Childs’s allegiance to GOP scrutinized
Ex-Democrat seeks Frank’s House seat
If Brookline psychiatrist and Republican Elizabeth Childs happens to win the race to succeed US Representative Barney Frank in Congress, the rigidly conservative Republicans who control the US House might have reason to wonder about her party allegiance. That’s because Childs has been either a registered Democrat or an unenrolled voter for the last two decades. And she has voted in 11 Democratic state and presidential primaries since 1996, according to a review of her voting records in the Town of Brookline.
