    I don't know off hand how the decision was made to include the two on the canvassing board. However, both supported the findings of the board that Franken won, so it is unlikely that they would have been arguing for rejection of their own report. Two members of the canvassing board were republican, two independent, and one a democrat. I believe that the majority of the supreme court were republicans, and the Governor was a republican. I doubt that there are many states in the country that could have done as well under the scrutiny received in Minnesota. Certainly Florida failed completely by comparison when it had its moment of infamy.

    I just read that there's a 3rd person on the Mass. special election ballot...independent Joe Kennedy. That's some good fortune. How many thousands of Acorn voters, rounded up homeless folks and those enticed into the booth with a free pack of Kools will see the Kennedy name on the ballot and pull the lever based on name familiarity alone instead of voting for Coakley as they were instructed? Dang, some of ya'll have me believing that Brown might actually have a puncher's chance.

    Keep hope alive!

    and his name is Joe to boot. Just too rich a coincidence. Those that you speak of will think it is the Hugo Chavez loving Joe Kennedy.

    So you say there is a chance...

    Breaking: SEIU caught using state resources to help Coakley, Brown says $7.5M-$75M fine appropriate

    The SEIU will stop at nothing to obtain political power. Their latest misstep is staggering. They have admitted to Fox25 Boston that they illegally used state resources to campaign on behalf of Martha Coakley.

    The e-mail, obtained by FOX25, raises questions about whether it violates laws barring the use of public resources for political activity. Within hours after the e-mail was sent to 7,500 employees on Thursday, Local 509 sent out another e-mail telling employees to "disregard" the previous message.

    The union said in a statement to FOX25, "Local 509 accidentally sent an e-mail to its state employee members asking them to volunteer for the Martha Coakley for US Senate campaign. This clearly should not have been done and Local 509 regrets the error."

    I find this hard to think this is an error. This was deliberate. The Scott Brown campaign has fired back.

    The Brown campaign is asking for the SEIU to pay Civil Penalties of $1,000 to $10,000 per violation treating the emails as individual violations. There is legal precedence for this in the CAN-SPAM legislation. Every email is treated separately for the purposes of computing a fine in current federal anti-spam law.

    I'm quite sure our Attorney General will be all over this and will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.

    latest suffolk univ poll. brown 50% coakley 46%... tuesday should be interesting.. Another note of interest,. In driving back and forth to work all I see is Brown signs,people standing on the side of the road holding Brown signs, and not one Coakley sign....... I can't watch TV until it's over. for Every Brown ad there is 3 or 4 Coakley ads bashing Brown... Everyone I talk to is sick of her ads, all false claims too.... As a local radio host says ,.they will say whatever they have to to get elected... they don't mean it.. it's just politics

    I think I read that Chokeley had a 31 point lead in November. And what a great name for a third party independent...Joe Kennedy That's great.

    And now our Dear Leader has to waste his weekend to fly to Massachusetts to save the day for Chokeley!!!

    If this race is indeed close next week and Brown wins by a 'few' votes just watch the demoncrats up there scramble to find fraudulent votes to get their gal elected...just like Minnesota.
