Gilchrist Sheriff-Elect and Board Face Lawsuit
GILCHRIST COUNTY--The sheriff-elect and one of the county's election canvassing boards are facing a lawsuit.
The man behind the suit is the sheriff-elect's republican challenger, Robert Roux.
Bobby Schultz won the election by 38 votes.
The lawsuit contends Schultz was not an eligible candidate because even though he was registered to vote in Gilchrist County he had been living in Levy County since at least 2005.
State Statutes require that a registered voter be a legal resident of the county they are seeking office in.
Roux wants the results of the November election voided.
