Too bad the article you quoted is nothing but conjecture, based only on a look at the undervotes (which are not only a tiny minority of all the votes, but also a minority of the rejected ballots) in one county.
Bush won. Everyone knows it, Al Gore has said it publicly more than once. The only way to "prove" a Gore victory is to treat certain votes differently from all other votes (also known as "cooking the books").

Every objection shall be made in writing, and shall state clearly and concisely, and without argument, the ground thereof, and shall be signed by at least one Senator and one Member of the House of Representatives before the same shall be received.
