NPR's Debbie Elliott reports from Tallahassee that Florida's state legislature has been called into special session to consider appointing a slate of presidential electors. The legislature is controlled by Republicans who appear to favor appointing electors for Governor George W. Bush. Democratic legislators are speaking out against the special session, saying it is not appropriate for the legislature to appoint electors while court-ordered recounts are under way.
