December 12, 1960: Election Suits Dismissed

From the Chicago Daily Tribune from this day in 1960: "Two suits filed by Chicago Republicans to compel the city and the county canvassing boards to correct their reports on the basis of vote discrepancies uncovered in a recheck were dismissed yesterday by Judge Thomas E. Kluczynski in Circuit court.

"At the same time, a federal judge in Houston, Tex., dismissed a case in which Republicans sought a recount of the Texas vote on the ground that G.O.P. voters as a class had been deprived of their civil rights thru 'dilution' of their votes. His dismissal of a temporary injunction which had been granted the Republicans opened the way for casting Texas' 24 electoral votes for Sen. John F. Kennedy, the Democratic Presidential nominee."
