Will the Courts Decide Another Presidential Election?

Hosted by

Image-for-WWLA.jpgTwelve years after Bush versus Gore, there's still dispute about the US Supreme Court's split decision giving George W. Bush the presidency of the United States. Will the final decision be up to the courts this coming November?  Republicans around the country have passed new election-law procedures aimed at what they insist is widespread "voter fraud." Democrats insist they're violating the voting rights of the poor and minorities. Some 32 legal challenges are now pending — 21 of them in swing states, including Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania — any one of which has enough electoral votes to decide a close election.
