Gabby. There is no question about it.

  • J Scott says:

    Some things need to be vehemently ‘old school’ forever. Voting is something that needs to be made with an educated, intelligent understanding of what is at stake. Since there is no way to ‘enforce’ this, then at least making voting something that requires a mild inconvenience, to weed out the desperately negligent with a vote (who has become the target demographic for the Democratic Party, as they try to make voting so easy as to do away with security and verification processes). Make in-person voting (with qualified exceptions) constitutional.

    What most do not realize is that the silence on the DOMINION FRAUD HEIST by a sitting politician is regarded as complicit with the crime, This is treason. as those who took the oath of office swore to protect and defend the Constitution. By ignoring and hoping it would just go away as even the Governor said he would not investigate will have serious repercussions as that action was lending aid to an enemy… That is TREASON . TREASON in a time of war is the Death Penalty …. Maricopa will be a shock to those who could not muster the courage when their State and Nation needed them most. IT IS COMING……..

  • John J. Otness says:
