Lawsuit filed for vote records in Allen West race

FORT PIERCE — The St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections is being sued for access to public records related to Rep. Patrick Murphy's win.

A group called True The Vote and a former tea party leader filed the suit in federal court Monday.

They're requesting an inspection of a variety of records from the District 18 congressional race in which Murphy narrowly unseated former Rep. Allen West.

The St. Lucie Supervisor of Elections tells The Palm Beach Post her office has been in discussions with True The Vote about inspecting the records but could not comment on the lawsuit because she hadn't seen it.
