Illegal CdA Voters Fined $200 Each

Item: Illegal voters fined, sentenced: Hayden couple voted illegally in 2009 Cd'A city election/Tom Hasslinger, CdA Press

More Info: A Hayden couple was each fined $200 and sentenced to three months of probation for illegally voting in the Nov. 3, 2009, Coeur d'Alene general election. Ronald Prior and Susan Harris both entered Alford pleas on July 15 after each was charged with one count of illegally registering to vote. An Alford guilty plea means the defendant doesn't admit guilt but admits there is enough evidence for a conviction.

Question: Beyond wasting a lot of money, changing a vote or two, and catching 2 illegal voters, what did the long-running lawsuit filed by losing challenger Jim Brannon accomplish?
