Groups challenge state elections law



A consortium of associations and libertarian groups filed a lawsuit today in federal district court in Tallahassee challenging a Florida law that requires those who campaign to register with the state as an electioneering communications organization. They say the law violates their free speech rights.

Those filing the lawsuit include: the Broward Coalition of Condominiums, Homeowners Associations and Community Organizations Inc.;Charlotte Greenbarg University of Florida College Libertarians; Neal Conner; National Taxpayers Union; National Taxpayers Union Foundation; and Duane Parde. They filed it against the Secretary of State and the Florida Elections Commission. Read the complaint here.
