Letter about Presidential Election

C.J. Johnson put a spin in the letter that was in the September 18th issue, that George W. Bush wasn’t even elected President. It is a fact, The New York Times had 24 reporters covering the election in Florida. Despite spending $1 million and filing 13,000 word articles, they could find no wrong doing or an improper election. Neverless, three carefully placed allegations ignited a firestorm in many other media papers, TV, radio, etc., on the subject then and even now.

Even Florida’s Democratic activist Bob Beckel estimated that the premature Gore projection, before western Florida’s polling stations were closed, cost George W. Bush eight thousand votes in Florida.

There is one basic truism of every election: Because of our cherished tradition of the secret vote in America, no one knows whose ballots were disqualified as undervotes or overvotes, much less the racial identity of these voters.
