Lawsuits Filed in Florida Over Presidential Election

Two separate lawsuits have been filed in Florida, contesting the results of the Presidential election in that state. One alleges the results were manipulated while the other claims state statutes governing election recounts are unfair.

Three voters in Florida are suing the state, claiming Donald Trump did not win the presidential contest and that somebody hacked the voting system.

The suit, filed in Tallahassee, claims there are uncounted ballots out there, enough to swing the results in Hillary Clinton’s favor. Another lawsuit, filed in federal court, claims Florida’s own rules for recounts are unconstitutional.

State statutes require an election be as close as a quarter of a percentage point to trigger a recount. Trump defeated Clinton by a point and a half. That case is being made by Roque De La Fuente, who ran for the presidency in Florida on the reform party ticket.
