Letter: Biased article

I have to complain about your unattributed news item about Joe Lieberman on Jan. 3, page C7. I am disappointed that news writers and political partisans insist on perpetuating the myth that the Supreme Court gave the 2000 election to George W. Bush. All the court said was that Florida had to abide by their own election laws.

Later recounts by independent news organizations showed that Bush won the popular vote and therefore the Florida electors.

I was surprised there was no uproar to abolish the Electoral College after Gore had won the national popular vote. The states can award the electors proportionally without a Constitutional amendment.

In the future, please edit your news items for factual accuracy as well as partisan bias.
