You're from the Antipodes so your confusion is understandable and you are to be excused....

The terms 'chad' and 'hanging' refers to a bone of contention during the 2000 US Presidential Election.  Many voters, especially in Florida, were using an electronically-tabulated voting system that required the voter to 'punch out' a little piece of paper (a 'chad') from the ballot to indicate their selection.  Not infrequently, the chad did not completely separate from the ballot but was still attached by a corner or two (known colloquially as a 'hanging chad'); others did not detach at all but merely displayed a dimple in the piece that should have detached, becoming a so-called 'bulging' or 'pregnant chad'.  In either case the electronic tabulating machines did not score these ballots correctly, and this led to lawsuits, recounts, re-recounts, and manual tabulation of ballots by people using magnifying glasses to carefully examine each and every one.

  

It might also be noted that at the time, the Governor of Florida was one Jeb Bush, brother of Republican Presidential candidate George W. Bush — spawning accusations and innuendoes that one brother would be looking out for the other, legality and ethics notwithstanding.  Eventually, after much fuss, furor, and fol-de-rol George Bush was declared the winner despite the vituperative rhetoric of Al Gore and the Democratic party.  And as Mousy is commenting ("Hold a grudge much?"), he and they have never quite gotten over it.
