Rep. Katherine Harris has earned herself another dubious distinction. After doing her best to secure Florida's electoral votes for President Bush in 2000, the former Florida secretary of state turned U.S. Rep is now inventing terror plots to boost Bush's campaign. With such strong qualifications for office, who would have imagined such a thing could happen? The Herald Tribune reports this story> Excerpt:
