    Gore conceded. There were 5 recounts. The only thing I can think of to even get close to calling it a violation is that it was not a statewide recount.

    It was a violation of the Equal Protection Clause because they were recounting certain counties instead of the entire state.

    Five independent re-counts, five Bush victories.

    It's over!

    Source(s): The real question is: Why did the liberal-biased media call Florida for Gore while the very conservative Panhandle counties were still voting? How many thousands of votes did that cost Bush?

    It wasn't, Bush v Gore was a fraud that left one justice retiring in shame of the once respectable court.

    Because in some counties a dimpled chad was a legally valid vote and in other counties it was not.
