RPOF blasts Dems "Kitchen Sink" lawsuit.

From a Republican Party of Florida press release responding to the Florida Democratic Party's voter-challenge lawsuit:

"Republican Party of Florida Chairman Jim Greer released the following statement tonight regarding the Florida Democrats’ baseless lawsuit filed this evening:

This is a bogus lawsuit and an attempt to distract voters from the real issues by throwing in everything but the kitchen sink six days out from Election Day.

The facts are clear and we have already addressed them thoroughly:  the mailer in question is not a Republican Party of Florida mail piece, plain and simple.  It is a Republican National Committee fundraising mailer to which the Republican Party of Florida has absolutely no connection. 

Moreover, the Republican Party of Florida has no intention of challenging any voter on the basis of foreclosure or this mail piece.  As we have said before, the word ‘foreclosure’ is not in our vocabulary.

In regards to the challenges filed in Glades County,  we are in the same boat as everyone else-—we know only what we have read in the newspapers. Simply put, the RPOF did not file these challenges.

This illegitimate lawsuit is not grounded in reality and it is meant to cause chaos and cast doubt on the integrity of our elections. While it is extremely unfortunate that the Democrats would seek to divert voters’ attention from the issues that really matter this election cycle, it is hardly surprising.”
