Ballot chaos in Florida: Rick Scott's campaign announces three more election lawsuits as heavily Democrat Palm Beach says it won't make the recount deadline as protesters accuse officials of incompetence

Florida Governor Rick Scott has filed three lawsuits against county officials involved in the recount of ballots as a Palm Beach County administrator says they probably won't make the recount deadlines.

Scott's campaign filed the suits over his virtual dead-heat race for the Senate against incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson.

One lawsuit is aimed at Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher.

Bucher said that she doesn't believe her department will be able to meet the state's Thursday deadline to complete the recount, throwing into question what would happen to votes there.

She blamed the issue on aging equipment.
