Florida recount mandated by law

I am writing regarding the Mirror editorial that appeared last Friday, titled “Clinton forgets about Gore.”

It was not factual. The recount of the votes in Florida was mandated by law because the vote was so close.

The Supreme Court, in a 5-4 decision, decided the outcome when it stopped the recount.

Gore won the popular vote by over 400,000 votes.
