Challenger for Wasserman Schultz’s Seat Files Election Complaint

HeadlineAug 09, 2016

Tim Canova, who is running against former Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz for her congressional seat in Florida, has filed a complaint against Wasserman Schultz with the Federal Elections Commission. Wasserman Schultz stepped down last month as DNC chair after the WikiLeaks release of nearly 20,000 emails revealing how the Democratic Party favored Hillary Clinton and worked behind the scenes to discredit and defeat Bernie Sanders in the presidential primaries. Canova’s campaign said the complaint alleges that Wasserman Schultz “used her position with the DNC and the resources of the DNC to improperly benefit her congressional campaign.”
