St Louis County Election Board spends thousands of dollars to force do-over from April election

ST. LOUIS COUNTY, MO (KPLR) - A You Paid For It follow up on new developments after last April's debacle by the St Louis County Election Board.

Now the board of commissioners will weigh whether to drop their court effort to force a redo of an election in Sunset Hills.

This comes after a judge has rejected the Election Board's attempt to force a do-over for the mayor's race in the City Of Berkeley.

Mayor Ted Hoskins won the race by 13 votes. He would have had to run the race over if the St. Louis County Election Board had its way.

But Sunset Hills Alderman Richard Gau is not totally off the hook yet, but things are moving that way.

The Election Board canceled a court hearing on the Sunset Hills case.

Members of the Election Board of Commissioners will decide at next Tuesday's commission meeting whether to push on with the Sunset Hills effort or drop the case and cut their losses.

They've already spent several thousand dollars in the attempt to force do-overs from the April election.
