<< I agree that Gore shouldn't be trying to get all the absentee
ballots thrown out, but the fact that some of the ballots were not filled
out by the voters themselves, but by other people who recieved the ballots
makes me a bit suspicious too. >>
boner buns, the problem with the absentee ballots is validating when and by
whom the votes were cast. you need a postmark, a signature and the
signature of a witness. do you believe any of these things should be
overlooked just because they are military?
(anybody else think greenfield and woodruff are having an affair?)
harris could have "exercised her discretion" by waiting until monday morning
to cut off the palm beach county vote, but then she couldn't use the "you
can't mix incomplete counties' votes with the completed counties votes"
excuse to invalidate hundreds of legitimate votes today.
gore's accused of not knowing when to quit; i blame harris for not letting
repub spin: there have been three counts; bush won them all.
fact: thousands of votes remain uncounted even once. hundreds of gore votes
have been invalidated by harris.
repub spin: florida law demands votes be certified today.
fact: the law says harris could have waited until monday morning, when all
of pbc could have been included.
must be a family values thing.
