PhillyClout: David Oh Wins Final Council Seat in Philadelphia

Attorney David Oh has edged out Al Taubenberger for the seventh and final Philadelphia City Council At-Large seat, according to the Philadelphia Daily News’ PhillyClout blog.

According to the post: “Oh today finally bested Al Taubenberger in last week’s election, after absentee, military and provisional ballots were counted.  In the final tally, Oh led by 166 votes from election day ballots and absentee ballots.  A count today of 755 provisional ballots, used on Election Day when there are questions about a voter’s registration, did not put Taubenberger ahead.”

Oh was the top vote-getter in May’s Republican primary, but his general election campaign was hampered by reports that he had falsely claimed to be a Green Beret.  Another series of reports detailed several prior instances in which Oh was accused of pulling guns in Philadelphia’s rough and tumble Cobbs Creek neighborhood (he was released after questioning by police in two of the instances).

Oh will join State Representative Dennis O’Brien as the two at-large minority party members on the City’s seventeen-member council.
