Lawsuit Challenges Primary

November 20th, 2007 by Mike Vasilinda

Another lawsuit has been filed against the state for moving its primary to January 29th. This one is from Florida Democratic National Committeeman Jon Ausman. Ausman contends that Florida voters are not being equally protected because democrats stand to have no delegates at their convention, while the republicans are willing to allow half of the delegates selected.

“Florida is entitled to four percent of all the delegates, roughly, at the Republican national convention and the Democratic national convention,” Ausman said. “For Republicans, they’re going to have two percent, which is under representation of our people. And the Democratic side will have zero percent, which is a gross under representation. That’s no representation whatsoever.”

Ausman also calls the disenfranchisement a infringement on free speech.
