Gore Lawyers Urge Ballot Sent from Cuba

Tuesday, 14 November 2000 12:00 AM

On Nov. 9 and 10, I got calls from two different lawyers identifying themselves as being part of the "Gore effort."

They told me that I could still vote from abroad. I told them that it was my impression that one could not vote from anywhere after Nov. 7, 2000.

They said that the law does not deal with the foreign postmark, which can be adjusted backward in full compliance with U.S. law, as the U.S. has no foreign jurisdiction over postmarks.

The second of the two lawyers asked me whether I would be willing to fly to Havana, bring my ballot and cast it from there, if he paid for expenses.

He asked if I had ever flown on a private corporate jet, which suggested to me that he was willing to go to great expense to get my vote (no one offered a money bribe).

One of the lawyers asked if any of my friends or family might also have unused absentee ballots.

I got the impression that the two lawyers might have known each other, because their phraseology was quite similar in at least one place in their dialogs.

At one point the second lawyer, Mr. Cohen, got very pushy and accusative because I would not give him an answer. He kept saying that this was a very close election and that I had a responsibility to vote.

In neither phone call was anything suggested to me that I know for sure to be illegal. But in any case, I feel that their method of securing additional votes goes beyond political mischief. If, in fact, it is illegal and widespread, it is a very serious demonstration of just how corrupt the political system can be.

If anyone else from Florida received similar proposals, please let me know some or all of the details by sending me an e-mail at LateAbsenteeBallot@yahoo.com. Please specify if you wish me to keep your information confidential from anyone else.

Also, if any lawyer or anyone else knows anything in particular about the Florida or U.S. law on the dating of absentee ballots, please send me that information at LateAbsenteeBallot@yahoo.com.
