5. The legal action was titled Bush v Gore

Gore was the defendant arguing for the recount to proceed, Bush was the plaintiff arguing the recount be stopped. SCOTUS ruled the recount be stopped and awarded the presidency to bush.

The democrats did not fold their tent. Short of raising an army and storming the Supreme Court, there were no options remaining. They lost the argument because the fix was in.

John Roberts was lead attorney for bush and was rewarded for his efforts.

8. Thank you for reminding people of the facts of this sorry chapter in our history..

The consequences were tragic, in everything from the Iraq War to the continued escalation of climate change.

6. A newspaper consortium examined the ballots, preserved by the court . All but 1 said Gore won 9/12!

They had stated they would report their conclusion on 9/12!

They did. And said it was clear Gore won FL

BUT 9/11 happened. And NO ONE PAID ANY ATTENTION

Scalia and Thomas should have recused themselves

* Thomas' wife was working for the W transition team

* One of Scalia's sons worked in the firm that led W side in the FL court case.

* Another son worked in the firm that led W's side in the SCOTUS

The SCOTUS decision explicitly declared that the ruling set NO PRECEDENT!!
That was the first and only time the SCOTUS has ever done that Prominent lawyers claimed that that claim revealed there was a major problem with the decision

As a DUer posted at the time 12/12/00 RIP America! (Date of 5-4 decision)

9. I always look for your Noshit posts,

pbmus. Just seeing "Noshit..." makes me laugh! Although, sometimes they are depressing, much like this one. Will we ever get back our democracy?!
