Typical left wing ignorance. Gore wanted a recount in only heavily Democrat counties, a fraud virtually guaranteeed to boost his vote total. Bush moved to quash that.

A consortium of 8 media organizations concluded that Bush would have won Florida under most recount scenarios.

FactCheck.org : The Florida Recount of 2000

The fact is that it was basically a tie election, much closer than the usual error rate of about 1/2 of one percent in US elections. But doubtless we will keep hearing this meme from the left for years to come.

Bush didn't "steal" the 2000 election.

No, tricky lawyer movements and questionable vote counting did win it for Bush.
