ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - New developments within the St. Louis Police union.
A temporary restraining order’s being sought to try and stop officers from casting their ballots a second time to settle questions of possible voter fraud.
The original vote by members of the St. Louis Police Officer’s Association was thrown into doubt after blank ballots and ballot envelopes were found in a secretary’s desk.
A hearing on the case is set for Friday afternoon.
Until then, the judge has ordered that the “status quo remain and no ballots shall be opened by agreement of the parties.”
That status quo is an election in which a new union president was chosen by a narrow margin of just 15 votes.
