Opinion: Is Lisa Murkowski really a role model?

A lawmaker voted to convict a private citizen of insurrection without a hearing or witnesses.

Think of the irony. Lisa Murkowsk, a lawmaker, voted to convict a private citizen of insurrection without a hearing or witnesses. She ignored that house managers altered videos and text messages by House Managers. She had no objection to a partisan senator acting as judge and jurist.

What type of person abandons basic constitutional rights of the accused and is allowed to represent Alaskans in making laws that impact their lives?

Senator Murkowski is up for election in 2022 and Alaskans have to decide if she is worthy of their representation.
