Robb Pitts, who missed toppling Fulton County Commission Chairman John Eaves by only 303 votes in a Democratic primary contest that churned out 45,000 ballots, has filed a lawsuit challenging his loss.
Pitts alleges that a “bad” ballot description of the race as “Fulton County Commissioner From District No. 7 At Large” – with no mention that the seat is for commission chairman – sowed enough confusion among voters to skew the election.
Read the lawsuit here:
Pitts is asking a Fulton County Superior Court judge to declare the election invalid, and that a second election be held concurrent with July 22 runoff elections – or at a later date.
