Here's an example of a ballot that Franken wants thrown out:
You folks in Minnesota need to take a lesson from Washington State. In the 2004 governors race re-count new ballots were found 18 different times, many from the same place. These "misplaced" ballots changed the winner. When the other party contested the re-count results in court, the court found that indeed, voter fraud had taken place. The other party appealed the verdict to the state Supreme Court that found that indeed voter fraud had taken place but that voter fraud was no reason to overturn an election.
Guess which party won the governors race and what the party affiliation was for the supreme court justices that stated that voter fraud was not a reason to overturn the election.
The re-count judges have had a talk with all of the " observers " to explain the challange proceedure and to please not waste everyones time with crap like this. The re-count people are doing a great job and putting up with a lot from both sides. Only a real idiot will not be satisfied when the re-count is finalized. Both men want to emerge the winner and will be satisfied with the effort put forth.. What is going on now is politics and not unexpected. Silly, but not unexpected.
Every Coin Has Two Sides Regards

Never trust a dog to watch your food!
I thought this one was much more interesting. It shows ballots that are challenged by both sides. My prediction, a lot of the ballots being challenged by either side will in the end by counted by the canvassing board. Both sides are pushing their luck.

Thar ya go! And if ya live in Florida, ya learn what a hooplehead is every time there's an election. Heh heh heh heh
Unfortunately, Hew...the peoples republic of Minesoooooooota probably has several on that recount board.
But it speaks volumns eh? How the hayel could a freak like Franken become the standard bearer for the DFL??? Apparently they've been drinking the lutefisk lye. Who woulda thunk Ole, Lena, and Sven could be duped that easily?
When the one you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.
Thanks for your support for the great citizens of Minnesota.
Don't worry, with either Senator we'll still keep doing our part to subsidize your state's existence with our federal tax dollars.
Do you really want us to stop drinking the lye???
