Katherine Harris: Gore Fought Against Statewide Florida Recount

The truth keeps getting in the way for Al Gore.

Katherine Harris :
“If Al Gore had allowed us, and if the Florida Supreme Court had not intervened and rewritten the law, which they’re not supposed to do, we could have certified, which is a mere procedural action, and then after that, they could have petitioned any justice for a recount statewide, with uniform standards. And they would have had the time to complete the statewide recount, which we wanted to do.”

Joe Klock, Attorney for Katherine Harris:
“We filed that action at 3:00 in the morning on November 15, and by 9:00 in the morning, the Gore people were all over it. They wanted no part of that. They only wanted to count in their four carefully-selected counties. There was such an outrage about it, and then later that day, the Supreme Court dismissed it without prejudice.”
