We are calling this one "Having their cake. . . ?"From
a transcript of Baker's speech today:

>QUESTION: Secretary Baker, the reason some of those
ballots were not counted on Election Day and again on
the re-count is because there was no hole punched.
There are reports that some ballots have pencil
markings. Some voters were a little confused and
circled the candidate's name rather than do a hole
punch. Does the Bush campaign believe those votes
should not be counted?

BAKER: Well, let me refer you to the lawyer, the
Florida lawyers on that. If the law of Florida is that
in order to vote a machine ballot you have to punch a
hole, and that isn't done, then those votes are not
going to be counted. That's all I can tell you.<

>From the Bushwatch website:

>A BUSH WATCHER WRITES... "As you are aware heavily
Republican Seminole County Florida was the last to
finish its mandatory recount. The margin was down to
about 229 and Seminole County votes added another 98
(net) to Bush. The reason for Seminole County's delay
is that they voluntarily provided the complete
recount, INCLUDING REJECTED BALLOTS, sought in Palm
Beach etc. Yesterday Afternoon local TV news carried
pictures and an interview with a member of the
Seminole County election board (Supervisor of
Elections?) and local REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN DAN MICA
who was present and interviewed. They were running
each individual ballot through the voting machines.
ANY BALLOT THE MACHINE REJECTED WAS THEN EXAMINED BY
HAND, AND IF THE "WILL OF THE VOTER" COULD BE
DETERMINED. THEY PREPARED A NEW BALLOT TO REPLACE THE
ORIGINAL REJECTED BALLOT AND ADDED THIS NEWLY CREATED
BALLOT TO THE COUNT. Naturally in a county Bush
carried almost 2-1 this resulted in a net increase of
Bush votes. Now in the Republican Seminole County
Florida, under the leadership of CONGRESSMAN DAN MICA
(R-Fla) acting on behalf of Bush.. The REJECTED VOTES
WERE EXAMINED AND ADDED TO THE OFFICIAL TOTALS. If the
Bush camp thinks that it is proper to examine by hand
the rejected votes in Republican Seminole County
Florida, AND to SUBSTITUTE NEW BALLOTS FOR THOSE
REJECTED, how can this possibly be PROPER when done in
Seminole County Florida and then be IMPROPER when done
in Palm Beach County Florida?"11/10/00<

Even considering the bias of the sources . . . Just a
little strange don't you think?
