I was a close debate race between Vice President Al Gore and the governor of Texas, George W Bush. One of them had to get Florida to win and the votes were very close but some were damaged or not marked correctly
Both Gore and Bush went to Florida Courts and demanded that there was a recount. The court had the votes recounted and Bush’s lawyer even appealed this case to the Supreme Court
The Supreme Court ruled a 5-4 decision and they ordered the recount to stop and they just settled with the votes they had. Bush won by 537 votes, enough to get him the electoral college. Bush got 271 electoral votes and Gore only got 266 so Bush was president.
The amendment related to this case if the 14th amendment, the equal protection clause which ensures that I doesn’t differentiate people on matters that are irrelevant to a government objective.
The debate made issues with with fairness about American elections. People thought the Supreme Court made a decision outside its normal power. People also thought that the case should’ve been dealt with in Florida.
