Election contest: Hendricks v. Todd, House District 54
I am now representing Patricia Todd in an election contest before a committee of the Alabama Democratic Party.
In the recent Democratic primary runoff in House District 54, Patricia Todd won by 59 votes over Gaynell Hendricks. Ms. Hendricks (through her mother-in-law) filed a contest with the Democratic Party alleging several grounds. Ms. Todd hired me to represent her, and I filed an answer. The hearing is set for 15 August. I will have more to say about the case after the hearing is concluded.
A recent article by Kyle Whitmire in the Birmingham Weekly recounts the background of the election contest. The Birmingham News has also carried articles on the case. I have excerpted from the articles on my Votelaw blog here, here, and here.
