Bush v. Gore, 531 U.S. (2000), a court case before the United States Supreme Court marked by scandalous abuse of process and corrupt partisanship on the part of the Republican-appointed majority of the bench.
-prevented determination of the will of voters in Florida,
-over-ruled state authority over electoral process, and
-appointed G.W. Bush president.
The judicial culprits in this partisan travesty were:
-O'Connor, Sandra Day
