Mah fails in final count

November 16, 2012


TOPEKA — After Shawnee County finished counting provisional votes late Thursday night, Republican Ken Corbet was declared the winner of the 54th District House seat, ousting incumbent Ann Mah by a total of 21 votes.

Mah told The Topeka Capital-Journal late Thursday night that she will not mount a legal challenge.

The final tally, after results were canvassed in Douglas, Osage and Shawnee counties, had Corbet with 5,394 votes to Mah’s 5,373, the Capital-Journal reported.

The largest part of the 54th District is in Shawnee County, which Mah won, but voters in Osage and Douglas counties favored Corbet.

The republicans wanted to get rid of Ann but they couldn't beat her fair and square, so they redistricted her out of office.

They certainly would have if they could have, but the courts did the redistricting, not the legislature this time around.
