Buddy Johnson, SOE Hillsborough County: "No one knows when he will be. in."

"I'm not sure where he is, but I'll give him a message."

SPT, Jeff Testerman reports:

Hillsborough Elections Supervisor Buddy Johnson was a hard man to find when lawyers for the NAACP wanted to question him as part of a federal voting rights lawsuit.

For 18 days, process server Dan Neatherly tried in vain to find the elections chief and serve him with a subpoena....The NAACP lawsuit, filed in federal court in North Florida in September, named Secretary of State Kurt Browning as defendant. It challenged a provision of state law prohibiting the registration of voters who gave personal identifying information that could not be matched precisely with existing driver's license or Social Security records.
The Brennan Center for Justice gives details.
