Gore's Deal Is a Trojan Horse

Wednesday, 15 November 2000 12:00 AM

That’s about all this so-called sincere deal is worth, put forth by Junior Gore in an attempt to repair his sagging public image, so badly damaged from the self-inflicted wounds his desperation play for votes has brought about.

But it's also important to bear in mind that Gore has absolutely no authority whatsoever to 'offer' that the state of Florida do anything! This immutable fact nothwithstanding, Gore 'offered' away:

He said there were two plans to which he would agree: 1) that the Democrat counties would be able to hand count their ballots and that the absentee ballots would also be counted, then he would drop all of his lawsuits; and 2) that all counties in Florida would be hand-counted and the absentee ballots would also be counted, then he would drop all of his lawsuits.

These plans amount to nothing more than a Trojan Horse; in short, it’s a trap.

It's also a case of heads I win, tails you lose.

Both of these plans achieve the only objective Junior cares about: winning at any cost by subverting Florida law.

So isn’t it big of Junior Gore to make these offers?

He wins either way!

There is only one problem: manual recounts, such as those advocated by a few Democrat counties, are outside Florida law. Just because Gore

Here’s the bottom line:

The Florida law requiring certification of the vote one week after Election Day has an important purpose: to prevent undue handling and tampering with the results. Period. And it is this law that the secretary of state, Katherine Harris, has rightly upheld, as did a Florida judge in a ruling issued yesterday.

Team Gore lost the election and they don’t like it, and so far they’ve been allowed to subvert the process with lies, deceit, and chicanery. Oh yes, and with frivolous lawsuits.

Governor Bush should look this Trojan Horse in the mouth and say thanks, but no thanks: "I choose the rule of law, and that cannot be ‘bargained’ away to suit someone’s personal agenda. And yes, I’d be happy to meet with you, Mr. Vice President, after the election is concluded."

That would be saying a great deal and it’s something that’s been needed to be said for far too long.
