Mission: Visiting Judge Bonner Dorsey voided the results of the June runoff in which Armando O’Caña ousted longtime Mayor Beto Salinas, 51%-49%. For two weeks, a series of witnesses testified, in varying degrees of clarity and consistency, about ways in which votes may have been cast illegally or voters were assisted illegally. Dorsey said he found clear and convincing evidence that at least 158 illegal votes were cast. O’Caña’s margin of victory was 157 votes. O’Caña remains mayor pending appeal.
