The losing candidates in a Tuscaloosa city election are raising claims that University of Alabama students got free drinks to vote for their opponents.

   Denise Hills and Kelly Horwitz both lost city school board races on Tuesday, and each says Alabama students could have wrongly affected the outcome.

   The Tuscaloosa News (http://bit.ly/18n6ES7 ) reports that members of a sorority allegedly received an email saying they'd get free alcohol at two bars if they voted.
