We spent a couple of hours Friday morning with infighting Hartford Democrats at Hartford Superior Court.
Let’s just say it wasn’t the most riveting stuff. Some Democrats (we won’t name who) slept. Others checked their cell phones. And, just before noon, it seemed clear enough that a ruling would take a while — if not wait until next week. We left. If something came of it, we’ll let you know.
Briefly, the North End town committee slate in Abe Giles’ district is facing a political challenge from residents calling for “change.” Now, those challengers say they’ve filed suit in state court, alleging that the city’s Democratic registrar of voters — who is related to Giles — improperly certified the slate of which she is a member. At issue is the makeup of the town committee, which has a strong voice in who will be the city’s next mayor.
