Ed Berliner: 'Stark' Differences Between Trump Refusal and Al Gore's Loss in 2000

Newsmax TV's "Newsmax Prime"

By    |   Thursday, 20 Oct 2016 04:52 PM

The Trump campaign has come under fire for drawing parallels to Democratic candidate Al Gore's loss to Republican George W. Bush in 2000 to Donald Trump's refusal to readily accept November's election results if Hillary Clinton wins — "but the differences between then and now are stark and simple," Newsmax TV's Ed Berliner said Thursday.

"Al Gore never once questioned the validity of the electoral process before the vote itself," Berliner said in a "Newsmax Prime" commentary, "and his court challenge to the outcome was based on the chaotic events in Florida — demanding a more thorough investigation, which was rightfully held.

"Once the court ruled, Gore conceded the outcome.

"But the greater issue here that seems to be escaping necessary discussion is, how 16 years later, consistent election reform remains nothing more than a dream," Berliner said. "Or, in the case of what is currently transpiring, something of a nightmare."
