Former Broward Commissioner Barbara Sharief filed a lawsuit against her Florida Senate political opponent on Friday in Broward County.
Sharief accused Florida Sen. Lauren Book, the minority leader, of running ads centered on defamatory and libelists statements.
Sharief wants Book to pay $1 million in damages for alleging in one of her ads that she “betrayed Medicaid” and stole tax dollars, which she claims are “blatant lies.”
This is a developing story.
