Jennings not only one seeking a seat in D.C.



Christine Jennings isn't the only candidate hoping a Congressional investigation into voting problems will aid her bid for a seat in Washington. Three other Democrats in Florida are disputing election results for similar reasons.

Clint Curtis is contesting Rep. Tom Feeney's win in District 24; Frank Gonzalez is contesting Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart in District 21; and John Russell is challenging Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite in District 5.

Curtis' press secretary on Wednesday called attention to the dispute, timing it with tomorrow's expected announcement from Rep. Rush Holt, D-New Jersey, that the swearing in of new congress members does not preclude any legal proceedings or results of a House investigation.

Also Wednesday, Jennings formally appealed last week's court decision denying her access to the iVotronic source code.
