Challenge to Germantown mayoral election results continues

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - The results for Germantown’s mayoral election are still in question.months after the election.

Alderman John Barzizza, who lost to incumbent Mayor Mike Palozzolo by only 120 votes, has now filed a motion to inspect paper ballots from November's election as part of a post-election lawsuit.

His attorneys say they're especially concerned about absentee ballots they claim skewed heavily toward Palozzolo.

The election commission’s attorney says a court order must be granted before those ballots can be seen.
