189. Gore supported
a recount, but there were different standards used in each county. Also, inititally, he advocated specific counties recounting their votes. HTe problem was, since he advocated and fought for a county by county recount with varying standards, it was a clear violation of equal protection. The SCOTUS got fishy when they voted 5 to 4 to allow no recounts, after the 7-2 vote that said the county to county vote was a violation of equal protection, due to the lack of uniformity.
