Rizzo won the primary by a single vote over Will Royster, 664 to 663. Royster cried foul immediately after the primary, initially questioning Rizzo's support from Somali-Americans. An appeals court denied Royster a new election. Rizzo was re-elected last year and remains in office. Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker said in a statement announcing the pleas, "Justice was done. These two will never vote again."
