Former Coeur d'Alene City Council candidate Jim Brannon, acting through his attorney Starr Kelso, has filed for a rehearing of his appeal to the Idaho Supreme Court. In a 7-page petition, Brannon challenged the portion of the adverse Supreme Court decision that dealt with absentee ballots. On Nov. 16, the Supreme Court ruled unanimously against Brannon's appeal of his 3-vote loss to incumbent Mike Kennedy in the 2009 municipal election. You can read the SR story re: that decision here.
