The Daily Kos notes that Katherine Harris has been sued by her Republican opponent, who alleges that she should be kicked off the ballot for violating state law. Harris resigned from office on August 1 instead of the required deadline of July 15, saying she "misunderstood the resignation letter rules". See, her old job didn't necessitate any prior knowledge of electoral rules, so it's just an honest mistake that could have happened to anyone.
Much as I'd enjoy seeing Klueless Katherine disqualified on a technicality, this seat is likely to remain Republican, so it would be a symbolic victory at best. But hey, you take 'em where you can.Posted by Charles Kuffner on August 16, 2002 to Election 2002
