Kennedy Loses 2 Votes, Still Wins

Item: Judge upholds CdA election result: Kennedy retains seat on council by 3 votes/Alison Boggs, SR.

More Info: The court’s finding, however, did reduce Kennedy’s winning margin to three votes instead of five. Six votes were found to be illegal due to residency issues. An agreement among attorneys led to three of them being thrown out – two for Kennedy and one for Brannon – which reduced the margin to four votes. Of the three remaining illegal votes, two of the voters testified they could not remember who they voted for, testimony that Hosack found to be credible. The last illegal voter testified that she thought she had “probably” voted for Kennedy, and Hosack threw that vote out as well, reducing the vote margin to three.

Question: How will Brannon & Co. spin this?
