McKenna\'s office - 273-8200 Providence Ward 8 Council Race Continues This time in RI Supreme Court (Providence, Rhode Island, USA) The Ward 8 city council election will continue according to Attorney Keven A. McKenna, who will be filing papers on behalf of Wilbur W. Jennings Board of Elections hearing to the Rhode Island Supreme Court today. \"We will be at the Supreme Court today to file a writ, a stay, and a request for an order of a new election\" McKenna said this morning. \"Evidence continues to come forward that the will of the people of Ward 8 has not only been diluted, but that many have been disenfranchised by their votes not being counted.\" \"In effect the Board is disenfranchising voters." McKenna said in an interview this morning. "On the one hand, the Board of Elections called in the State Police to investigate serious evidence uncovered in the 8th ward, yet the board now is confirming an election using the very votes, voters and issues they called in the State Police to investigate." "The pressures and time constraints of the Election schedule have obviously compelled the Board of Elections to willfully and knowingly disregard their own request of a State Police Investigation and now rely on the tainted voters and votes they put in question to certify an election they know is clouded in suspicion" McKenna said today. "The ONLY way to remove the cloud over this election . . . by that I mean to correct the many administrative errors, improprieties, and alleged fraud and prove to the voters that this is NOT Florida, and show them by example that we take elections seriously here, is to grant a new election." "We will continue to seek justice for Wilbur Jennings and the people of Ward 8 who regardless of the time constraints are entitled to be re-enfranchised and their votes count fairly, completely, and without dilution" McKenna concluded. - 30 - The press site is at www.digitalgurune.com/jennings
