[For those seeking some kind of finality in this political mess...]
TALLAHASSEE, FL - A third recount by Florida election officials has
"definitively determined" that Green Party candidate, Ralph Nader, was
defeated in the state.
"There was a very significant 25,603-vote discrepancy between the first
two counts, with Nader losing by respective margins of 2,812,339 and
2,837,942, so we decided to conduct a hand recount," Florida Attorney
General Jim Smith said.
"We now know that Nader lost by precisely 2,821,278 votes." It is not
yet known whether Nader lost to Gore or Bush.
