I think that it is quite obvious that he did. There is extremley mounting evidence that he had his brother's assistants help swing the Florida vote in his favor. When that wasn't working, he had daddy's supreme court "justices" help out.

First off, Bush's brother had nothing to do with the issue in Florida, secondly, just because it was a close win does not mean that there was any cheating involved, it is foolish to assume that there was cheating, and I would like for you to show me, and the voters this "extremley mounting evidence that he had his brother's assistants help swing the Florida vote in his favor", and I would like to see evidence that there were supreme court justices who swayed the outcome of the election simply because of Bush, and his dad. The decision to stop the recount of ballots in Florida was 7-2, but George H.W. Bush only appointed 2 justices in his presidency, I don't see how you can believe that there were 5 corrupt justices, and only 2 that voted honestly.

Love the enthusiasm.
Let's SKIP over the entire barring people who shared last names and birthdays with criminals bit. That is a MINOR offense.
Here are some facts for everyone to consider-
*Katherine Harris sent out a memo saying to count absentee ballots from overseas that were incorrectly filled out or postmarked after election day.
*7 overseas absentee ballots were adressed from inside the U.S.
*In counties in Florida where Bush won, 6 of 10 incorrectly filled out ballots were counted. Where Gore won, 2 of 10.
*When Gore got within 66 votes of Bush according to a news reporter, Supreme Court shuts down the recount. WHY? Didn't Bush win?

If Bush won then explain why he ordered that the recount be stopped?

I recently looked over these comments---

spencetheguy- you're right, but still it is unethical

frank gore is da best- you're wrong. All of the evidence has been shown by BBC, a few home movies, and a few newspaper articles.

Advidoct- you're wrong. If Bush had won, wouldn't he have let the recount go? He knew his scam would be unfolded.

Everyone who posted a comment about me being wrong, please go to your local library and read STUPID WHITE MEN, by Michael Moore. He lays out all of the evidence in chapter 1.

getting help from relatives and beging chosen by the supreme court is not stealing. that is fair and square.

There is no evidence. They had many investigations into the case and they found nothing. Bush did not cheat.

Dude, he ordered the recount to stop because its would have been the 3rd time. Gore was a sore loser.
