From the College Fix:

Last fall we told you about Jennifer Henderson, a University of Missouri student who found herself the only known voter in a gerrymandered “community improvement district” (CID) as business owners were conspiring to raise the neighborhood sales tax without a public vote.

Her vocal opposition to a tax hike, noting the relative poverty of the neighborhood, led them to temporarily abandon the plan, though 15 total voters were later discovered in the Business Loop 70 corridor.
