Scott Gessler, two county clerks targeted with lawsuit over "election from hell"

The "election from hell." A "COLOSSAL problem." A "stunning level of incompetence."

These are all phrases used to describe a primary race in Teller and Douglas counties that was allegedly so disastrous that one of the candidates, in a new lawsuit, is arguing that the election should be voided.

First proof the process was a mess? Those quotes all come from officials in charge of the election -- the ones being targeted in the suit.
