    NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. (WFLA) - A run down looking Dale Massad walked into courtroom 3-A at the Pasco County Courthouse in a jail jumpsuit.

"He never shot at any officers," said attorney Bjorn Brunvand. "There were never officers in the path of any bullets. Did he fire bullets? Yes. But not toward...

That included some assistance from the Department of Homeland Security, which notified the agency one of the workers was using a fraudulent Social Security card; the Social Security number was also being...

Seminole's election chief, Mike Ertel, said he was still "tremendously concerned," but stopped well short of calling the incident "fraud." The Republican National Committee, though, levelled the accusation and blasted the housing and wage advocacy group in a nationwide conference call with reporters, saying...
