Below is a quote from the book I explained in one of my recent postings on this StackExchange website.

George Bush's victory in the 2000 presidential election was an extremely narrow one, with a controversy over who won Florida's electoral votes, among others.

Who or what do you read the "among others" refers to in this context?

    "Among other controversies" would be my guess. No other possibility seems to make much sense. Aug 24, 2020 at 9:39
  • @Maciej Stachowski: Thanks. If that is the case, do we need the comma right before "among others"? Since the phrase "with a controversy over who won Florida's electoral votes" is written parenthetically, I thought that "among others" was linked with the part coming before the first comma.
