Officials say Pigeon Forge liquor vote was flawed

Update 12:00 pm.  The judge has ordered a new election to determine if liquor by the drink can be sold in Pigeon Forge.

He said there's no question that 289 people who shouldn't have voted on the measure did, and that far exceeds the margin of victory in the liquor by the drink vote. 

He said there's "No question the vote is incurably uncertain."

He did not find any evidence of fraud.

We have a crew in the courtroom, and will bring you further information when we get it.
