The contested 2000 presidential election

Tonight on Sixty Minutes, the interviewer made some comment about how some people thought that the Supreme Court stole the election for George W. Bush. The truth is something else again. There was this circus going on in Florida, the aim of which was to steal the election for Al Gore. Al Gore legitimately came close to winning, but the left was not content to let the process proceed to its natural conclusion. Instead, they were intent on ensuring that Al Gore won by all possible means. The Supreme Court put a stop to the circus, which was the real attempt to steal the election.
