Congressman Says House May Decide Presidency

Tuesday, 21 November 2000 12:00 AM

"It appears to me that there’s a very good possibility that the [Florida] Supreme Court will overturn the election process in Florida, and that the Congress may end up electing the next president," said Rep. Chris Cannon, R-Utah, in an exclusive NewsMax.com interview.

Cannon was critical of the hearing held by the Florida court on Monday. He said the jurists were acting improperly.

"This Florida Supreme Court, who are supposed to be a bunch of impartial jurists, is grabbing the headlines by responding on their own. They issued an order staying [Secretary of State] Katherine Harris from acting. Then they held a circus for the whole world to watch as some of these relatively ignorant jurists – I thought, at least from the part I saw – asked silly questions and setup questions of the Democrat counsel," Cannon complained.

He said he believes the Democrats are doing everything possible to obstruct the election process in Florida. They will stop at nothing in an effort to steal the election through vote fraud, ballot manipulation and abuse of power.

"I think the point of the Democrats must be obstruction in this case to hold all of our institutions up to public ridicule and thereby weaken the influence of our institutions that keep us a great country. It’s amazing to me," said Cannon in the phone interview.

Cannon has been looking into instances of voter fraud that were reported to his office. He found that 120 Florida residents who attend Brigham Young University in Utah were prevented from voting by absentee ballot because of a paperwork technicality. He said he also discovered that a Florida National Guard unit was prevented from voting.

"A large unit in Florida of several hundred people were ordered out on maneuvers at the last minute, two days or so before the election. They couldn’t get absentee ballots because it was too late for that, and they couldn’t vote because they were out on maneuvers," said Cannon.

He said the Democrats are very clever in their efforts to eliminate the military vote. Other reports have surfaced of military units being shipped out just before the election without warning, absentee ballots that did not arrive in time for military in foreign countries to vote, and efforts to disqualify ballots that were received.

Cannon was pleased that a court decision on Monday would enable many disqualified military ballots to be counted that Democrats had previously objected to because they did not have a postmark.

"It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that if the College Republicans at BYU come up with 120 ballots, those people are going to vote for Bush," said Cannon. "It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the people in the military loathe this administration. They loathe Al Gore and they’re going to vote against him.

"What did this administration do? Everything it could think of, everything that every liberal wacko nut could imagine, was done to keep people from voting for George Bush in Florida," said Cannon.

Will the Democrats give up if the vote is certified for George W. Bush?

"No. They’re not going to give up," said Cannon. He added that he is very concerned about the efforts being made by Democrats to find members of the Electoral College who can be persuaded to change their vote from Bush to Gore.

"The concern here is that you might have people that are susceptible to a bribe or other kind of motivation," he explained.

He said the many problems with the election will lead to more problems in the Electoral College, and Congress will decide the results of the election.

"I think there’s a very good likelihood of that. It’s all obscure right now, but if you look at the various trails or threads of a path that you can come up with, frankly George W. Bush is the likely winner in virtually all those paths – including the recount now," said Cannon, who is confident that Bush will come out on top eventually.

A clerk with the Congressional Research Service (CRS) confirmed to NewsMax.com that CRS has prepared documents for members of Congress who asked for guidance on the procedures in the event the election is placed in their hands.

So many individually asked for the information that CRS sent the documents to every congressman. The clerk said members of Congress are acting as if it is inevitable that they will soon be voting for the next president in a very historic election.
