North Florida Election Fraud Hearing Delayed

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- A suspended north Florida supervisor of elections is seeking dismissal of charges against her in a voting fraud case.
A hearing set for Wednesday in Tallahassee on the request from Jada Woods Williams, though, has been delayed until Jan. 30.
Governor Rick Scott suspended her as Madison County's top election official after she was charged with neglect of duty and corrupt practices a year ago.
Eight other people were charged in the case including school board member Abra "Tina" Johnson, who also was suspended.
They were accused of fraudulently obtaining absentee ballots to help Johnson win election in 2010.
Williams' case was moved to Leon County at her request. Six defendants, meanwhile, have filed motions to dismiss in Madison. The remaining two defendants resolved their cases through pretrial intervention.
