Suit aims to boot Harris from ballot
Well, I don't think anyone saw this coming. After expending digital ink debating whether the Dems should sue to boot Harris off the ballot, it was all academic in the end. Harris' GOP primary opponent has taken matters into his own hands.
Harris called the suit "frivolous" without any apparent hint of irony. Truth is, Harris broke Florida law by running for Congress while still holding state office. Harris sees nothing wrong with this, despite having held Gore to an impossibly narrow interpretation of Florida election law.
I can't imagine Harris losing the case, but regardless, it's always nice seeing two Republicans tear each other to shreds (while wasting time and money in a courtroom).Posted August 15, 2002 11:51 PM | Comments (0)
