Common Cause & League of Women Voters Seek Injunction to Remove Gov. Scott from Any Role in Florida Recounts

Today, Common Cause Florida and the League of Women Voters of Florida filed suit seeking a temporary restraining order and a preliminary injunction to remove Gov. Rick Scott from any role in the recount of the 2018 Florida General Election. The suit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida Tallahassee Division.

On Saturday, the groups sent a letter to Gov. Scott urging him to recognize the clear conflict of interest in overseeing the recount of his own race for the U.S. Senate and recuse himself from any related role.
