Investigation of Allegations by Election Board Iffy

The Fayette County Election Board held a brief meeting Friday, at the request of Controller Mark Roberts, who continues to allege violations by his election opponent Sean P. Lally.
Lally topped Roberts, who has served two terms as county controller, to receive the Democratic party nomination in the May primary election.

Roberts has repeatedly questioned the legitimacy of several of Lally's election petitions.

Lally spent $12,700 on attorneys to survive the election challenge at the county level and an appeal to state Commonwealth Court, according to his campaign finance report.
