The state Supreme Court could end up having the final say in a Coventry election fiasco.

The controversy stemmed from the resignation of Town Councilor Ted Jendzejec earlier this year.

There should have been a special election to replace him, but that didn't happen because of a charter omission that officials blamed on a clerical error.

On Tuesday, the Coventry Board of Canvassers voted to have the Supreme Court decide the case, according to ABC6.

Jendzejec's former seat in District 5 remains open.

4 votes. What if they tie? Perhaps the first to make fire breaks the tie?

20% of Coventry's residents have now been disenfranchised due to the lies, arrogance, and corruption of the Town's Democrats. The U.S. Attorney for RI should immediately institute a thorough investigation of this unmistakable violation of our civil rights.

We are to accept this without question. The powers that be in Coventry have spoken! The puny taxpayers have no say in important town matters. All is well
