(Washington, DC) If George W. Bush wins Florida -- as the pundits expect -- and this captures the Presidency, he will, ironically, owe his victory to Elian Gonzalez. This is because the Miami Cuban-American community -- which broke almost evenly for Bill Clinton in the prior 2 elections -- voted overwhelmingly for Bush based on the acts of the Clinton-Gore Administration in returning Elian Gonzalez to Cuba, and gassing & beating innocent bystanders during the fateful raid of Attorney General Reno's INS agents in Little Havana last April 22.
Ironically, Governor George W. Bush of Texas and Jeb Bush of Florida did not take action to try to keep Elian in the United States. However, they were not responsible for the illegal acts of the Clinton-Gore Administration in violating the rights of Elian and other American citizens.
'Elian Gonzalez and the rest of the Clinton-Gore scandals have spoken,' stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. 'Now, they will speak again -- through Judicial Watch's cases against the Clinton-Gore Administration -- in the courts,' added Judicial Watch Chairman and General Counsel Larry Klayman.
