21. The other part of the response was that LePore created the
butterfly ballot because it allowed the printing to be larger, and therefore would be more readable for older citizens.

I believed that at the time, especially since she was said to be a "Democrat". But now I tend to believe that this was done purposely, in conjunction with the Bush machine. LePore was either very incompetent or purposely trying to throw the election to Bush in the way she handled the recount. They used very stringent standards and were extremely slow in completing it. They failed to make the deadline, so Katherine Harris didn't even include the PBC recount results in her official certification. And the PBC recount gave a net advantage to Gore that was about a thousand votes less than what the Miami Herald came up with, largely due to their extremely stringent standards.

It's amazing that LePore didn't get voted out of office.
