House rejects claim that vote machines failed in Florida race

With little discussion, the House late Monday dismissed Democrat Christine Jennings' contest of the November 2006 election in which 18,000 electronic ballots failed to record a vote in her race against Rep. Vern Buchanan. Buchanan defeated Jennings by fewer than 400 votes, but House investigators said they could find no evidence the machines had malfunctioned.
