Iranian sues for recount in Florida

TEHRAN, Iran (Reuters) -- An Iranian citizen has filed a lawsuit in a local court asking for the recount of United States presidential votes in Palm Beach County, newspapers said on Tuesday.

The citizen, Aboulfazl Megghiizade, filed the suit in his hometown of Khorramabad in western Iran for what he said was fraudulent vote counting and violation of human rights by both U.S. officials and Palm Beach County officials, the daily Jomhuri-ye Eslami said.

Other newspapers carried similar reports.

The Palm Beach County canvassing board has not responded to the lawsuit in Khorramabad. Florida Attorney General Bob Butterworth dismissed the lawsuit as political, saying that it "only demonstrates foreign interference in our domestic affairs".

Earlier last week former Iranian President, Ali Akbar Rafsanjani offered to send election observes to monitor the recount in Florida.

The U.S. State Department spokesman Richard Boucher, criticized the statement and said the Iranian government officials should avoid comments that create tension.
