Presidential-Election Vote-Counting

by Jim Wrenn, Editor  (November 11, 2000)   Furthermore ... go here.)

Listening to James Baker's news conference this morning (11-11-00 at approximately 10:30 am EST) explaining why the Bush Campaign filed suit in federal court seeking to enjoin commencement of a third recount of the votes in certain highly-Democratic counties in Florida using a manual-recount method motivated me to write this editorial.

Not only am I tired of the whining adults in south Florida claiming they were misled into incorrectly marking their choices on ballots easily understood by grammar-schoolers, but I deeply resent the Gore Campaign's ongoing attempt to require that special attention and help be given to voters who incompetently marked their ballots while all other voters in the country are stuck with whatever action they took when they marked their ballots.  To give such special attention to selected, careless voters in a nationwide election violates the very notions of due process and equal protection of the law for which our Constitution stands.  If the Gore Campaign  (or others unhappy with the recount) were to continue demanding such special treatment for careless voters, and if the federal court were to decline the Bush campaign's request for an injunction against such special treatment, then I, and other voters who competently marked our ballots, must give prompt, serious consideration to filing a nationwide class action on behalf of all voters believing they accurately completed their ballots to seek a nationwide federal injunction against this nonsense, which, unchecked, would seriously and permanently undermine our electoral process and the political stability of our Constitutional republic.

Jim Wrenn.
P.S.  Other competent voters sharing this view may contact my law-office at, and I will try to assist them in locating counsel ready, willing, able and competent to institute such nationwide class action.

Furthermore... (11-13-00) Just as Clinton was willing to undermine the Presidency to save himself, Gore is apparently willing to undermine the stability, even-handedness and finality of our presidential-election process to serve himself rather than his country.   Just as Clinton lacked enough shame to resign as did Nixon, Gore lacks enough honor to put the country's need for electoral stability, even-handedness and finality ahead of his own interest as did Nixon in 1960 when he declined to assert serious evidence that voting fraud illegally gave the election to Kennedy.  For the process unleashed by Gore following the first re-count (i.e., demanding subjective, visual interpretation of marks on punch cards designed to be read by machines calibrated to produce a lower rate of human error than subjective human analysis) to succeed, it will permanently undermine the stability of our presidential-election process.  In the future, all campaigns will automatically file requests for recounts; then they'll launch a public-relations campaign to encourage their supporters (and/or plants among them) to claim their votes weren't properly counted; then they'll launch a massive public-relations campaign to convince the public that "the system" somehow "disenfranchised" their supporters as grounds for overturning the normal vote-counting process.  We'll have to start holding Presidential Elections several years in advance to allow adequate time for all the inevitable litigation to wind its way through the courts.  Thanks, Al.  Jim Wrenn, Editor.  11-13-00.
