GOP Lawmaker Likely Ineligible for Office

“An Anchorage judge said that based on the limited evidence presented, Wasilla Rep. David Eastman (R) is likely ineligible to hold public office, but his name will stay on the general election ballot until a trial scheduled for December can be held,” the Anchorage Daily News reports.

“Eastman’s membership in the Oath Keepers runs afoul of the Alaska Constitution’s disloyalty clause, which bars a person from holding public office in Alaska who advocates for the overthrow by force of the U.S. or state government.”
