Florida Sun Sentinel – A cross section of civil rights and legal groups from the NAACP to the National Lawyers Association is preparing to file suits alleging massive voting fraud and intimidation in Florida. They claim that there is evidence of systematic obstruction of the voting rights of black citizens across Florida in the recent Presidential election. Civil rights lawyers have been gathering evidence and plan to file lawsuits this week under the Voting Rights Act and other civil rights statutes. There are dozens of reports of harassment and intimidation of black voters and improper denial of voting privileges to blacks in Miami, Tampa, Tallahassee, Hillsborough County, Volusia County and other areas of Florida. The London Times reported that the FBI was asked to investigate allegations that thousands of blacks were given ballots that had already been marked for Republican candidates, and that up to 17,000 ballots had been tampered with.
