Lawmaker could face formal rebuke for sexist comments

The Alaska House of Representatives is considering taking action against Rep. Zack Fields, D-Anchorage, for remarks he made on the floor of the House last month. A vote on the matter was delayed until Friday, but the call for the vote led to lengthy discussions among lawmakers.

Last month, Fields made a joke about Rep. Sara Rasmussen, R-Anchorage, during remarks made on the House floor while noting her birthday.

Fields later apologized for the joke, saying on Facebook he personally called Rasmussen to apologize.
