    The Press vs. Al GoreHow lazy reporting, pack journalism and GOP spin cost him the election One month after formally kicking off his presidential campaign, Vice President Al Gore paddled down the Connecticut River in New Hampshire on July 22nd, 1999, spreading his green theme of protecting the environment and pausing for a photo op. His message was quickly drowned out, though, when the Washington Times' Bill Sammon reported that local authorities had granted Gore a special favor when they released nearly 4 billion gallons of water from a nearby dam into the drought-stricken river in order to keep the ...

    Former Democrat Joe Lieberman used his last speech on the U.S. Senate floor on Wednesday to call for bipartisanship and get in a last dig over the controversial result of the 2000 election, when he was the Democratic vice presidential nominee. Lieberman, 70, announced in January 2011 that he would retire when his fourth term ends next month rather than seek re-election. He reflected on his career in remarks that lasted for about 20 minutes, recounting landmarks in his career and changes in society since he became a U.S. senator in January 1989. “When I started here in the Senate,...

    I have learned that Florida election officials are set to announce that the secretary of state has discovered and purged up to 53,000 dead voters from the voter rolls in Florida. How could 53,000 dead voters have sat on the polls for so long? Simple. Because Florida hadn’t been using the best available data revealing which voters have died. Florida is now using the nationwide Social Security Death Index for determining which voters should be purged because they have died. Here is the bad news. Most states aren’t using the same database that Florida is. In fact, I have heard...

    WaPo ^ | 12.12.10 | George Will
    The passions that swirled around Bush v. Gore, the Supreme Court case that ended 10 years ago Sunday, dissipated quickly. And remarkably little damage was done by the institutional collisions that resulted when control of the nation's supreme political office turned on 537 votes out of 5,963,110 cast in Florida. Many controversies concerned whether particular votes could be said to have been cast properly. Chads are those bits of paper that, when a ballot is properly cast by puncturing spots next to candidates' names, are separated from the ballot. In Florida, there were "dimpled" chads that were merely dented and...

    Ten years have passed since federal agents seized a Little Havana home snatching a 6-year-old boy from his Miami relatives and reuniting him with his father who lives in Cuba. The Elian Gonzalez saga had major political implications and some credit that single episode to the reason George W. Bush won the presidency in 2000. Elian Gonzalez survived a dangerous journey from Cuba after his mother and others died trying to reach South Florida. A fisherman found the 6-year-old boy holding onto an inner tube on Thanksgiving Day in 1999. Now, the fisherman who found him and his Miami relatives...

    Wealthy Democratic political gadfly Connie Milstein, who calls herself "an ordinary Park Avenue matron," will now have to change her tune. Sources tells us the heiress to the Milstein real-estate fortune has just gone to contract to buy a Fifth Avenue duplex apartment with a $15.7 million asking price. Milstein made a name for herself in 2000 during the Bush-Gore election when she was caught on camera bribing homeless potential voters with cigarettes in exchange for a vote for Gore. She was eventually fined $5,000 for her spirited activism. Unlike the homeless, Ms. Milstein has signed on to take a...

    comprehensive review of the uncounted Florida ballots from last year's presidential election reveals that George W. Bush would have won even if the United States Supreme Court had allowed the statewide manual recount of the votes that the Florida Supreme Court had ordered to go forward. Contrary to what many partisans of former Vice President Al Gore have charged, the United States Supreme Court did not award an election to Mr. Bush that otherwise would have been won by Mr. Gore. A close examination of the ballots found that Mr. Bush would have retained a slender margin over Mr. ...

Secretary of State Clinton stopped by to warn the continent's largest nation that vote-rigging was eroding its government's legitimacy and global aspirations. But while discussing the importance of free and fair elections at a town hall meeting, she likened the country's corruption problems to the disputed 2000 Florida recount that sealed George W. Bush's presidential victory. Mrs Clinton said: "In a democracy there have to be winners and losers. And part of creating a strong democratic...

    I hate to admit it, but I grew up watching Jack Cafferty on local TV news. Even then Jack had this pretentious air about him. His attitude was always "the viewer is an idiot." I don't watch him on CNN, which proves that I have gotten much smarter over the years. Jack always tries to act the "hard nosed reporter," but he is beginning to lose his edge, probably because he is suffering from dementia. Today he had an episode of dementia on-air, during the situation room with Wolf Blitzer there was a discussion of the Iranian election. All of...

    After sitting on the story for nearly eight years, Arianna Huffington said this afternoon that John McCain told her soon after the 2000 election that he did not vote for George W. Bush. The private conversation took place at a Los Angeles dinner party, she said, and the senator's wife Cindy said she didn't vote for Bush either. The liberal blogger, who posted the account on her website today, said McCain's declaration came after a tirade in which he criticized Bush's tactics against him in their battle for the GOP nomination.

    The media didn't talk about it but in the 2000 election contest the Democratic strategy if they couldn't get the vote count to go their way was to tie the results up in the court so that Florida wouldn't be able to field electors. This would have cut 25 electors from Bush's total and given Gore the election. The Florida state legislature was dominated by the Republican party who let it be known that they could appoint the electors and with the Supreme Court decision the Democrats effort to win the election by disenfranchising Florida was shelved.

    Leaders of a national campaign to elect the president by popular vote are hoping to gain ground in Massachusetts, a state proponents say has largely been ignored by presidential candidates who spend most of their time and money in states that don't have a strong party allegiance. Although leaders of the National Popular Vote Campaign say the issue is resonating with voters across the country, local lawmakers are less than enthusiastic about the proposed legislation. If Massachusetts joins Maryland, the first state to sign the inter-state compact into law, it would have to cast its 12 Electoral College votes for...

    Boston Globe - CONCORD, N.H.: A former national pollster argues in his new book that Al Gore really won the 2000 presidential election, but premature calls by the media for George Bush took Gore's victory away. David Moore's book, "How to Steal an Election," argues Al Gore rightfully won the presidency. Moore, a former University of New Hampshire professor, said he knows his premise is a "hard sell" and insists the book is not partisan. His former bosses -- the Gallup Poll -- disagreed and fired him after he told them about the book last spring, he said. Gallup General...

    Accelerating free fall pretty well describes the current Presidential campaign status of DNC candidate John Kerry’s 2004 bid for the White House. Having been spanked like the red headed step child of Saddam Hussein for weeks now, by everyone from his fellow Vietnam Vets and POW’s, to his fellow Democrat Senator Zell Miller, he sends out a distress signal and calls the Clinton cavalry in an attempt to save his sinking ship. From his hospital bed awaiting open heart surgery, Clinton gives the beleaguered candidate his best professional campaign advice, “Stop talking about Vietnam”, advice that would have been more...

    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Sept. 1 (AP) - Theresa LePore, the official whose confusing butterfly ballot design contributed to the turmoil of the 2000 presidential election and became the butt of jokes on late-night talk shows, lost her bid for re-election Tuesday. With all 692 precincts reporting, a challenger for her post as Palm Beach County elections supervisor, Arthur Anderson, had 91,134 votes, or 52 percent, while Ms. LePore had 85,601, or 48 percent. Ms. LePore declined to meet with reporters early Wednesday, but as the polls closed Tuesday she said she was too busy overseeing the counting of ballots...

    It is supposed to be a devastating critique of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth that John McCain doesn't like their ads. But should we be surprised? McCain knows no party. Instead, together with Kerry supporter Max Cleland, the Arizona senator makes for the smallest caucus in American politics — Thin-Skinned Vietnam War Veterans Adored by the Media (TSVWVAM).

    Tell me again. Which of the presidential candidates calls himself a "uniter" and not a "divider"? "Don't tell us that the strongest democracy on earth," said Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry in a recent speech for the NAACP, "that a million disenfranchised African-Americans and the most tainted election in American history is the best that we can do. Don't tell us that we already see the purging taking place down in Florida. Don't tell us we don't have a right to expect an election in the United States that sets an example of democracy to the world. We can do...

    Press Release - Robert F. Martin 8/8/2004 I would like to clear some issues up regarding the video I co-produced. First, the video we produced should not be viewed in a partisan light. This video is not meant to be a pro or anti war commentary. The comments of Ben in the movie regarding ending the occupation were simply emphasize realism in what someone being held hostage would have potentially said while pleading for their life. How the video should be viewed is that it exposes problems in the media. We rely much too heavily on Reuters and Associated Press...

    Michael Moore's fakery fest "Fahrenheit 9/11" features in one of its scenes a newspaper headline that reads: "Latest Florida recount shows Gore won election." The words were apparently designed to perpetuate the myth that Bush "stole" the 2000 presidential election. A lawyer for the Pantagraph newspaper in Bloomington, Ill., sent a letter to Moore accusing him of misappropriating the headline from the Pantagraph's pages. The headline did appear in the Pantagraph, but only on the letters-to-the-editor page, and was intended only to reflect the letter writer's sentiments. According to the Pantagraph's Web site, the lawyer's letter also charges Moore with...

    From what I have heard and read over the years, Austin, TX is the Lone Star State's lib central. Y'know, UT, ZZ Top, Waylon and Willie and all. (Don't worry, I'm a social conservative. And my only in-person exposure to TX was a 1981 DFW stopover.)Yet Travis County (Austin's county) went red in 2000. My question here is, did the City of Austin go red or blue?
  • House rebukes [Corrine] Brown for 'coup' speech

    U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown of Jacksonville was rebuked and risked being forced into silence by House members Thursday after suggesting Republican members "stole the election" in 2000. In a seemingly rare vote, Washington officials said, the House decided, 219-187, to strike the "stole the election" statement from the congressional record. But they decided not to ban Brown from the House debate that day, as rules allow when members' reputations are impugned. Afterward, Brown told the Times-Union she stood by her statements. She at one point said, "I would have clarified it." Asked how, she paused and replied, "The truth of...

    Senator John Kerry made a fantastic statement while speaking to a predominantly black audience in Indianapolis last Tuesday. Admonishing the Bush administration for calling "[the Kerry campaign] pessimists for speaking truth to power," he stated: "Don't tell us disenfranchising a million African Americans and stealing their votes is the best we can do. This time, in 2004, not only will every vote count — we're going to make sure that every vote is counted." Kerry's statement came just a few days after a dozen members of the U.S. House of Representatives, led by the immediate past chair of the Congressional...
