If Gore Steals Enough Votes, What's Next?
Dan Frisa
Friday, Nov. 24, 2000
It seems likely that Gore and his goons could well steal enough votes to overtake the legitimate lead won by George W. Bush three times thus far: on Election Day, with the machine recount, and also with the portion of absentee ballots certified thus far.

And the deck is stacked.

Partisan Democrat canvassing boards are "conducting" the manual "recounts," and whenever they believe there will not be enough "new" votes harvested, they simply change the rules.

In Palm Beach County, it has been illegal for more than 10 years to count indented, dimpled ballots. So they changed the rules ex post facto – after the fact.

This is like one team moving the goal line during a football game, whenever their opponent is close to scoring.

How is this "determining" the will of the people?

It is not; it is a partisan farce.

So, it is obvious that Gore will easily manufacture enough bogus votes in his quest to take the election away, ironically, from the very people whose will he has falsely claimed to support.

No surprise there, he does it repeatedly.

The question is, what will happen next and what options remain?

As referenced here on several occasions, the remedies available are administrative, legislative and legal.

• The secretary of state can still certify the previous total results now, as clearly required by Florida law, the court ruling notwithstanding. Or she can certify those totals after 5 p.m. on Sunday. As an independently elected executive officeholder – on a coequal basis with the judiciary – she certainly would be justified to do so given the blatant and obvious overreaching by the state Supreme Court. Another option, as suggested by Chris Ruddy of NewsMax, would be to hold off certification until the U.S. Supreme Court rules. Contact Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris: secretary@mail.dos.state.fl.us.

• The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has invited further motions in the action previously brought by plaintiffs regarding the conduct of the Florida election. Given the court’s ruling, both equal protection and due process claims are now ripe for federal adjudication. A recent Alabama case is on point and is compelling precedent for such action. The U.S. Supreme Court has just agreed to hear this Bush appeal on constitutional grounds, with a hearing scheduled for December 1st.

• The Florida Legislature retains the constitutional prerogative to select its state’s presidential electors. It can still act to fulfill this responsibility, especially given the tainted process exhibited so dramatically in numerous instances of highly questionable practices. Speaker of the Florida House of Reps Tom Feeney announced that the legislature is weighing its options for action in light of the blatant disregard for the law in the ruling by the Florida Supreme Court. Contact the Florida Speaker Tom Feeney: feeney.tom@leg.state.fl.us.

• The Palm Beach County Circuit Court should be petitioned to reopen its determination issued on Wednesday with regard to liberalizing the standards used in reviewing ballots in the manual count. The Gore lawyers fraudulently misrepresented an Illinois Supreme Court ruling, erroneously contending that case sanctioned the counting of "dimpled" ballots. This claim was a lie. To the contrary, the Illinois trial court ruled that such ballots would not be counted, and they were not.

•Political pressure must continue to be mounted, and on an increased basis. Sell-out Sen. Joe Lieberman has today called such activity "rule of the mob" in an effort to undercut, you guessed it, the will of the people.

What unmitigated gall! This from the crowd that only knows manufactured demonstrations organized by union bosses and the likes of rabble-rousers Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.

What this shows is that Democrats and their left-wing chorus in the media can’t stand it when average citizens take the time to make their voices heard in peaceful, public gatherings.

That is why it is so very important to keep up the pressure. The outcry is being heard; we must not be intimidated.
