The plot thickened when <a href="http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/st-louis-county-finds-ballot-irregularities-razor-thin-state-house-race">ballot irregularities</a> made it impossible to conduct a recount.</p><p>By now, the two women planned to be helping out other candidates with general election opponents.
