Today is a day in court for Edie Knight. The 86-year-old Atascadero widow will be in court this afternoon, charged by State Attorney General Xavier Becerra for breaking election laws.
The widow is accused of calling potential voters from near a polling place and reminding them to vote.
This morning, attorney Ilan Funke-Bilu will ask that the charges be dismissed. If they are not dismissed, her hearing will be at 1:30 this afternoon in Department 10 of the San Luis Obispo Superior Court.
