    The Constitution guarantees a republican form of government, which this city is refusing. The feds have a clear mandate to step in and regulate.

    Voting Coercion Charges Fly in Calif. City
    By MICHAEL R. BLOOD, Associated Press Writer

    VERNON, Calif. - It took a judge's order to force the first local election in 25 years in this industrial city, and it was a contest filled with allegations of intimidation, harassment and undercover surveillance.

    And it wasn't over when the polls closed, either.

    On Tuesday night, a clerk promptly carried a metal ballot box into the City Council chamber and announced he would not count the votes.
