Florida Democratic Party Official Sues Democratic National Committee Over Delegates to National Convention

Published on August 31, 2007, by in General.

On August 30, a member of the Hillsborough County Democratic Executive Committee filed a lawsuit in federal court against the Democratic National Committee. The lawsuit attacks the National Committee’s rule barring Florida from having any delegates to the 2008 national convention. It is DiMaio v Democratic National Committee, in U.S. District Court, Middle District, no. 07-cv-1552. It was assigned by Judge Richard Lazzara, a Clinton appointee. The complaint is here.

    Rules produced by any private entity do not
    supersede the rights of an individual pursuant to the U.S. Constitution and as a result states which
    seek to move up in the nominating process should not be penalized as the leaders of these states were elected by the people thus are speaking for the people.
