Democratic Recount Lawyer Takes Umbrage with Clinton Invoking Recount

I wondered what the Democratic recount lawyers thought of Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY, invoking that madness from 2000 in the current controversy about seating the Florida and Michigan delegations.A recount lawyer who is neutral in the primary contest told me, "I don’t think it is a very apt usage of the recount. There is a big difference between what happened in Florida in 2000 – where partisan officials did everything possible to achieve an advantage in vote counting, where laws and rules were broken, and where the Supreme Court defied law and tradition to stop a vote count – and what is happening now, where we are having a party rules dispute that is open, above-board, and everyone knew about before the election was held."Concludes the lawyer: "It’s apples and oranges."- jpt
