Florida Democrats in House want inquiry



The nine Democratic U.S. House members from Florida urged the House Administration Committee to create a special task force to launch an investigation into the FL 13 race in light of this week's new information.

"That these revelations are coming to light now, through press reports, suggests that the potential for fraud in this election was real, that it was known by the responsible officials and that these officials did nothing about it,'' they wrote in a letter today. "Further, that these reports came to light through press reports strongly suggests that this investigation is far from complete."

The letter is signed by Alcee Hastings, Robert Wexler, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Allen Boyd, Corrine Brown, Kendrick Meek, Ron Klein, Kathy Castor and Tim Mahoney.
