Alabama: the election-night screw-up that fueled the H.D. 54 election contest
Kyle Whitmire writes in the Birmingham Weekly: Last Thursday, Gaynell Hendricks held a press conference in front of the Jefferson County Courthouse where her supporters in her plain sight accused white people of stealing the election for Todd.
I too was accused of fixing the election. This might stem from the fact that, in addition to being white, I, unlike nearly everyone on Hendricks' campaign staff, showed up at the courthouse on election night to watch the returns being counted.
This is what I saw. -- Birmingham Weekly Online
Disclosure: I represent Patricia Todd, the winner of the election, in the contest filed by Hendricks' mother-in-law.
