The Shelby County Election Commission filed a motion to dismiss a complaint filed by Germantown mayoral candidate John Barzizza, saying his claims for a recount are without merit, The Daily Memphian reports. Barzizza filed the lawsuit after the Nov. 6 municipal election, challenging Mike Palazzolo's 120-vote win by claiming 543 absentee votes were cast in the Germantown election, while only 476 were counted. The election commission states the facts in Barzizza’s complaint are false, but if they were true, he still would have lost to Mike Palazzolo by 50 votes.
