TUSCALOOSA, Ala.(AP) - A judge says there's no evidence fraternity and sorority members at the University of Alabama were wrongly cajoled into voting in a city school board election in Tuscaloosa.
Claims that students received offers of alcohol and other perks to vote are part of a challenge filed by school board candidate Kelly Horwitz after Cason Kirby defeated her for a seat in August.
But Circuit Judge Jim Roberts said during a hearing Thursday there's no evidence of such misconduct. He says he's only heard what he calls "bold allegations."
Roberts says he will still allow Horwitz's election lawsuit to go forward challenging the residency of dozens of student voters. Those claims could still result in a decision overturning election results, although Kirby says he's looking forward to taking office next week.
