Interestingly (and not reported very much) their count revealed that the election result stood.
ISTR that it was slightly more nuanced than that. The result went something like: If only the votes in those few counties where Gore had specifically requested a recount were counted correctly, then the result (ie, a Bush win) stood. However, if all the votes were recounted, then Gore won.
Of course, once you've open this particular can of worms, you start looking at other states with very close margins & things start looking dicey all over the place for both candidates
