Hearing Today on Judicial Watch's Ballot Examination

Tuesday, 28 November 2000 12:00 AM

The Democrats will ask Circuit Judge Jorge Labarga today to "protect" disputed ballots damage while they contest the election in a Tallahassee court, although they have no objection to an examination by Judicial Watch, headed by Larry Klayman.

"We have filed for a protective order," said Democrat attorney Dennis Newman. "We have no objection to Mr. Klayman looking as these ballots. Our objection is looking at them today, particularly the challenged ballots – that seems to be the ones he wants to look at – because there is an election contest, as you know, and we want the ballots segregated."

Klayman, a longtime foe of the Clinton administration, has received permission to re-examine the ballots in Miami-Dade County and is seeking permission to look at Broward County ballots. He said a similar effort in all 67 counties was possible because he wanted to create a public record by describing each ballot, but at first he plans a small-scale operation.

"We're here to be a watchdog – to make sure this was done properly by the rules. This election cannot be shoved down the throats of the American people by either side," Klayman said.

During the examination Tuesday, Supervisor of Elections Theresa LePore held up each ballot so Klayman could look at it, because at this point she is the only one allowed to touch the ballots. The 5,900 disputed ballots in question contained 3,300 that were challenged by the Republicans during the hand recount and 2,600 that were challenged by the Democrats.

In another development, Palm Beach County spokeswoman Denise Kote said some of the recount results sent to the secretary of state's office Sunday night may not have been audited.

"In some cases, I suspect that unaudited figures were included in that report, but that doesn't mean they were wrong," Kote said.
