Steve pointed to this transcript of a Tom Daschle/Dick Gephardt press conference in which they make the point that the uncounted votes in Florida will be available through the FOIA, so it’s in Bush’s best interests to go ahead and have all the votes counted now. I heard a rumor yesterday that I have not yet been able to confirm, which was that New Jersey governor Christine Todd Whitman suggested banning FOIA requests for the Florida votes for the next 8 years. If that’s true, it’s one of the most undemocratic ideas I’ve read.
