True the Vote, a group dedicated to protecting ballot integrity and ensuring fair election contests, has filed suit against the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections in Florida.  The suit demands the release of “all records pertaining to the recent 18th Congressional District election and subsequent recounts between Rep. Allen West and Patrick Murphy be reviewed in order to perform a comprehensive third-party audit.”

True the Vote president Catherine Engelbrecht released a video statement announcing the lawsuit and laying out her group’s criticism of St. Lucie elections officials:

Engelbrecht stressed that she doesn’t expect to overturn the results of the election, which Murphy narrowly won after the tortured recount process she describes.  She wants full details of the procedure made public for the benefit of future elections.
