Sojourner: ‘Re-tabulate vote, name me senator’

Lawmakers as early as Friday could resolve election challenges that have kept a House and Senate seat vacant more than two months after state elections and kept the Legislature in limbo for nearly two weeks…

…Sojourner, when asked by committee member Sen. Joey Fillingane what remedy she was asking from the Senate with her case, choked back tears as she answered.

“With every ounce of respect I have,” she said. “I am asking that due to illegal and improper willfully intended actions at the Bude precinct … Based on that margin of votes alone, that you disqualify those votes, that you re-tabulate the vote and name me the senator for District 37. That is my prayerful wish from this court.”
