Democratic Presidential Candidate John Kerry is exploringhis legal options after learning that there are seriousquestions about the validity of the vote count in Ohio. OnDecember 23, Senator Kerry's Ohio attorney Jerry Hoffheimerstated on MSNBC's Countdown that the Senator will be seekingto obtain evidence being presented in a recount suit beingpressed by the Green and Libertarian parties in Ohio.
It is being alleged that Triad GSI, which supplied votingmachines to half of Ohio counties either failed to properlysecure the machines or intentionaly interfered with theiroperation, causing them to produce incorrect vote countsthat favored President Bush.
Mr. Hofheimer has said that Senator Kerry is not at thistime disputing the President's victory in Ohio, but onlyseeking assurances that the recount of votes in Ohiocounties has been carried out accurately.
Should the Ohio vote be invalidated or another recountreveal that Senator Kerry won the state, a constitutionalcrisis at least the equal of the 2000 Florida controversywould occur.
