9. What "cost Gore the election" was the US Supreme Court

There were rules about how to count the chads that weren't punched all the way through. They weren't the problem.

The recount was halted by the Supreme Court.

Unprecedented in US history. Vincent Bugliosi's book The Betrayal of America examined this event.

from the link:
"The Betrayal of America is a book by Vincent Bugliosi (Thunder's Mouth Press, 2001, ISBN 1-56025-355-X) which is largely based on an article he wrote for The Nation entitled "None Dare Call It Treason," which argues that the U.S. Supreme Court's December 12, 2000 5‑4 decision in Bush v. Gore unlawfully handed the 2000 U.S. presidential election to George W. Bush. Bugliosi declares that the decision damaged both the U.S. Constitution and democracy in general. He accuses the five majority judges of moral culpability by endangering Americans' constitutional freedoms."
