“Southern discomfort: Pigeon Forge liquor referendum headed to court “

News from TN: “Some of the things that happened in Pigeon Forge’s Nov. 6 liquor referendum are enough to drive a teetotaler to drink. Or even lead an imbiber to hop on the sobriety wagon. Only bona fide city residents, or owners of property inside the city limits, were supposed to vote in that referendum. Liquor by the drink was narrowly approved by exactly 100 votes, 1,232 to 1,132. Yet there were 303 more votes cast in the election than there were qualified Pigeon Forge residents or property owners who signed in at the polls to vote. Most of those are now known to have been cast at the Pigeon Forge City Hall polling place, said Dennis Francis, attorney for the Sevier County Election Commission.”
