A petition has been filed in Adair Circuit Court today to void the Wet-Dry Election held Tuesday, March 22, 2016. The petition maintains that officials erred in setting the day less than 30 days after the Republican Party Caucus held on March 5, 2016.
The petitioners/contestors are Chris Coomer, Jeanni Abston, Ronnie C. Rodgers, and Charles E. Handy who are represented by Counsel David C. Nunery of Nunery & Call, PLLC, Campbellsville, KY. (Author's note: Two individuals requested name clarification -- petitioner Chris Coomer is not the one at Jane's Fertilizer, and Jeanni Abston is not the one who works at Betty's OK Country Cooking).
Named in the suit is the Adair County Board of Elections and its members, Billy Curry, Lisa Greer, Benjamin Loy, and Harrison Moss.
The petition maintains that because the Kentucky "republican party caucus/primary election" was held on March 5, 2016" and claims "The local option election was held within 30 days of the regular political election held on March 5, 2016 in violation of KRS 242.030(3).
The petition asks, as a remedy: "The Petitioners the local option held March 22, 2016, be declared void as a matter of law, their costs expended herein, and any other relief to which the petitioners be entitled.
We will have more on the story as available on ColumbiaMagazine.com and by listening to Larry Smith of FM 99.9, the Big Dawg, and FM 92.7 The WAVE.
