The Judge Who Holds the President-Elect in the Balance, Georgemag.com, Hachette-Filipacchi

Watched election returns in NYC with my colleagues at George magazine, at Editor-in-Chief Frank Lalli’s Upper West Side home. We were a tight knit bunch who had been working Election 2000 together for the previous six months, and it was Lalli’s way of congratulating us with a party. Incredible place, great collection.

Then, election night exploded into the Florida fiasco. Karl Rove appeared on the dozens of screens Frank and his wife had spread throughout the house and everyone saw Florida flip. Several of us immediately left the party. We were in editorial.

We went back to the office and researched all night to post work to the website. We all worked on a few people’s stuff. I got my piece detailing the judge who was hearing the very earliest stages of what would become Bush v. Gore, up online by 10:00 am, as it was happening.
