Plaquemines DA Race Comes Anti-Climatic End

After 9 days in post runoff election for District Attorney limbo, where challenger Leo Pallazo refused to concede to incumbent Charles Ballay, claiming Ballay’s “historically small margin” of victory and “numerous [reports of] voting irregularities” meant the results were illegitimate, Palazzo finally pulled back. Meaning, by an official margin of 15 votes, Ballay will remain the Plaquemines DA for the next 6 years. This will be Ballay’s third term as DA.
