Maybe before 2023 we’ll know a decision about the August 9 Democratic primary between incumbent State Rep. Jack Hennessy and City Councilman Marcus Brown who has a two-vote lead following an order by Superior Court Judge Barry Stevens to hand count all the ballots.
The judge has weighed a motion for this, an argument for that, the discovery of missing ballots, repositioning oceanic tides to return absentee voters on a raft to Tahiti, yadda, yadda, yadda.
Okay, not the last part but when summer transitions to autumn, as the leaves turn brown will Marcus wear the North End crown?
Even if Stevens rules for Brown, or orders another primary, this case could be headed to the Connecticut Supreme Court. Ugh.
Evidence, oral arguments, may wrap up by Friday.
