WSFA 12 News Update: Dems keep promise on lawsuit

Montgomery, Ala. (WSFA) -- The state's Democratic party makes good on a threat.

Joe Turnham, the chairman of the Alabama Democratic Party has filed suit against Secretary of State Beth Chapman.  Turnham says state law requires the secretary of state to give political parties a free copy of the state's voter registration list.

The Democrats got a free list in April, but now Chapman's office wants more than $28,000 for an updated list.
