My problem with the 2000 elections is that the courts should have let the political process run as stated in the Constitution. Bush would have won, he had the electors. Unfortunately, the FL courts are so corrupt and biased to Dems, they made unconstitutional decisions, so there was little choice but for the Supreme Court to step in. Our court system is broken.
keep in mind the fl bar president is activly working and promoting the “defense” of the Gitmo Terrorists. Activly working against US intersts.
Yes. I wonder if they will show the part where SCOTUS unanimously vacates the rulings of SCOFLA.
This just goes to show that the Rats really are sore losers.
Actually, the Secretary of State of Florida certified the election of the Bush electors, the Bush slate of electors gathered in the state capitol on the appointed day and cast their ballots and the Secretary of State of Florida sent the results to Washington while the issue was still in Florida courts. So it actually didn't require court intervention at all - if the Secretary of State stonewalled the SCFLaws then the election of the Bush-Cheney ticket was an accomplished fact.
The reality is that it was the election law of the State of Florida which was broken; it had conflicting requirements to come to a conclusion on a date certain, on one hand, and to "count every vote" on the other hand. The conclusion by a date certain requirement was in place to prevent exactly what Mayor Richard Daley's son came to FL from Chicago to implement - an endless recount with no closure accepted other than the victory, by whatever means, for the Democratic candidate.
Then-president (ugh!) Bill Clinton inadvertently told the truth by complaining that SCOTUS "stopped the voting" in Florida. He intended to say, "stopped the counting" - but counting was only a means to the end of declaring Gore the winner. And declare Gore the winner was exactly what Mr. Daley did when he got off the plane from Chicago the morning after election day. That was highly offensive because he had no authority to know any more about the vote totals in Florida than I did. It was the sum of a bunch of secret ballots, and only the officials in Florida had any way of knowing the results - and the official result was not what Mr. Daley wanted.
