TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - A failed city school board candidate in Tuscaloosa is arguing that sorority and fraternity members at the University of Alabama illegally swayed the election.
An attorney for Kelly Horwitz argued in court Tuesday that dozens of group members registered to vote illegally at the last minute.
Her lawyer, James Anderson, says some members were offered free bar admission and drinks after being told by group leaders they had to vote for Horwitz's opponent, former Alabama student government president Cason Kirby.
A lawyer for Kirby, Andrew Campbell, says the claims are nothing but unsubstantiated allegations. Campbell says there's no real evidence of wrongdoing.
Kirby defeated Horwitz for a city school board seat in August. A judge is deciding whether her election challenge can go forward.
