Ophelia Ford To Sue TN Senate Over Election

From the Nashville TV affiliate WSMV:

Ophelia Ford Files Lawsuit Against Senate

Ford Wants Taxpayers To Pay For Litigation

May 29, 2007

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — State Sen. Ophelia Ford is refusing help from her family despite some of them saying she has a drinking problem.

Meanwhile, Ford has filed a suit against the state Senate that could cost taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars.

Even though Ford is the senator from District 29, she is still suing the state senate over a disputed special election that occurred 13 months ago. Election officials later found that dead voters cast ballots in the election…

Mind you, Ms. Ford is suing to retain a seat she has already been re-elected to. But since she is using the taxpayers’ money she has nothing to lose.

Which is a sad testimony to the voters in her district. (Including the dead.)
