Judge rules Florida Secretary of State did not abuse her discretion in denying recount

A Florida judge ruled Friday that Secretary of State Katherine Harris did not arbitrarily refuse to accept hand recounts of Florida's presidential ballots in some counties. Vice President Al Gore's lawyers and other plaintiffs filed a combined lawsuit claiming Harris abused her discretion in refusing to accept further recounts.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Lawyers for Democratic presidential candidate Al Gore asked a Florida judge Thursday to rule that Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris arbitrarily refused to accept hand recounts of Florida's presidential ballots in some counties despite a court order to the contrary.

Florida law says the statewide vote must be certified one week after the election, and that is precisely what Harris did, said Joe Klock, Harris' lawyer. Harris asked counties to send written explanations as to why she should consider manual recounts to comply with Lewis' order, Klock said. Harris then compared the counties' explanations against a list of criteria drawn from prior court decisions regarding elections and found that the counties' reasons for needing extension deadlines did not hold up to case law, Klock said. "She exercised her discretion reasonably in determining whether or not those explanations complied with the acceptable standards," Klock said. "The secretary of state took enormous care to make sure she did not violate the order."

Jeff Fisher through a confidential informant alleges that the school has direct connections with Joseph Klock, and that a professor at Key College in Dania Beach, Florida and formally of Bay Point School informed him that his loyalty to Klock is more important than the truth about how the 2000 election was manipulated, and how it is possible for a repeat to occur in the upcoming November general election. Mel Sembler, a powerful fundraiser for the Bush Campaign in Florida, is someone who has knowledge of the activities at Bay Point College. We are sure the talented people of the Washington Post and the Miami Herald will release additional details in the upcoming days. Mel Sembler is Ambassador to Italy and a principal in several drug treatment facilities that are under investigation for gross mismanagement.

Joseph Klock, an attorney who facilitated the release of the professors son from an abusive treatment center was, coincidentally, the attorney for Congresswoman Katherine Harris who was the Secretary of State during the contested 2000 Florida recount which helped put George W. Bush in the White House. State's evidence is being given to FBI on 11/08/04

"coincidentally" I wonder...
