The 2000 presidential election is the most controversial in US History, the result was contested because it was uncertain who won in Florida, a swing state. Al Gore won the popular vote, but the Supreme Court granted the victory to Bush by putting an end to the recount. Allegations of fraud have been cast on the Bushes as Jeb Bush was governor of Florida.
