Top Democrats sue over Florida primary

WASHINGTON -- Two top Florida Democrats filed a federal lawsuit Thursday against their own party, arguing that it is stripping more than four million Democrats of their right to vote.

The suit contends that by taking away Florida's delegates to the party's nominating convention -- a punishment for the state's decision to move up its presidential primary to Jan. 29 -- the party is imposing ``disenfranchisement on a massive scale.''
