BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. – Former Broward County Mayor Dale Holness has filed a lawsuit to overturn the results of a contentious race for District 20′s congressional seat.
Holness claims Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick is “ineligible to hold office.”
She won the Democratic primary by only five votes.
Among the complaints listed in the lawsuit, Holness said Cherfilus-McCormick didn’t file proper financial paperwork and essentially bribed voters by promising to give them a monthly check for $1,000 if their annual household income is below $75,000.
Local 10 News reached out to Cherfilus-McCormick for comment, but she had not responded at the time of this posting.
