The fat lady has sung - just don't tell the town's a secret. The losers in the General Election actually think they're going to fight the will of the people and challenge the election, now that they couldn't buy the victory with Jerry's money or scare the voters into submission with lies about disincorporating the town. But, throwing even more money into an election challenge over alleged residency or money owed to the town had to be done BEFORE the election. 

Unlike calling a primary election "special" when it was not, and then swearing in a usurper in the back room, in this case, there's no legal leg to stand on. Sorry barf bagger - you blog posts are just wishful hallucinations!

The town has refused to put the minor administrative detail of accepting the county's canvass of the vote, or swear in the winners on Tuesday morning's Council agenda as if it's going to delay the inevitable. 

Hey, all you cabal supporters, do you hear what I hear? The fat lady is singing...
