Ignore the Court: Harris Should Certify Bush

Saturday, 18 November 2000 12:00 AM

If she doesn’t, I fear that Bush has lost his best chance to gain the presidency, which he fairly and squarely won.

Time and delay favor Gore.

The notoriously partisan Democratic Florida Supreme Court understands this point.

This is why the court issued an injunction Friday to stop the certification of Bush this weekend.

Harris has every right to follow the explicit instructions of Florida law, which state that she is to certify the winner on Saturday afternoon after the count of the absentee ballot.

The Florida Supreme Court, whose duty is to interpret the law, overstepped its bounds by ordering the secretary of state to break the law.

The secretary of state should ignore this judicial intrusion into her jurisdiction.

If it has a problem with her certification, the Supreme Court can attempt to overrule her decision, but what penalty can it impose on her for complying with Florida law?

The truth is that once Bush is certified the winner, it will be very difficult to overturn the result. Pressure will likely mount for Gore to concede.

If Harris takes the initiative and certifies Bush, I believe most Americans will rally around her for bringing an end to this national nightmare.

The Democrats and the liberal media know Harris has the power within her hand to bring this matter to a conclusion and end Al Gore’s gambit to steal the presidency.

This is why the Gore people are making not-so-veiled threats to investigate Harris, why they are making wild accusations against her and the major media has been demonizing her.

They fear her, so, following Carville’s advice, they are attempting to destroy her.

The Bush camp and Harris have nothing to lose and everything to gain by having Bush certified pursuant to Florida law.

Gore has everything to gain by having the Supreme Court of Florida delay and likely vote in favor of including the manual recount.
